A woman has come forward alleging that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a New York department store dressing room in the 1990s.

E. Jean Carroll, an author and columnist, described the alleged assault in an excerpt published Friday by New York magazine from her upcoming book about her experiences with men. The magazine said that Carroll confided in two friends at the time, and that both verified her account now.
