The daughter of Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, has recalled “creepy” comments the president allegedly made about her when she was just 15 years old.
Samantha Cohen, who is now 24 years old, spoke to CNN about a series of comments Trump made about her, following the release of her father’s memoir last week, which revealed the alleged exchange.
In Cohen’s book, named, Disloyal: A Memoir, he claimed that Trump whistled at his 15-year-old daughter as she played tennis in 2012, and said: “what a piece of a**. I would love some of that.”
The president was then told by Cohen that she was his daughter, and Trump allegedly replied: “when did she get so hot?” before he called her over and kissed the 15-year-old on the cheek, according to the Daily Mail.
Cohen also alleged that the president warned his daughter to: “Be careful,” and added: “I’ll be dating your friends in a few years”.
Speaking on CNN on Monday, Samantha said that the encounter revealed in her father’s book, made her think that the president is interested in “younger women”.
“What stood out to me in that moment was he said to my dad, ‘Well, there’s no way that she got her looks from you, thank God you married a beautiful woman,’” she told the CNN host. “And I was desensitized to men making creepy comments about me, but I was not desensitized to someone blatantly insulting and degrading my father in front of me.”
Cohen went on to say that she didn’t believe that Trump was actually making advances toward her, but she did say that she “had the impression that he was interested in younger women and that, you know, women would age out for him and that when one woman became too old, he’d find a new younger one.”
