BBC’s “Panorama” program this weekend will release a bombshell report alleging that President Donald Trump used to regularly pursue teenage models who were as young as 17.
According to a press release issued Friday by the BBC, the investigation found that while “there’s no evidence that Donald Trump had sex with underage girls… the program has been told he did pursue models in their teens.”
The report is based on accounts of parties Trump threw in the 1980s and 1990s, in which drugs and alcohol were allegedly provided to underage teen models.
Witness Barbara Pilling tells “Panorama” that she was told by her modeling agency to attend a Trump party when she was just 17 — and that the future president hit on her when she arrived.
Specifically, she recalls to the BBC that Trump approached her and asked for her age — and when she replied she was 17, he said, “Oh great, so you’re not too young and you’re not too old.”
Trump at the time was in his 40s.
Pilling says that she resisted Trump’s advances and went to the bathroom, where another underage model told her that Trump tried to “grab my ass.”
