President Donald Trump's history of accusations of sexual misconduct will resurface Monday, with NBC's Megyn Kelly set to interview three of his accusers on live TV.

She will be speaking with Jessica Leeds, Rachel Crooks, and Samantha Holvey, all of whom have publicly alleged that the president sexually harassed them. It said "the timing and absurdity of these false claims speak volumes".

During the segment, the White House issued a statement to Kelly regarding the allegations against the president. We're private citizens, and for us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and especially how he views women, and for them to say 'meh, we don't care, ' it hurts. She's accused Trump of inappropriate behavior, including "inspecting" contestants in changing rooms at the Miss USA competitions he used to own.

Megyn Kelly, who has a famously tumultuous relationship with the President, hosted three women who've accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct on her show on Monday morning.

Holvey suggested it made sense for Trump's accusers to speak to the public again given the way the country's atmosphere - and response to alleged sexual misconduct - has shifted over the a year ago.

"Just looking me over like I was a piece of meat", Ms. Holvey said of the exchange. "It was shocking", she said.

Trump has said all the women are lying and the White House also said Monday the women's stories are not true.

Trump later came into the office and asked for her phone number, she said, and she asked, "What do you need that for?" It went on to say that because the American people still elected Trump they have "voiced their judgement". Al Franken, D-Minn., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., both of whom said last week that they would leave Congress over the mounting allegations.

"We know better, we know a lot better, predators and harassers must be held accountable", said Greenwald. "And we should all be willing to listen to them".

Two Democratic senators, meanwhile, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of OR, called on Mr Trump to resign over the allegations.

A couple of years later, she saw Trump at a Humane Society charity event, and identified herself, he remembered her. I would feel differently now, I'd like to think.

Several women who accused President Trump of sexual misconduct are telling their stories again, saying "the environment is different" than it was when they went public during the presidential campaign past year.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual relationships with underage girls back when he was a district attorney in his 30s. "He comes in like he owns the place", Holvey said. But he fired a defiant parting shot at Trump and other Republicans he said have survived much worse accusations. I was just simply there for his pleasure.

Likewise, Crooks told The Times that Trump forcibly kissed her when she met him outside a Trump Tower elevator in 2005 when she was a 22-year-old receptionist at a real estate investment firm.
