Trump on rape accuser: 'She's not my type'

The US President Donald Trump on Monday yet again smartly denied allegations by a magazine advice editorialist that he sexually molested her in the Nineties in a new york retail store

dressing room, adding: "She's not my type."

Trump created the comment in an interview with the Hill, a political news outlet, that touched on the allegations from E.

Jean Carroll, who says in her new book that the alleged rape occurred in the mid-1990s.

"I'll say it with great respect: number one, she's not my type.

Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?

" Trump aforesaid in the interview, which was conducted in the Oval Office.

The president further added that Carroll was "totally lying" when she made her claims.

"I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her," he said.

Carroll's account, revealed last week in an excerpt of her new book that was published by New York magazine, makes her at least the 16th woman to have accused Trump of sexual misconduct before he became president.

She said that in a chance encounter at the Bergdorf Goodman store in Manhattan, Trump -- then a real estate developer -- asked her for advice on buying lingerie for an unnamed woman.

Then jokingly, they each suggested that the other should try it on.

"The moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly, and puts his mouth against my lips," wrote Carroll,

who works for Elle magazine.

Pinning her against the wall, Carroll says, Trump proceeded to drag down her tights, unfasten his pants and penetrate her -- all whereas himself totally dressed -- till she finally

managed to push him out and run from the room.

On Monday, Carroll told CNN that he "just went at it" when he trapped her.

"It was a fight," she said.

"With all the fifteen ladies or sixteen who have stepped forward, it is the same.

He denies it. He turns it around. He attacks. And he threatens."

Carroll never visited the police because, she said, she was fearful of repercussions.
