Former ‘Apprentice’ contestant says Trump kissed her

WASHINGTON — A former contestant on “The Apprentice” says Donald Trump made unwanted sexual contact with her at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2007.

Summer Zervos appeared at a news conference Friday with attorney Gloria Allred. Zervos is among several women who have made sexual allegations against the Republican nominee. He has strenuously denied them.

Zervos was a contestant on Trump’s show in 2006. She said she later contacted Trump sbout a job.

Zervos said after their initial meeting, Trump kissed her on the lips and asked for her phone number.

She said weeks later, Trump invited her to meet him at a hotel. Zervos says during that meeting, Trump became sexually aggressive, kissing her open-mouthed and touching her breasts.

Zervos says she rejected Trump’s advances and he began talking as if it were a job interview. She said she was offered a low-paying job at a Trump-owned golf course.

Allred says her client told her parents and others about the incident shortly after it occurred.
