'Shark Tank' star says Trump once made comments about her breast size in a business meeting

Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran is joining a growing group of women who have come forward with sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump.

In an interview with CNN anchor Erin Burnett on Thursday, Corcoran revealed that she had once been the target of Trump's inappropriate and lewd comments when she and the Republican presidential nominee sat in on a business meeting together.

"I've never been in a room with him alone except on one occasion. I was pregnant with my first child at the time, and so was his second wife," she said. "He compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air. [Makes gestures.] I was in a business meeting! I was shocked."

She added though it was "nothing compared to anything that we've been hearing in the press ... I did think afterwards, how would I have felt if I had been a young woman — not a successful business woman — and been in a situation like that? I would have felt very compromised."

When asked by Burnett if she believed all of the recent claims made against Trump, Corcoran noted, "I very much do. I just think it's preposterous that he's claiming he's done nothing like that. He's been that way, always."
