A woman who has accused President TrumpDonald John TrumpNASA exec leading moon mission quits weeks after appointment The Hill's Morning Report — After contentious week, Trump heads for Japan Frustration boils over with Senate's 'legislative graveyard' MORE of forcibly kissing her said Tuesday night she’s not surprised the president attacked her on Twitter, but said Trump should be afraid of the truth.

“I would think as our president he would have more important things to do than tweet at me and try to discredit my story. I know what’s true. He knows what’s true, and I think he should be afraid of that,” Rachel Crooks said on CNN.

Crooks added that it can be a bit daunting to speak out against the president, but she feels she has a right to share her views.

“When the truth is on your side it doesn’t feel as bad. And I feel like I have a license to say what I feel about him given what he did to me,” she said. 


Crooks, who has said Trump forcibly kissed her in Trump Tower in 2006, was the subject of a Washington Post profile that was published Monday. 

On Tuesday morning, Trump addressed the story in a tweet, calling the accusations false. 

"A woman I don’t know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met, is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her (for two minutes yet) in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago," the president wrote on Twitter.

Crooks has accused Trump of forcing himself on her on the 24th floor of Trump Tower, not in the lobby.

Crooks, who is running for office in Ohio, responded Tuesday afternoon by calling on Trump to release security footage from the incident.

“Let’s clear this up for everyone. It’s liars like you in politics that have prompted me to run for office myself,” she tweeted.

More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct since the beginning of his presidential campaign. He has denied the accusations.
