E Jean Carroll Considers Suing Trump Over His Comments During CNN’s Town Hall | donald trump

Writer E Jean Carroll is considering suing Donald Trump again for defamation after the former US president made disparaging comments about her during a CNN televised town hall just a day after he was found liable in a civil case for sexually assaulting her.

“Everything is on the table, obviously, and we have to seriously consider it,” said Carroll’s attorney, Roberta Kaplan. said The New York Times about the prospect of a defamation lawsuit. “We have to weigh the various pros and cons and will probably make a decision in the next few days.”

On Tuesday, a New York jury ruled that Trump had sexually assaulted the advice columnist in the fitting room of an upscale New York department store 27 years ago. He also awarded about $5 million in compensatory and punitive damages: about $2 million on the sexual assault charge and about $3 million for defamation, for calling her a liar.

But during Wednesday night’s CNN event in New Hampshire, which drew widespread condemnation of the American broadcaster, Trump repeatedly insulted and demeaned Carroll and her experiences.

Trump called his account of a sexual assault “untrue” and a “made up story” and referred to it as a “hanky panky.”

Carroll told the Times that the comments had been upsetting when he read a transcript of them. “It’s just stupid, it’s disgusting, vile, disgusting, it hurts people,” she told the newspaper.

She added: “I am upset on behalf of young men in America. They can’t listen to this nonsense and outdated view of women, which is a caveman view.”
