Carroll claimed Trump raped her in the dressing room of New York department store Bergdorf Goodman in the 1990s in an excerpt from her book “What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal.” Trump has denied ever meeting Carroll despite a photo of the two of them that accompanied the excerpt in New York Magazine.
Trump vehemently denied the allegation in an exclusive interview with The Hill on Monday.
“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” the president said while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
Carroll and Cooper noted that Trump made similar remarks about Jessica Leeds, another of his accusers, in 2016, telling a rally audience “she would not be my first choice.” Trump also reportedly made similar remarks in private about adult film actress Stormy Daniels after she went public with her claims of an extramarital liaison with Trump.
More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, with some of the allegations going back decades and several emerging after a recording was released in October 2016 of him discussing groping women without their consent.
Trump has denied all the allegations.
