A federal jury said he should pay her $5 million in total damages, a verdict that could further complicate the former president's election bid in 2024.

The jury, which deliberated fewer than three hours, opted not to find Trump liable for rape but rather sexual abuse and forcible touching that injured Carroll.

Trump is likely to appeal the verdict, saying on his Truth Social website that he still has "no idea" who Carroll is. "This verdict is a disgrace," the former president said in an all-caps post.
