'In a couple of years, I'll be dating you': What a 46-year-old Donald Trump told two 14-year-old choirgirls as they performed for him outside the Plaza
Donald Trump told a group of 14-year-old girls he would be 'dating' them in 'a couple of years' in 1992, the latest in a stream of decades-old comments to have emerged as he battles for his spot in the presidential race.
Then 46, the businessman watched the choir girls perform at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, New York, before reportedly making the questionable comment.
It was reported in a Chicago Tribune newspaper article at the time under the headline: 'Such a comedian'.
'Donald Trump turned up Monday for a carol sing by a youth choir outside Manhattan's Plaza Hotel.
'He asked two of the girls how old they were. After they replied they were 14, Trump said: 'Wow. Just think - in a couple of years I'll be dating you,' the report, from a December 1992 wire brief said.
It was published by The Los Angeles Times on Friday morning, hours after footage in which he agreed jokingly that he was a 'sexual predator' emerged.
In the 2006 video, he shrugged and laughed as the label was given to him by radio host Robin Quivers. Trump's 24-year-old daughter, who would have been 10 in 1992, was present.
On Thursday, other footage in which he boasted he would be dating a '10-year-old girl in 10 years' surfaced.
In the 1992 Entertainment Tonight tape, Trump, who was 46 at the time, allowed the girl on to the escalator at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York.
As she rode up it with a group of others, he was caught on microphone boasting: 'I'm going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?'.
The video, which was released by CBS News on Wednesday, is the latest in which the Republican presidential candidate has made questionable comments towards women.
At the time Trump had been divorced from his first wife, Ivanka, for a year and was dating his second wife, Marla Maples.
The footage showed Trump asking the girl: 'Are you going up the escalator?' while both are out of view.
'Yeah,' she replies, before stepping on to it.
Still out of frame, he then boasted: 'I'm going to be dating her in 10 years, can you believe it.'
The unknown girl was 10 at the time, CBS, which owns Entertainment Tonight, claimed, and was in a group of other children.
