Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran has now joined an increasing number of women who have stepped forward with sexual assault allegations against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

During an interview with CNN Thursday night, Corcoran explained that she has only been alone in a room with Trump once and at the time, both she and his then-wife Marla Maples had been pregnant. The nominee decided to use the coincidence to make a lewd comment about the size of her breasts.

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

“That, of course, is nothing compared to anything that we’ve been hearing in the press,” the investor continued. “But I did think afterward, how would I have felt if I had been a young woman, not a successful businesswoman, and been in a situation like that? I would have felt very compromised.”

The reality television star also revealed that she “very much” believes the sexual assault claims recently made against Trump.

“I just think it’s preposterous that he’s claiming he has done nothing like that,” she said. “I mean, he has been that way. Always.”
