Trump claims coordinated attack in allegations

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (KGO) -- Explosive accusations in the race for the White Have surfaced. Two more women have come forward with allegations that Donald Trump groped and kissed them.

Thursday morning First Lady Michelle Obama said at a rally in New Hampshire, "it has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted."

In a bombshell New York Times report, Jessica Leeds said Donald Trump groped her three decades ago on a plane.

A former Trump Tower secretary Rachel Crooks told the Times that in 2005, Trump introduced himself in the elevator one day by kissing her on the mouth.

The Republican nominee said: "They will seek to destroy everything about you including your reputation."
