Five women accuse Donald Trump of Touching them inappriopriately

After the release of the infamous 2005 access Hollywood video where the Republican
Presidential candidate for President 'Donald Trump' boasted of groping women leaked, his campaign has been bleeding.

The polls showing how he is 9 points behind Hillary Clinton although the gap of 11 points came up after some days.

The New York Times claims to have spoken to two women who say they were victims of the Republican nominee in two separate incidents that took place in 1980 and another in 2005.
Those allegations were then followed by ones from the Palm Beach Post and People Magazine, while Yahoo News republished an accusation made earlier this year. 

Trump's campaign denied the accusations, saying they are 'fiction' and 'completely false'. 
His former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski also raised questions about the validity of the allegations, before trying to compare Trump's alleged abuse to Hillary Clinton's work as a lawyer when she defended a rapist.

Trump's legal team also appeared to hit back against the claim, sending the New York Times a letter demanding a retraction.
'Your article is reckless, defamatory and constitutes libel per se. It is apparent from, among other things, the timing of the article, that this is nothing more than a politically-motivated attempt to defeat Mr Trump's candidacy,' it reads.

Meanwhile, two sources in Trump's campaign told a lawsuit against the Times is already being drafted. One of those sources, a senior campaign aide, said the Republican nominee for president is going to 'war' against the newspaper.

Jessica Leeds, a 74-year-old former businesswoman who lives in Manhattan, was the first woman featured in the New York Times story.

Leeds told the newspaper she was 'assaulted' by Trump on a flight when she was 38.

The 74-year-old explained how she was sat beside the Republican nominee in first class, when he lifted the arm-rest between then and allegedly began touching her.
