Donald Trump denied having ever met E. Jean Carroll before he proceeded to say that “she actually loved it” implying that she would enjoy being sexually assaulted

Donald Trump angrily hurled insults and threatened to sue a woman who accused him of raping her in a dressing room in the 1990s, a court has revealed.

In excerpts of a videotaped testimony unsealed Friday, Trump appears to call writer E. Jean Carroll “mentally sick” and denies ever meeting her, while later proceeding to say that “she actually loved it”, implying that she enjoys being assaulted.

Carroll, a journalist and columnist, filed two lawsuits against Trump alleging defamation and rape, with a trial planned for April.

Portions of Trump’s 5 1/2-hour depositions that took place in October were released publicly after a federal judge rejected his lawyers’ request that it remained sealed.

The excerpts reveal a contentious battle between Trump and Roberta Kaplan, a lawyer for Carroll, who questioned him as Trump called the former longtime Elle magazine columnist the perpetrator of “a complete scam” in which she described the rape as she “was promoting a really crummy book”.

According to the transcript, Trump said: “She said that I did something to her that never took place. There was no anything. I know nothing about this nut job.

“I will sue her after this is over, and that’s the thing I really look forward to doing. And I’ll sue you too.”

Carroll’s rape by Trump allegedly took place in the mid-1990s in a dressing room of an upscale Manhattan department store.

The writer alleged she was attacked by him after they had a chance meeting in the store and she agreed to help him pick out lingerie for a friend.

Trump said he knew it wasn’t “politically correct” to say “she’s not my type” when he responded to claims shortly after Carroll’s 2019 book was published.

“But I’ll say it anyway,” he said. “She’s accusing me of rape, a woman that I have no idea who she is. It came out of the blue. She’s accusing me of raping her, the worst thing you can do, the worst charge.”
