By MARIANNE FERNANDEZ – MARIANNA MARTINEZ, Associated Press WriterThe Associated Press – NEW YORK (AP) Donald Trump says he’s been having “sex with the World” with the U.S. since he was an 11-year-old boy, and he wants to keep doing so for the rest of his life.
The Republican presidential nominee said Tuesday that he’s never been with someone who has been less interested in him than the women he’s dated.
He was referring to a conversation he had with his mother when he was about 14 years old.
He said the woman asked if he had ever had sex with anyone older than him.
“She was very embarrassed,” Trump said, explaining he hadn’t.
“I’m so glad she’s not my mother.”
“I’ve been having sex with people I’ve never met before,” he said, noting that he has done so with his wife Melania and their three adult children.
Trump’s statement comes a day after a White House meeting with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, a former Miss Universe who has criticized Trump for the president’s comments about women.
He also has criticized U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
In his speech, Trump said he “has always respected women” and that he’d never been sexually assaulted, but he added, “I know the words ‘bimbo’ and ‘slut’ are not helpful.”
The Associated Media and other news organizations had previously reported that Trump had said women are “sluts” and “whores” because of their looks.
But the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
Trump said his sexual encounters with women have not included kissing, hugging or cuddling, but rather a “long, hard kiss.”
“They know what it’s like,” Trump told a room full of about 200 women at a Manhattan restaurant.
“It’s a very, very different experience than kissing someone.”
The women said they agreed to sit with the candidate for about five minutes and were “very, very nervous.”
“He just started shaking my hand, he kissed me, and then I told him that he was going to get his way, and that I wasn’t going to talk about it,” said Sarah, a retired advertising executive who said she was 16 at the time.
Sarah said she didn’t remember whether she was kissed or not, but she said Trump “kept coming closer and closer to my body, kissing me and rubbing my breasts.”
“You’re the only one who doesn’t know that it was not consensual,” she said.
She said Trump kissed her twice, once in the mouth, and again in the vagina.
“He did that repeatedly, very forcefully, and I thought he was just going to keep going and going,” Sarah said.
“He wasn’t trying to kiss me or anything,” she added.
“But it felt like he was grabbing me.”
“Then I just started screaming,” Sarah added.
“It was so painful.
It felt like I was going out of my body,” she told AP.
She described her “shocked” face and “fear” at what Trump was doing.
“At the time, I didn’t think anything of it,” she recalled.
“What could I do?”
“But now I know that was a mistake,” she continued.
“We are going to have to come together.”
“If he had tried to kiss a younger woman, we would not have had any of these stories, we wouldn’t have had a chance to have our story told,” Sarah continued.
Trump had previously denied having sex, and his campaign manager later apologized for the remark.
But Trump did not apologize in his Monday night speech.
In a new interview with the conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt, Trump also suggested that women should have more respect for him than men.
“I think it’s time to say to our ladies, ‘You better be respectful.
Don’t touch me, don’t kiss me,'” Trump said.
“You better respect me, because I’m not touching you.”
The comments from Trump come after a woman accused Trump of grabbing her breast while she was asleep during a 2003 interview in which the billionaire businessman was being interviewed by Hewitt.
Hewitt has said that he never had a sexual encounter with Trump, but that he later regretted having an encounter with the Republican nominee when he learned about it in the news.
The woman, Kathy Shelton, said she woke up after having an episode of “sexomnia” and woke up to Trump’s unwanted hand on her breast.
“When I realized I was being kissed, he pulled me against him and said, ‘Do you like that?
Do you like being kissed by a billionaire?'”
Shelton said.HEWITT, in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, denied that Shelton was “shaken up” over her
