An advice columnist for Elle fashion magazine said Friday that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the dressing room of a NY department store more than two decades ago, an accusation swiftly denied by the USA president.

Trump said in a statement Friday evening that her account was false.

Trump says in his statement on Carroll's allegations, "I've never met this person in my life". It should be sold in the fiction section,"the president wrote".

Trump would have been married to Marla Maples at this time, and Carroll is now the 16th woman to accuse the president of sexual misconduct. In a statement to NY magazine, Moonves said he "emphatically denies" the incident occurred.

"What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal" publishes July 2, 2019.

Ms Carroll posed in the same outfit for the cover of this week's NY, next to the headline: "This is what I was wearing 23 years ago when Donald Trump attacked me in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room".

Adidas fails to extend three-stripe trademark in the EU
On 19 June 2019, the EU General decided a case about the validity of Adidas' EU trade mark registration for three stripes. Adidas AG lost a European Union court fight for broader trademark protection of its iconic three-stripe logo.

Carroll said she "finally get (s) a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out of the dressing room". Carroll said she deflected the offer and told him to try it on instead. She does not name him but there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that the man is Donald Trump.

Carroll says Trump asked her to help him pick out a gift "for a girl".

She says Mr Trump knew she was a TV agony aunt and the two joked around, encouraging each other to try on some lingerie. Trump allegedly asked Carroll to try some on.

Around the time of the alleged assault, President Trump's first ex-wife, Ivana Trump, had claimed that he violated her during their marriage.

Carroll claims that she then spent three minutes fighting off Trump before she was able to flee from the dressing room and out of the store.

NY magazine claims to have verified her account with two friends who were told about the incident shortly after it occurred.

Carroll never went to the police because, she said, she was afraid of repercussions. Carroll's descriptions of her encounter with Trump are the most explosive allegations in the book and will likely reignite the discussion over the president's treatment of women and the assault allegations that have been raised against him. She's been doing that column for 26 years and in her new book, titled What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal, she writes that during that time, "no matter what problems are driving women insane - their careers, wardrobes, love affairs, children, orgasms, finances - there comes a line in nearly every letter when the cause of the correspondent's quagmire is revealed". She writes that the two kept tossing the bodysuit back and forth to each other in what at the time seemed like playful banter. When the tape became public weeks before the November 2016 general election, Trump said he never acted in any of the ways described on the tape, and said it was just "locker-room talk". Trump said he would kiss women and grab their genitals without consent because he was "attracted" to them like a "magnet". And when you're a star, they let you do it.
