During the heat of the 2016 election, many women came forward to accuse Trump of sexual harassment. Allred has represented some of the accusers, and after the incriminating Access Hollywood video came out, she stated that multiple women got in touch with her to share their horrifying stories involving the President-elect. “Many women contacted me even prior to the release of the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape,” Allred said in October. “They just wanted me to know what Mr. Trump had done.”

Allred, who is notorious for taking on high-profile and controversial cases, has also criticized Trump in the past, referring to him as a “fourth-rate politician and a fifth-rate human”. Furthermore, she has never been afraid to take him on, legally and otherwise. “Please understand that you will not intimidate me,” she told Trump in a statement. “Others who are smarter, richer and more famous than you have tried and failed.”
