In his deposition Trump implies Carroll loved being sexually assaulted by him

Trump replied. “I believe she said rape was sexy.”

Donald Trump hasn’t been mounting much of a defense in the defamation and battery case E. Jean Carroll brought against the former president. In fact, his lawyers told the court earlier this week they wouldn’t be presenting any defense at all, and that Trump would not be appearing at the trail, during which Carroll has already given powerful testimony about Trump allegedly raping her in a department store dressing room nearly 30 years ago.

Trump did, however, deliver a deposition. The former president’s testimony has already been made public, but the court on Friday released video of his responses to questions from Carroll’s lawyers.


The video, which lasts 48 minutes, depicts a perturbed Trump dismissing Carroll and her allegations against him. In one clip, he implies Carroll loved being sexually assaulted by him, misrepresenting comments she made to Anderson Cooper during a 2019 interview.

“Did she say in that interview that she loved being sexually assaulted by you?” Trump is asked.

“Well, she said something to that effect,” Trump replied. “I believe she said rape was sexy.”


Trump has denied he raped Carroll, claiming on multiple occasions that she is not his “type.” Meanwhile, he mistook Carroll for his second wife, Marla Maples.
