Paris Hilton says Trump's sexual assault accusers 'just want fame'

Paris Hilton has claimed the women who had accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment were "just trying to get attention and fame".

She told writer Irin Carmon for US Marie Claire:

“I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I’m always around guys, and I listen to them speak."

When quizzed on what she thought of the number of women who had accused Trump of sexual assault, the businesswoman replied:

“I think that they are just trying to get attention and get fame.”

Carmon later tweeted out an screen grab of her transcript from the  interview with Paris - revealing details of the conversation that did not make it into the final article.

The model elaborated more on the infamous Access Hollywood tape:

“I’ve heard guys say some pretty crazy things.

"Like, worse than that. So I think that when someone doesn’t realise they’re being filmed or recorded, they say things.

"Especially with a guy.”

And she also continued her thoughts on the women who had made allegations against the now-president.

She said:

“I feel like a lot of people, when something happens all these opportunists will come out.

“They want to get money or get paid not to say anything or get a settlement when nothing really happened.

"So I don’t believe any of that.”

The DJ went on to suggest that some of the women who had made the accusations against Trump had actually be trying to seduce him.

She added:

“I’m sure they were trying to be with him too.

“Because a lot of women, I’ve seen, like him because he’s wealthy and he’s charming and he’s good-looking so I feel like a lot of these girls just made the story up.”

Social media quickly hit out at the businesswoman's claims.
