Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of felony sex crime and rape last month. It was a victory for sexual assault survivors everywhere to see such a powerful man finally brought to justice.

The decision, surprisingly, was praised by President Donald Trump who called it a “victory for women,” but Trump seems to have forgotten how many women have accused him of the same exact thing that is sending Weinstein in prison. In fact, the President has so many accusations against him, many publications keep running lists so they can add to them as more women come forward.

Here are 15 of the women who have accused the President of misconduct:

1. Ivana Trump

His ex-wife accused him of rape in 1989.

Harry Hurt III wrote about this accusation in a 1993 book about Trump saying “It is a violent assault.”

She later said that she didn’t want to accuse Trump of rape ‘in a literal or criminal sense,” but still said she felt violated when it happened.

2. Jessica Leeds

Leeds told the New York Times that Trump groped her on an airplane in the 1970s. She discussed it again with ABC, where she stated the urgency of Congress investigating the allegations.

Trump referenced and negated Leeds’ accusation at a press conference later that year saying, “I had a woman sitting in an airplane and I attacked her while people were coming onto the plane.”

3. Kristen Anderson

Jill says she had two uncomfortable encounters with Trump, one where he tried putting his hand in between her legs at a dinner she was at with her then-boyfriend, and another where he tried to kiss her when she visited his Florida Mar-a-Lago estate.

Her lawsuit discusses the details, but lately, she says she does not want to talk about Trump.

Heller told the Guardian that she was at Mar-a-largo in the 1990s and was going to shake hands with Trump but he grabbed her and tried to kiss her lips despite her pulling away.

She added that the incident made her feel “angry and shaken,” and told People magazine that she doesn’t think “[Trump] can control himself.”

Former Miss Utah in the 1997 Miss USA contest  said Trump “kissed her on the lips.” It doesn’t seem any better than Trump owned the pageant at the time.

She first spoke out about this in 2016 to the New York Times.

Former Miss Washington 2013 wrote on Facebook in 2016 about how, at the Miss USA pageant, Trump lined up the models and treated them “like cattle,” as he observed them from head to toe.

Why isn’t anything being done?

Whether it’s one the many cases where a woman was trying to simply shake Trumps hand but was instead inappropriately grabbed, or being treated as objects at a beauty pageant, it seems Trump has tried to pull the same unsubtle attempt at kissing or touching women, even if it’s in a public area.

Despite all these women coming forward,  Trump has still not properly addressed them and seems to push them to the side, either calling them “ridiculous” or dismissing the women’s accusations by saying things like “they aren’t his type” or they aren’t attractive enough to be assaulted.

Hard to believe Trump would have the nerve to say Harvey Weinstein’s sentence was a “victory for women”.
