Donald Trump calls sex accuser a ‘wack job’ – and refuses to say who he wants to win Ukraine war

Donald Trump called the woman he sexually abused a lying “wack job” and refused to say who he wants to win the Ukraine war in a wide-ranging interview on US television.

A jury in a civil case ruled this week that he assaulted – but didn’t rape – E Jean Carroll in a department store changing room in the 1990s.

In an interview a day after the verdict, Mr Trump again insisted it was a “fake story” and mocked the magazine writer’s version of events.

“What kind of a woman meets somebody and brings them up and within minutes, you’re playing hanky panky in a dressing room?” he said.

He also doubled down on his claim that the “Clinton-appointed” judge was biased and didn’t treat him fairly.

Mr Trump was ordered to pay $5m compensation to Ms Carroll, which also includes damages for defaming her after he claimed she made up the story.

His lawyer has confirmed they will appeal. He won’t face a prison sentence either way because it wasn’t a criminal case.

Asked by the CNN interviewer if the verdict would deter women from voting for him, he replied: “No, I don’t think so.”

The ex-president was also questioned about infamous remarks during a TV show in 2005, in which he talked about grabbing women “by the p****”.

The comments also came up in the trial, and in the ‘town hall’ programme on Wednesday night he declined to apologize for them.
