Trump then relayed his version of Carroll’s story. “I never met this woman. I never saw this woman. This woman said I met her at the front door of Bergdorf Goodman, which I rarely go into other than for a couple of charities. I met her in the front door. She was about 60 years old. This is like 22, 23 years ago,” he said.

“I met her in the front door of Bergdorf Goodman. I was immediately attracted to her, and she was immediately attracted to me. And we had this great chemistry. We’re walking into a crowded department store. We had this great chemistry. And a few minutes later, we end up in a room, a dressing room of Bergdorf Goodman, right near the cash register,” he said.“And then she found out that there were locks in the door. She said, ‘I found one that was open.’ She found one — she learned this at trial. She found one that was open,” he said. Trump then gave his opinion of the story.
“What kind of a woman meets somebody and brings them up and within minutes, you’re playing hanky-panky in a dressing room, OK?” he said.
Carroll lashed out at Trump for his comments, according to The New York Times. “It’s just stupid, it’s just disgusting, vile, foul, it wounds people,” she said, adding that she had been “insulted by better people.” Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, said Carroll may file another defamation lawsuit over Trump’s town hall comments.
