In a released interrogation video related to Donald Trump's civil rape trial, the former US President has defended previous vulgar statements. It is about a survey published on Friday by Trump from October, which was conducted by plaintiff Jean Carroll's lawyer, Roberta Kaplan.
When asked about a statement that a woman who had accused him of sexual assault was not "his first choice," Trump replied to Kaplan, "You wouldn't be my choice either, to be honest. I hope you're not offended. I wouldn't be." case interested in you."
Carroll accuses Trump of raping her in a New York City department store in the mid-1990s. Trump, who was not yet active as a politician but as a real estate entrepreneur, always rejected the allegations - once with the words that she was not his type. The criminal allegations are statute-barred, but under civil law Carroll was free to file a lawsuit. She demands compensation. The pleadings in the case are expected next week. In the now-released video, Trump's attorney Kaplan also calls "a political agent" and "a disgrace." Regarding Carroll, he said that he didn't know them and knew nothing about "these crazy people".
Trump was also approached by the attorney about a now-famous video, captured on the sidelines of a 2005 TV show, of him telling another man that as a celebrity, you could touch women's genitals if you wanted to. Trump defended his words: "If you look at the last million years, that's probably largely true, not always, but largely true. Unfortunately - or fortunately".
