Trump on Sunday blasted the story as a “lame hit piece” published by a “failing” newspaper to make him look bad.
Women have been coming forward since the article was published saying that they were misquoted or their stories ‘spun’ to make Trump look bad.
“He never made me feel demeaned in any way,” Rowanne Brewer Lane said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”
“He was very gracious,” she added of Trump. “I saw him around all types of people, all types of women. He was very kind, thoughtful, generous. I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump.”
