A New York-based advice columnist claims Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a dressing room at a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s, according to a first-person account published Friday by NY magazine.

In a cover story for NY magazine, an excerpt from her book "What Do We Need Men For?"

When they reached the dressing room, Carroll alleges that Trump lunged at her and over the next three minutes sexually assaulted her.

She told two friends about the attack at the time, and NY verified her claim with both friends, who are journalists, but the White House denied Carroll's accusations. Carroll made the lurid and detailed accusation in New York Magazine this morning.

In a statement, Trump called the accusation "fake news" and said there was no evidence of the encounter, adding: "I've never met this person in my life".

She is not the first to accuse Trump of harassment or assault; almost two dozen other women did so during his presidential campaign. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice has claimed that Trump kissed her "aggressively" without her consent and touched her breast while "thrusting his genitals" toward her.

Carroll has said that the rape happened in a Bergdorf Goodman changing room, in NY, in the mid 1990s.

Regarding the "story" by E. Jean Carroll, claiming she once encountered me at Bergdorf Goodman 23 years ago.

A spokesman for Moonves referred the The Post to a statement the former CBS chief gave NY magazine, in which he "emphatically denies" the episode. When Carroll asked how old the woman was, she said Trump responded by asking her age. Trump was married to Marla Maples at the time.

"But it's your size", I say, laughing and trying to slap him back with one of the boxes on the counter. In addition to her upcoming book (to be released on July 2), Carroll wrote the following works: Female Difficulties: Sorority Sisters, Rodeo Queens, Frigid Women, Smut Stars, and Other Modern Girls, A Dog in Heat Is a Hot Dog and Other Rules to Live By, Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson and Mr.

Carroll said that after Trump suggested a purchase of lingerie or underwear, he grabbed a bodysuit and urged Carroll to try it on. "I said "you put it on" and he said "no, no you'll look good in this". They begin on the main floor looking at hats, and after some banter over a fur hat Trump sees the escalator and says, "lingerie!" or "underwear!"

Carroll asks herself the question that many people will now ask: why didn't she come forward with these details earlier? In a statement to New York Magazine, the White House said: "This is a completely false and unrealistic story surfacing 25 years after allegedly taking place and was created simply to make the President look bad". The world should know what's really going on. "All should condemn false accusations and any actual assault in the strongest possible terms".

Carroll claims that she fought off Trump before she was able to flee from the dressing room and out of the store.
