He appeared to be referring to Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist in Trump Tower and now a candidate for the OH state legislature. As Saslow notes, Crooks's description also fits with Trump's own words, as recorded on the Access Hollywood tape released in October 2016: "You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women".
She said she was a 22-year-old receptionist at Trump Tower in NY in 2005 when Trump kissed her repeatedly on the cheeks and then "directly on the mouth" during an introductory conversation.
"He was waiting for the elevator outside our office when I got up the nerve to introduce myself", she is quoted in the Post as saying. She claims he asked whether she wanted to be a model, before kissing her for two whole minutes. "He wouldn't let go of my hand, and then he went right in and started kissing me on the lips", she recounted in a meeting attended by TheWP. "Her self-confidence was absolutely rocked", Hackenburg says.
She said the incident lasted around two minutes.
Trump himself tweeted that "nothing ever happened with any of these women".

Trump has repeatedly denied the accusations against him.
She sent another email to her sister on the same day, which read: "I must just appear to be some dumb girl that he can take advantage of...ugh!"
"Ah yes, the Donald kiss...very creepy man, let me tell you!" she messaged another relative a couple days later.
The tweet is the latest attempt by Trump to dismiss the stories of at least 15 women who have come forward with a series of accusation against him, ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.
"The people of this country, at a decisive election, supported President Trump", Sanders said, "and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process". Only @FoxNews so reported...doesn't fit the Mainstream Media narrative. "Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign", he said in October 2016.
