The former president of the United States is being sued by American journalist Jean Carroll for allegedly raping her in the middle of the 1990s in a dressing room at a Manhattan department store.
On the second day of a federal violence and defamation civil complaint the former Elle magazine columnist brought against Mr. Trump at a Manhattan federal court in New York over a rape accusation that occurred in either 1995 or 1996, Ms. Carroll, 79, revealed this while testifying.
When asked why she was in court on Wednesday, Ms. Carrol said, “I am here because Donald Trump raped me and when I wrote about it, he said it didn’t happen. She said, “He lied and ruined my reputation, and I’m here to try to get my life back.”
She responded, “I like them!” when asked, “How do you feel about men?”, which led to a lighthearted environment with at least one male juror evoking a laugh.
According to Ms. Carroll, who described the meeting with Mr. Trump, “He stepped through the door and he said, “Hey, you are that advice lady.”
Hey, you’re that real estate tycoon, Ms. Carroll retorted.
“I love to give advice, and here was Donald Trump asking me for advice about buying a present,” she continued to say in court. For me, it was a fantastic possibility.
Ms. Carroll claimed that when Mr. Trump shut the door, they went to the lingerie section where the former president found a body suit and told her to put it on. She refused, and that is where the whole incident started.
Ms. Carroll added, “I was extremely perplexed and suddenly realized that what I thought was happening was not happening.” “I wanted to avoid creating a scene. I was nearly too terrified to decide whether or not I was afraid.
She added, “His fingers went into my vagina, which was extremely painful.”
Then, she alleged Mr Trump inserted his penis.
Ms Carroll told the jury she hadn’t had sex in over a year.
In the meantime, Mr. Trump has denied any misconduct in the issue. In an October 2020 article on his Truth Social site, the ex-president dismissed Ms Carroll’s assertions as a “hoax” and “complete scam.”
Mr Trump had previously stated that Ms Carroll was “not my type!”
