A former Donald Trump aide is claiming the president kissed her without her consent. 

In an interview with the Washington Post, Alva Johnson accused Trump of kissing her before a campaign rally in Tampa in August of 2016. Johnson explained the incident in detail and said that the image of it still haunts her.

“He’s coming straight for my lips. So I turn my head, and he kisses me right on corner of my mouth, still holding my hand the entire time,” Johnson said. “Then he walks on out.”

“I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” she added. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”

Johnson filed a lawsuit against the president on Monday, news that broke along with the interview from the Post.  In the lawsuit, she claimed that he stood so close to her that she "could feel his breath on her skin.”The White House has already denied the allegations, saying that they have several witnesses who can counter Johnson's story.

“This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote in a statement shared with WaPo.

It's not the first time Trump has been accused of sexual assault and he admitted on tape to as much during a taping of Access Hollywood.

“I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he told Billy Bush. “Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything."
