Trump keeps repeating the same lies, including the alleged rape at Bergdorf Goodman.
THE HILL: I do want to ask you real quickly about Jean Carroll because she was on television all morning repeating her allegations. Is it your position that she’s lying about what happened?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her. I see that I had a picture with her coat on where I was leaving and you know, with the back of my; I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is… it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that. Think of it. Any department store that’s crowded. Okay? Bergdorf Goodman’s a crowded store. And I’ve never been up that I remember ever on that floor. They sell women’s dresses on that floor. Okay? But Bergdorf Goodman is..and this is, like, twenty-five years ago, but this store is packed. It’s on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. And she made this charge up. And by the way, she’s made it up about , or she’s said it about other people too. I’m not the only one. She said it about other people. I’ll say it with great respect, number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened. Okay? I hope you can be strong. But I think it’s a crazy thing when, when people are allowed to make false accusations like that. I really do. And, and for twenty-five years she never said anything. She never said for twenty-five years. And then she said, where are the sales girls that walked, worked…where are the people on the floor? All the people there and they had nobody behind the counter, which is supposed to be right there? There was nobody working behind, the store’s packed. It’s a disgrace these false, a, a false accusation like that is a disgrace.
