In a shocking report that could bring more trouble for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, three women have accused him of sexual assault.

Jessica Leeds, 74, accused Trump of groping her on a plane while Rachel Crooks alleged the Republican nominee kissed her outside an elevator in Trump Tower when she was a 22-year-old receptionist in 2005.

According to a report in the Palm Beach Post, a woman alleged that the businessman groped her at his Mar-a-Lago resort 13 years ago, as well.

Earlier it was also reported that a federal judge in New York has ordered a status conference hearing into a civil lawsuit submitted by a woman who alleged that Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump raped her in 1994 when she was 13.

The hearing will take place on 16 December in a New York court as ordered by Federal Judge Ronnie Abrams.
