Is this sexual harassment?

I was assisting a foreigner for language barrier for a month, and we and other business partners had a get-together with drink.

When the foreigner had a lot of alcohol, he put his hand on my waist and then thigh.

He called me sexy and edible, but also that I'm like his big sister and he will protect me from other people.

And he also said that he's always ready to go home when I feel like it. And he did.

During the get-together, he showed us a hand gesture of tickling another's palm with his fingers, saying that this is how he connects with his girl students. Is this also inapproriate?

I'm in my late 20s (single. Asian) and he's in his early 50s (married for 20 years. American)

Was he not respecting and looking down on me?

Married for 20 years. Old enough to be your father. Calls you sexy and edible. And tickles his female students.

Was this Donald trump? Sounds like a sleazy bastard.

It's sexual harassment I'd say. Completely inappropriate.

This man is a pig. Stay the hell away from him and do not hesitate to tell him to keep his hands off of you. NEVER let anyone touch you in a way that makes you uncomfortable.

Its harassment. He's a prick.

If he's also doing it to students, you need to report what he told you about the "tickling" to one of your business directors.

He's probably harassing his female students as well.
