Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he will appeal a Manhattan federal jury verdict that found he sexually abused E. Jean Carroll in a luxury department store dressing room in the spring of 1996.
"We’ll be appealing this decision. It’s a disgrace," Trump said in one of the several videos he posted to his social media platform Truth Social.
Trump maintained his claim that he does not know who Carroll is, and called the trial "very unfair."
Carroll was awarded about $5 million for sexual battery and defamation, in a significant defeat for the former president.
"Somehow we’re going to have to fight this stuff," Trump said. "We cannot let our country go into this abyss. This is disgraceful.”
