They will not be forgotten.

In early December 2017, two senators called for Trump to resign over the 19 sexual assault allegations against him.

Ever since Harvey Weinstein was fired for sexual assault, men and women alike have been speaking up about their alleged assaults hoping something will be done about their cases — and many people have been fired for sexual assault.

Matt Lauer was kicked off of the Today show. Kevin Spacey was fired from the House of Cards. Dr. Larry Nassar who treated hundreds of Olympians is in jail. The list of punishment goes on, but Trump isn't included. He’s still in the White House despite being accused of sexual assault and/or misconduct by 19 different women.

Three women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct appeared on the Today show and spoke with Megyn Kelly:

The allegations seem to have no impact on Mr. President though democratic senators Cory Booker and Jeff Merkley have called for Trump’s resignation.

"I want to be absolutely clear. Donald Trump should resign the presidency,” said Sen. Merkley in an email. "At least 17 women have accused Donald Trump of horrific sexual misconduct, and I believe them. Moreover, he's bragged on tape about that behavior. This is not about politics. This is not about policy. I disagree with him on many things, but this is not about that."

The number of women claiming Trump abused them is large, but the white house basically said they are all liars.

“Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?” a CBS news reporter asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in October.

“Yeah, we’ve been clear on that from the beginning, and the president’s spoken on it,” Sanders replied.

Some of the women who have accused Trump appeared at a press conference Monday.

Let’s just take a minute to recall all of the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault and their stories.

1. Jessica Leeds (1980s).

Heavy

Leeds said that Trump allegedly touched her while sitting next to her on a flight to New York. She claims he grabbed her breasts and tried to reach up her skirt. Leeds felt assaulted and quickly moved to the back of the plane away from Trump.

“He was an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”

Trump denied this event, and told the New York Times “None of this ever happened.”

2. Ivana Trump (1989).

Trump’s ex-wife Ivana claimed the president raped her during their marriage. The story first came out in a book published by Harry Hurt III titled “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump.”

She claimed he had a painful scalp surgery and lashed out at her after. According to the book, Ivana locked herself in her room and cried.

“As a woman, I felt violated, as the love and tenderness, which he normally exhibited towards me, was absent. I referred to this as a ‘rape,’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.”

Trump’s legal counsel, Michael Cohen, told The Daily Beast that Trump “never raped anybody.”

During the same interview, Cohen also incorrectly said that you cannot rape a spouse.

3. Jill Harth (1992-1993).

Harth met Trump in 1992 to recruit him for a festival. She says he immediately began making sexual advances on her.

She claims Trump groped her under the table at dinner with beauty pageant contestants. Later, in 1993, Trump wanted to see the women he was sponsoring. Harth visited his mansion to finalize a deal, and he made another unwanted advance in one of the children’s bedrooms.

“He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again,” Harth said, “and I had to physically say: ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he be doing this when I’m there for business?”

She later filed a lawsuit against Trump in 1997. Trump denied these claims as well.

“It is disheartening that one has to dignify a response to the below absurd query,” said Michael Cohen, executive vice-president and special counsel to Trump. “Mr. Trump denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity.”

4. Kristen Anderson (early 1990s).

ABC News

Anderson told her story in 2016 during Trump’s presidential campaign.

She said that in the early 1990s Trump reached up her skirt and felt her vagina through her underwear while at a nightspot in Manhattan. She didn't realize it was Trump until she pushed his hand away and got a look at his face, saying “nobody else has those eyebrows.”

Trump claimed the accusation was false.

“Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email.

5. Lisa Boyne (1996).

Boyne said she was invited to dinner with Trump by her friend Sonja Morgan and that the two picked her up in a limo. During the drive, Trump allegedly spoke of his sexual conquests and who he planned on sleeping with next.

While at dinner at a restaurant, Boyne claims Trump wouldn't let any of the women get out of their seats unless they walked across the table. As they did so, she said Trump would look up the ladies’ skirts, comment on their underwear and genitalia. He “stuck his head right underneath their skirts,” according to Boyne.

“It was the most offensive scene I’ve ever been a part of,” Boyne told the Huffington Post.

Trump denied this claim.

“Mr. Trump never heard of this woman and would never do that,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Huffington Post.

6. Mariah Billado (1997).

Billado competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant and told BuzzFeed that Trump walked in on her and four other women while they were getting dressed.

According to Billado, he said something along the lines of “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.” She viewed his actions as more of a “pompous ‘I own this place’ rather than a perverted thing,” but she continued to say she wouldn't let her daughter compete in a pageant owned by Trump.

Trump denied the claim, and his campaign released a statement on the accusation.

“These accusations have no merit and have already been disproven by many other individuals who were present,” the statement said.

7. Cathy Heller (1997).

People

Heller said that Trump kissed her while at a Mother’s Day brunch in Mar-a-Lago.

“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” Heller claimed. She told The Guardian she leaned backward and turned her head in an attempt to avoid him.

“He kept me there for a little too long,” Heller said. “And then he just walked away.”

She said Trump allegedly was “pissed” and that he seemed to feel he was “entitled” to kiss her.

But Trump denied this.

“There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr. Trump’s resort,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller told The Guardian. “It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.”

8. Temple Taggart (1997).

NBC 

Taggart met Trump while representing Utah in the Miss USA pageant in 1997. She claims that when she was first introduced to him, he “kissed me directly on the lips.”

When she met him at the Trump Tower in Manhattan during a meeting, he allegedly kissed her on the mouth once again.

Trump denied Taggart’s claims. He told NBC News “I don’t even know who she is. She claims this took place in a public area. I never kissed her. I emphatically deny this ridiculous claim.”

9. Karena Virginia (1998).

Heavy

Virginia alleged that Trump grabbed her breast while at a U.S. Open tennis tournament according to the Washington Post.

She said that he started off by remarking on her appearance. Virginia claims Trump wrapped his arm around her and groped her breast while asking, “So you know who I am?”

Charles Virginia, her husband and a New York lawyer, said that she told him about the incident when they met. She told him “that she had been touched inappropriately and that she had been cowed by it.”

Trump campaign spokesperson Jessica Ditto denied Virginia’s claim, saying “Voters are tired of these circus-like antics and reject these fictional stories and the clear efforts to benefit Hillary Clinton.”

10. Bridget Sullivan (2000).

Sullivan represented New Hampshire in the Miss Teen USA pageant in 2000. She said Trump was a bit creepy and that “he’d hug you just a little low on your back,” and give you “a squeeze that your creepy uncle would.”

Sullivan also claims Trump would walk in the dressing rooms while the girls were changing.

“The time that he walked through the dressing rooms was really shocking. We were all naked,” Sullivan told Buzzfeed.

Hicks, Trump’s spokesperson, said this, along with other accusations against him, was fabricated.

11. Tasha Dixon (2001).

Dixon was 18 while she was competing in the 2001 Miss USA pageant representing Arizona.  She told CBS News that Trump would walk into the dressing rooms while the women were changing.

“He just came strolling right in,” Dixon claimed. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Other girls were naked.”

Dixon continued, saying there was nobody to complain to about Trump’s behavior because he owned the pageant.

Trump’s campaign denied Dixon’s allegation, along with those of other pageant contestants.

“These accusations have no merit and have already been disproven by many other individuals who were present,” Trump’s campaign wrote in a statement. “When you see questionable attacks like this magically put out there in the final month of a presidential campaign, you have to ask yourself what the political motivations are and why the media is pushing it.”

12. Melinda McGillivray (2003).

McGillivray alleged Trump groped her while meeting Ray Charles after a performance. She told the Palm Beach Post that she never reported the incident in Mar-a-Lago but that she vividly remembers it.

Her friend, Ken Davidoff, remembers McGillivray exclaiming, “Donald just grabbed my ass!”

“All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge,” McGillivray said. “I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly.”

The Palm Beach Post said it reached out to Trump for comment but didn't mention any response. Trump denied all of the allegations against him, though, in a vague statement during his campaign.

13. Rachel Crooks (2005).

CNN

Crooks worked in the Trump Tower in Manhattan at the time. She ran into Trump in an elevator and introduced herself, shaking his hand. Crooks claims he wouldn't let go of her hand and kissed her “directly on the lips.”

“It was so inappropriate,” Leeds said in an interview. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”

Trump denied this accusation, too. He told the Times, “None of this ever happened.”

14. Natasha Stoynoff (2005).

Stoynoff, a writer for PEOPLE met with Trump to interview him and his wife for their one year anniversary and was forcibly kissed by him before Melania arrived at Mar-a-Lago.

She claims Trump was giving her a tour of the mansion, and he mentioned there was a room she just had to see.

“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us,” Stoynoff said. “I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.”

She said he didn't let up until his butler informed him that Melania was arriving.

Trump later said to her, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?”

Trump denied these accusations on Twitter.

“Why didn't the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the ‘incident’ in her story. Because it did not happen!” 

The butler also denied the incident occurred.

“No, that never happened. Come on, that’s just bull crap,” said Trump’s former butler, Anthony Senecal.

15. Ninni Laaksonen (2006).

Us Weekly

Laaksonen told Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that Mr. Trump had grabbed her butt while they were backstage during the Late Show with David Letterman.

The Telegraph translated the article.

“Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt,” said Laaksonen. “He really grabbed my butt. I don’t think anybody saw it but I flinched and thought: ‘What is happening?’”

Though neither publication mentioned a denial from Trump, he made a statement denying all claims of sexual misconduct against him.

16. Jessica Drake (2006).

Drake met Trump at a charity golf tournament back in 2006. She recalled him kissing her without their consent.

"He grabbed each of us tightly, in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission," she told CNN.

Drake also said he flirted with her, and she got a call from one of Trump’s reps asking if she wanted to come to Trump’s room alone. When she declined, Trump got on the other end of the call and invited her to a party. He kept trying to get her to meet him but she insistently declined each time.

Trump denied the events, and his campaign released a statement that said, "This story is totally false and ridiculous.”

The statement went on to say the accuser was pushing a political agenda.

17. Samantha Holvey (2006).

Holvey, a Miss USA contestant at the time, claimed Trump inspected each pageant contestant in New York City.

"He would step in front of each girl and look you over from head to toe like we were just meat, we were just sexual objects, that we were not people," Holvey told CNN. "You know when a gross guy at the bar is checking you out? It's that feeling."

CNN left messages with the Trump campaign but said they were not returned, though Trump denied allegations by pageant contestants in a vague statement.

18. Summer Zervos (2007).

Zervos met Trump to talk about business opportunities in 2007, but he kissed her on the mouth as a greeting.

According to The Guardian, she also claims Trump groped her.

Zervos alleges that Trump greeted her with an “open-mouthed, aggressive kiss while grabbing her shoulder, and put his hand on her breast. Several times.” She then pushed his hand away in an effort to stop the inappropriate contact.

Trump claimed this never happened.

“I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on The Apprentice over the years,” he said in a statement. “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life.”

19. Cassandra Searles (2013).

Searles, another pageant contestant, met Trump while representing Washington for the 2013 Miss USA pageant.

She called him out in a Facebook post that said, “Miss USA Class of 2013: Do y’all remember that one time we had to do our on stage introductions, but this one guy treated us like cattle and made us do it again because we didn't look him in the eyes? Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property? Oh I forgot to mention that guy will be in the running to become the next President of the United States. I love the idea of having a misogynist as the President. ... #HeWillProbablySueMe #iHaveWorseStoriesSoComeAtMeBro #Drumpf.”

Searles later added to her post, claiming Trump groped her and tried to get her to come to his room.

“He probably doesn't want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room,” she said.

Trump did not specifically deny the accusation made by Searles but did deny that he ever sexually assaulted anyone during his campaign.
