President Donald Trump fired back at a woman who accused him of sexual assault saying “she’s not my type” and insisting the incident “never happened.”
The accusation is the latest in a string of allegations against the president dating back decades, all of which he has denied.
In response, E. Jean Carroll, who made the latest accusation, could only laugh.
The writer, who said Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the mid-1990s, told Anderson Cooper in an interview Monday night: “I love that. I am so glad I’m not his type. I’m so glad.”
Earlier in the day, the president, who also said Carroll was “totally lying” that he sexually assaulted her, told The Hill during an interview in the Oval Office: “I’ll say it with great respect: No. 1, she’s not my type. No. 2, it never happened. It never happened, OK?”
Carroll said the president’s response felt quite similar to others when confronted by other women.
“He’s denied all 15 women who have come forward. He denies. He turns it around. He threatens, and he attacks,” Carroll said on CNN.
