President Trump is facing dozens of new allegations of sexual assault and other inappropriate sexual behavior. That’s according to the new book “All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator.” The book includes 43 new allegations. That’s on top of the already two dozen accusations of attempted rape, sexual assault and forced groping that President Trump is already facing. In a newly released excerpt of the book, a woman named Karen Johnson says Trump hid behind a tapestry at Mar-a-Lago and then grabbed her and forcibly kissed her without her consent at a New Year’s Eve party in the early 2000s. She said, “I was so scared because of who he was. … I don’t even know where it came from. I didn’t have a say in the matter.”
