They take the photo anyway, and after the photo is snapped, Villa alleges that Lewandowski slapped her butt.
A female singer has accused a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump of repeatedly slapping her behind during a party at Washington's Trump International Hotel in November, according to U.S. website Politico. A friend introduced her to Corey Lewandowski, who served as Trump's campaign manager until he was sacked in June 2016, and the pair took a photo together.
"I'm wearing this silver suit and stretchy trousers, and after the photo, he smacks my ass really hard", Villa said.
"It was completely demeaning and shocking", she told Politico. "Half-joking I said "I can report you for sexual harassment". "I wanted to play it safe and avoid the drama", Villa said.

Villa then warned him that she could take legal action. For his part, Lewandowski did not respond to multiple requests for comment from Politico. Video showed him grabbing Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields by the arm during a March 2016 news conference in Florida. Charges against Lewandowski were dropped, but the incident was caught on tape. "He tweeted: "@MichelleFields you are totally delusional.
While Lewandowski was sacked by the Trump campaign well over a year ago, his name has recently been floated for a staff position in the West Wing, as other presidential aides are planning their exits. "It was shocking and gross".
After the second slap, Villa said, "Corey laughed in my face and ran away", she said. It was only after the eyewitness reported it to Politico that Villa agreed to share her account of it.
Villa also added that though at first, she was averse to the idea of coming forward with her story, however, after seeing several women come forward in the past few months against sexual harassment from men in media, entertainment, politics and other industries motivated her to share her side of the story.
