Samantha Cohen, the daughter of President Donald Trump's former lawyer, says she was taken aback by his behavior toward her father during a 2012 incident in which her father says Trump leered at her.

Washington (CNN)Samantha Cohen, the daughter of President Donald Trump's former lawyer, says she was taken aback by his behavior toward her father during a 2012 incident in which her father says Trump leered at her.

Michael Cohen, who spent time in prison earlier this year for fraud and tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations, detailed the allegation in his recently released book, according to Vanity Fair, writing that in 2012, he and Trump were chatting at Trump's property in Bedminster, New Jersey, when Trump noticed Samantha Cohen approaching them, unaware that she was his lawyer's daughter.

'Look at that piece of a--,' Cohen recalls Trump saying, as he whistled and pointed," according to Vanity Fair.

"'I would love some of that. ' It so happened that Trump was referring to Cohen's then 15-year-old daughter, Samantha. "

'When did she get so hot?' When Samantha reached her dad, Trump asked her for a kiss on the cheek, before inquiring, 'When did you get such a beautiful figure?' and warning her that in a few years, he would be dating one of her friends," the magazine reported.

Asked about the alleged incident by CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day" on Monday, Samantha Cohen said it's "a little bit less clear to me" because she's become "desensitized to men making these kinds of comments," adding that she remembered "insulting" comments Trump made toward her father during the episode.

Samantha Cohen said the experience changed her impression of Trump and made her think that "maybe Trump doesn't treat my father so well. "

Asked by Camerota if she ever got the impression that Trump was hitting on her, Samantha Cohen said she did not, but that she believed he was "interested in younger women. "
