Former Fox News anchor said Trump tried to kiss her and joked about it later

A former Fox News anchor says that she should have reacted differently to Donald Trump's behavior more than a decade ago, before he was president.

What does she say Trump did?

Juliet Huddy says that Trump took her out to dinner and tried to kiss her afterward. It's unclear if Trump was married to Melania at the time since Huddy is unsure of the date of the interaction.

“He took me for lunch at Trump Tower, just us two," she explained. "He said goodbye to me in an elevator while his security guy was there, rather than kiss me on the cheek he leaned in to kiss me on the lips. I wasn’t offended, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my god’.”

“I was surprised that he went for the lips. But I didn’t feel threatened," she continued, "he took me out to lunch to talk about maybe me doing something with ‘The Apprentice.’ He used to watch ‘Fox & Friends,’ the show I was hosting on the weekend. Whatever, everything was fine. It was a weird moment. He never tried anything after that, and I was never alone with him.”

Says she should have resisted him more

“Now I have matured I think I would say, ‘Woah, no,’ but at the time I was younger and I was a little shocked,” Huddy said. “I thought maybe he didn’t mean to do it, but I was kind of making excuses.”

Trump jokes about it later.

Huddy says that Trump referred to the incident in a joking way later on her show. “I hit on her but she blew me off," he said, according to Huddy.

"F--- you"

Huddy says she was disappointed with how Trump reacted to the news that Fox News hosts had been accused of sexual harassment.

“When all the stuff came out about Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump was one of the people who said, ‘I don’t believe this happened and I don’t believe he did it,’” Huddy explained. “I was actually very disappointed in Trump, I thought, ‘You know what, f--- you.’”

Huddy later accused Bill O'Reilly of sexual harassment and received a settlement over it.

Here's video of Megyn Kelly interviewing Huddy about sexual harassment:
