Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called on Trump to resign, meanwhile, echoing a demand made the previous day by two other Senate Democrats, while a group of 54 Congresswomen backed Trump's accusers in calling for a probe.

On Monday morning, Brave New Films, a non-profit, livestreamed a press conference which featured three women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. Holvey told Kelly, "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".

In recent months countless women have broken their silence about the abuse they have allegedly suffered at the hands of powerful men in the worlds of entertainment, the media, business and politics.

"The environment's different", Holvey said.

Crooks says that she has discovered that "everybody has a story" of sexual misconduct. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who previously said he believes the women, is carefully softening his stance and is now suggesting, "the people of Alabama are going to decide".

On NBC News on Monday, Ms Holvey said Mr Trump had ogled her and other competitors in 2006 at the Miss USA beauty pageant, which he owned.

However, the claims by the three women have been waved aside by the White House which said the women were making "false claims". "The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them".

Three women have joined the ranks of accusers against US President Donald Trump.Mr Trump and the White House have denied the allegations. "And the people of this country, at a decisive election, supported President Trump, and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process".

She appeared alongside two other Trump accusers at a NY news conference, Samantha Holvey, who alleged that Trump walked uninvited into a backstage dressing area where she and others were in various states of undress at a 2012 beauty pageant Trump owned, and Jessica Leeds, who accused Trump of groping her when she sat next to him on a commercial airline flight in the late 1970s.

"President Trump has committed assault according to these women", she said.

The women said they do not think Trump will resign over the allegations but that he should be held accountable.

Haley, speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation", broke from the Trump administration line on the 16 sexual misconduct allegations that face the president.

Democratic senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of OR also called over the weekend for Trump to step down.

The White House issued a statement during Kelly's show reiterating that it denies all charges.

"They've investigated other Congress members, so I think it only stands fair that he be investigated as well", Holvey added. "No one is above the law".
