Reacting to a recent statement from President Trump, E. Jean Carroll, the writer who accused the president of raping her in the 1990s, said she was “so glad” to find out she was not Mr. Trump’s “type.”

In an exclusive interview with The Hill on Monday, Mr. Trump said Ms. Carroll was “totally lying,” adding: “I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened.”

This was welcome news to Ms. Carroll.

“I love that. I am so glad I’m not his type. I’m so glad. This was 20 years and I probably was at that moment — in that five minutes — the most attractive woman in Bergdorfs,” she said to CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Ms. Carroll reacted to a previous comment Mr. Trump made about an accuser during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said I don’t think so … She would not be my first choice, that I can tell you,” the president said.

Ms. Carroll added Mr. Trump “also called Miss Universe fat — Miss Piggy, I think he called her.”

“He’s denied all 15 women who have come forward. He denies. He turns it around. He threatens, and he attacks,” she said.

Mr. Trump previously denied Ms. Carroll’s allegations, said he had never met her and disparaged her looks.

Ms. Carroll’s account of her alleged assault is detailed in her new book “What do We Need Men For?”
