Teen beauty pageant winners said Donald Trump walked in on them changing

Donald Trump reportedly walked in on teen beauty pageant contestants changing in 1997, despite the fact that some contestants were as young as 15, BuzzFeed News reports.

Mariah Billado, former Miss Vermont Teen USA, said Trump said something similar to: "Don't worry, ladies, I've seen it all before."

Owned Miss Universe, USA, Teen USA pageants

However, eleven other contestants BuzzFeed spoke to said they did not remember Trump being there, and several said they did not believe he could have been present.

None of the contestants accused Trump of saying anything explicit or touching anyone in the room.  Trump owned the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants from 1996 until last year.

Donald Trump

However, in a conversation with Howard Stern released Saturday by CNN, Trump found his ability to go anywhere during a pageant funny.

'Waltzing in'

In a separate instance, former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon said Trump came "waltzing in" on women changing into bikinis, CBS Los Angeles reported

Many on Twitter were disgusted.

"He abused his position"
