She’s not my type - Trump denies raping writer E.Jean Carroll

President Trump said Monday that writer E. Jean Carroll was “totally lying” when she recently accused him of raping her during an encounter in a New York department store in the mid-1990s.

In an exclusive interview with The Hill, the president vehemently denied the allegations just hours after Carroll detailed the alleged incident during a cable news interview.

“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 said on CNN that Trump “just went at it” when he allegedly cornered her in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman, adding that “he pulled down my tights, and it was a fight.”

She first came forward with her allegations on Friday. Trump denied the allegations in a statement that day and then again while speaking with reporters on Saturday.

When asked if Carroll was lying, Trump on Monday repeated his assertion that he had never met her.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said. “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.”

“I love that I’m not his type,” Carroll said in an interview on CNN, responding to Trump’s comments shortly after they were published.

She pointed out that Trump has denied all the accusations from women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

“He denies, he turns it around, he threatens and he attacks.”

Carroll’s account of the alleged incident was detailed in an excerpt of her forthcoming book published Friday afternoon in New York Magazine.
