Paris Hilton: Trump Sex Assault Allegations Are False Promo Image

Since President Donald Trump burst onto the political scene and won the 2016 election, Paris Hilton has remained fairly quiet about her longtime family friend, but in a new interview she spoke her mind about him, defended him against sexual assault allegations and even revealed whether or not she voted for him.

Of the 15 women who said that Trump made aggressive sexual advances toward them or otherwise sexually assaulted them, the heiress told Marie Claire that she thought "they are just trying to get attention and get fame" and don't have any credibility.

Indeed, Hilton dismissed some of the president's more controversial comments about women -- such as the time when he said on a hot mic that he can "grab [women] by the p***y" if he wants -- as normal banter that occurs in certain environments.

"I've heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I'm always around guys, and I listen to them speak," the 36-year-old businesswoman explained.

Hilton said she has known Trump since she was "a little girl" and has always found him to be "so nice, respectful and sweet."

She said that he is "an incredible businessman" whom the nation will remember as a good president, but she didn't vote for him -- or anyone else for that matter.

"I love the people [in Mexico], and I don't think that they should be talked about like that at all," Hilton, who was in Mexico for the interview, said of Trump's campaign announcement speech in which he said that many Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals.

Hilton has typically shied away from discussing the election, instead remaining mum on the issue.

"My mother told me to never talk about politics or money," Hilton told a TMZ reporter when asked on Election Day if she voted for him.

She did say that she cast a ballot before Nov. 8 and was hoping that "the best person wins."

However, on Nov. 17, 2016, she gave Australia's "The Project" a more definitive answer.

"I've known him since [I was] a little girl, so yes," she said, when asked if she voted for Trump, according to Us Weekly.

Trump has spoken positively about her ability to thrive in the business world, and she said that she always welcomes comparisons to him in that regard.

"That's very flattering to hear, something like that, about the President of the United States," she added.
