Trump is no stranger to allegations of improper behavior toward women. At least 16 women have accused him of sexual misconduct, including Summer Zevos, a contestant on Trump’s former reality show, “The Apprentice.” Some of Trump's accusers held a press conference Monday, where alleged victims Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks detailed their concerns about Trump and called for Congress to launch an investigation into the issue.
