Donald Trump on Monday mocked Jessica Drake — an adult film actress and the latest woman to accuse him of sexual assault — saying in a sarcastic tone that he was "sure she's never been grabbed before."

"One said, 'He grabbed me on the arm.' And she's a porn star. You know, this one that came out recently, 'He grabbed me and he grabbed me on the arm.' Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before," Trump said in an interview on a local New Hampshire radio station, according to CNN.

Drake came forward on Saturday to accuse Trump of kissing her without her permission in 2006. Drake also alleged that Trump later offered her money to go to his suite and accompany him to a party.

Trump had already denied Drake's story after she came forward with her allegations. 

But his Monday comments took it a step further, suggesting a porn actress wasn't worthy of being believed when it came to accusations of sexual assault and improper behavior. 

Trump is not the only person to cast doubt on Drake's story because of her career in the adult film industry.

Fox News anchor Brit Hume also questioned whether a "woman who has sex on camera for $" had a right to say Trump's behavior was unacceptable.
