In a dramatic turn of events, E. Jean Carroll, who recently won an $83.3 million defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, has declared her intention to use the awarded damages to support causes that would cause Trump discomfort. Carroll, whom the court found Trump liable for sexually assaulting, revealed on Good Morning America her plan to allocate the funds to initiatives the ex-president disapproves of.
“If it’ll cause him pain for me to give money to certain things, that’s my intent,” Carroll asserted during the interview. She floated the idea of establishing a fund to aid women who claim to have been sexually assaulted by Donald Trump, potentially using the substantial award to empower survivors.
Meanwhile, Trump, currently the leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, seized on a different narrative. Using the recent deaths of three American soldiers in an Iranian drone attack in Jordan, he criticized Joe Biden’s presidency. Taking to Truth Social, Trump asserted that the attack would never have occurred under his leadership, blaming Biden for allegedly strengthening Iran with financial aid.
As political tensions escalate, Trump’s remarks hint at a potential narrative shift in the lead-up to the next presidential election, emphasizing his perspective on international affairs and casting doubt on his successor’s policies.
