WARWICK NEW YORK- JUNE 21,2019 E. Jean Carroll at her home in Warwick NY

"I'll say it with great respect: No. 1, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened", Trump told The Hill in an interview at the White House.

The president said in an interview with The Hill on Monday that writer E. Jean Carroll is "totally lying". And I probably was, at that moment, in that five minutes, the most attractive woman in Bergdorf's. I don't know anything about her. "She is - it's just a awful thing that people can make statements like that".

The fitting room episode took place in late 1995 or early 1996, according to Carroll, who said Monday that Trump asked her to model lingerie that he was looking to purchase.

He also repeated his claim that he did not know of Carroll, despite the existence of a photo of them together.

"It was a fight", she said. "I'm so glad I am not his type". He said he was there to "buy a present" for "a girl" and picked out see-through bodysuit.

Feeling cut off, Carroll peered at the CNN host and said, 'You're fascinating to talk to'.

Ultra-rich seeking wealth tax to remedy inequality
Some of those signing the letter have already expressed concerns about rising inequality. Almost 20 per cent of the nation's wealth belongs to the country's richest people.

Then jokingly, they each suggested that the other should try it on. She claims he shoved her against the wall, pulled down her tights and allegedly forced "his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway - or completely, I'm not certain - inside me". "And it was against my will and it hurt".

Ms Carroll never went to the police because, she said, she was afraid of repercussions. "Totally lying. I don't know anything about her", he said.

When Cooper told Carroll "I think most people think of rape as a violent assault" she responded saying, "I think most people think of rape as being sexy". B, I was stupid. I'm disgusted someone could think I'd do such a thing. I thought of it as a violent incident.

On Friday, New York published an excerpt from the author's forthcoming book, What Do We Need Men For? Explaining why she didn't come forward until now, Carroll wrote about the retribution and dismissal she expected to receive and called herself "a coward". "I should never have done it".

At least 22 women have accused Trump of assault or sexual misconduct.
