Late Friday night, the Trump campaign released a statement in which a cousin of Zervos said he was "shocked and bewildered" by her account.

Trump himself has made NYT the centerpiece of his attack against the media after the newspaper has relentless ly pursued claims of promiscuous and aggressive sexual behaviour from Trump that some commentators have said amounts to sexual assault.

He said Slim, as a donor to the Clinton Foundation charity and who holds a 17.35 percent stake in the Times, has an interest in helping Clinton's White House campaign.
