The Manhattan federal court jury declared to the Former United States President Donald Trump responsible for the rape of former journalist Elizabeth Jean Carroll in the 1990s. The ex-president, accused only by civil means, denied the accusations, although he was sentenced to pay compensation of 5 million dollars.

Carroll, 79, sued Trump last year for a rape that occurred in 1996 in the fitting rooms of a department store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

The woman also sued the tycoon for defamation after calling the revelation of the assault in a book he published in 2019 a “complete fraud”, “falsehood” and a “lie”.

The journalist acknowledged that that day in 1996 she felt “delighted” to be able to go shopping with the tycoon on Fifth Avenue in New York and even thought that it would be a great story to tell. “It was a fun New York scene,” she told Manhattan Federal Court.

“I love giving advice, and there was Donald Trump asking me for advice on how to buy a gift”said Carroll, who acknowledged that the former president, who at that time was known to be one of the great tycoons in the country, was kind and funny.
