Less than two week away from the US presidential elections, fresh trouble arrived for the Republican candidate Donald Trump as a new video from a 2011 corporate event in Australia showing him sexually humiliating a woman in front of an audience, according to reports by Huffington Post.
The video shows Trump addressing a large crowd, where he says that he believes in taking revenge. “Get even with people. If they screw you, screw them back 10 times as hard. I really believe that,” he says, going on to show the audience a “live example” and calling the 2004 Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins on stage.

Trump, angry with Hawkins, believed she had “dissed” him by declining to introduce him at the event. “I was so angry at her yesterday. Seriously, as I said, I thought that she dissed me. I thought that my Jennifer .. I’m going around saying she’s my favorite Miss Universe, but I think I like the new one better, Jennifer. So I go around saying she’s the greatest … then when I came here, there was no Jennifer Hawkins to introduce me,” he says in the video.
Hawkins laughs apologetically and tries to explain herself by saying that there was “miscommunication with my management,” and that she “felt really bad.” Accepting her apology, Trump says, “When she found out, she got in her car and she got her ass over here, and I love her.”
However, he continues to humiliate her and describes how he would have embarrassed Hawkins onstage had she slighted him. “I was actually going to get up and tell you that Jennifer is a beautiful girl on the outside, but she’s not very bright,” he says. “That wouldn’t have been true, but I would have said it anyway.”
Trump then went on to make her the subject of a sexual innuendo, announcing to the audience, “She came tonight, she came ― came, she came, she came,” and lingered on it until got he prolonged laughter he was looking for. Even as Hawkins calls Trump out for his “filthy mind”, Trump pulled her close in an attempt to kiss her. He does manage to kiss her cheeks despite Hawkins attempts to avoid it.
This is not the first time Trump has humiliated a former Miss Universe publicly. Alicia Machado, former Miss America, had said that Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping”, and invited the media to watch her working out, when she had gained weight after the pageant. Recently, a video released by Washington Post revealed Donald Trump bragging sexual assault and getting away with it. Many other women have also come up accusing Donald Trump of sexually abusing them.
