'She's not my type': Trump again denies E. Jean Carroll's sexual misconduct allegation  4 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

WASHINGTON – Saying that "she's not my type," President Donald Trump again denied Monday that he forced himself onto longtime advice columnist E. Jean Carroll.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type," he said during an interview with The Hill. "Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” 

Since Carroll came forward Friday with an accusation that Trump sexually assaulted her over 20 years ago, the president has repeatedly denied it, calling her a liar and saying the two have never even met.

Shortly after the president's latest comments, Carroll responded.

"I love that I'm not his type," she said during an interview on CNN. She noted she only mentioned Trump by name once in her forthcoming book, "What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal," which details the allegation, and that the book is not about him.

Previously, Trump had a similar response when another woman accused him of sexual misconduct.

In October 2016, Jessica Leeds accused Trump of putting his hand up her skirt on an airplane in the early 1980s. Days after she came forward, Trump said during a rally that Leeds was not physically attractive enough for him.

"Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you," he said.

Carroll wrote in her book that Trump forced himself on her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s. New York Magazine published an excerpt from the book, which included a photo of Carroll wearing the coat dress she said she wore the day of the alleged attack more than two decades ago.

Carroll wrote in the excerpt that she ran into Trump while shopping at the elegant New York City department store. She said that he stopped her and greeted her as "that advice lady," and she responded by greeting him as "that real-estate tycoon."

He asked for her help to buy a present for a "girl," Carroll wrote. She pointed out handbags and hats, but Trump pointed out lingerie and asked Carroll to try on a piece, she said. Once inside the dressing room, Carroll claimed, Trump forced himself on her.

"The moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly, and puts his mouth against my lips," Carroll wrote. "He holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights."

Carroll claimed Trump "opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway – or completely, I’m not certain – inside me." The episode lasted no longer than three minutes, Carroll said. It was the last time she had sex, she wrote.

The incident was not reported to the police, and Carroll said she told only two close friends, whose names were not made public in the story. One told her to go to the police. The other told her to forget about it, she wrote.

At least 15 other women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. The president has denied all allegations.

On Friday, the president said in a statement released by the White House that the advice columnist was trying to just sell books.

Monday, Trump also said that Carroll was "totally lying" about her allegation.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said Monday. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”
