Carroll’s allegations were initially made public earlier this year, and join those of roughly two dozen women who accuse the president of inappropriate behavior, groping, forcible kissing, and sexual assault at various points of his career.
Trump has broadly denied all these allegations, and specifically said of Carroll that she was “not my type.”
