Some of the women who accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct during the 2016 presidential election campaign are calling for justice.

A number of men in Hollywood and other industries, such as film producer Harvey Weinstein, have lost their jobs following allegations of sexual assault, according to People.

Trump was accused of inappropriately touching Jessica Leeds during a flight in the 1980s.

"Things just seem to fall off of Trump, I'm extremely disappointed," she told People.

People's Natasha Stoynoff alleged in October 2016 that Trump sexually assaulted her while she was on an assignment at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Trump allegedly pushed her up against a wall and stuck his tongue down her throat.

"I feel this issue has been 'on hold' all year, but not forgotten," stated Stoynoff. "It's been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker. But now the heat's on and it's going to boil and the lid is going to blast off."

She added: "For Trump and his press secretary to continue to push the false agenda that the women are liars and continue to so cavalierly defame private citizens is outrageous and improper."

Cathy Heller also alleged Trump sexually assaulted her at Mar-a-Lago in 1997.

"I was angry and shaken," Heller said, according to BuzzFeed. "He was pissed. He couldn't believe a woman would pass up the opportunity."

Another accuser was Jill Harth, who met Trump in 1992 to discuss a business venture. She said Trump's comments were lewd from the outset and things escalated. In 1997, Harth filed a lawsuit alleging that Trump groped her and raped her. Trump and Harth dated in 1998, and she abandoned her lawsuit as part of a later deal.

"It's disturbing that many of Trump's diehard supporters are so stubborn," said Mindy McGillivray, who accused Trump of assaulting her in 2003, People reported. "That they can't seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore."

Moore, the Republican candidate for the Senate in Alabama, has been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women.

A total of 16 women have made allegations that Trump has committed some form of sexual assault.

Following the latest allegations against prominent figures, Trump said that the accusations first raised by women against him in 2016 were "totally fake news. It's just fake. It's fake. It's made-up stuff, and it's disgraceful," People reported.

In October, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also dismissed the allegations, saying that the official White House position is that all of the women making accusations against Trump were lying, HuffPost reported.
