Defamation Trial Winner E Jean Carroll Reveals Plan to Spend $83 Million on Cause That Donald Trump Hates

NEW YORK, NY – E Jean Carroll plans to use the $83 million awarded to her in her defamation trial against Donald Trump on something that the former president “hates.” This decision comes just days after a jury’s ruling in Carroll’s favor.

The jury awarded Carroll $18.3 million in compensatory damages and $65 million in punitive retribution. Of the compensatory damages, Trump was ordered to pay Carroll $11 million for reputational repair and $7.3 million for the emotional harm caused by his 2019 statements against her.

Carroll and her legal team broke their public silence on Monday in an interview with Good Morning America. They expressed elation and happiness following the trial’s outcome.

During the interview, Carroll revealed her intention to use the money to support causes that would cause Trump pain. She also indicated that she might explore contributing to “a fund for the women who have been sexually assaulted by Donald Trump.”

Following the verdict, Trump took to his Truth Social platform to denounce the decision as “absolutely ridiculous” and announced plans to file an appeal. In response, Carroll’s attorney expressed confidence in their ability to collect the awarded money, even if it may not happen immediately.

Prior to the trial, Carroll had disclosed her anxiety about facing the former president. However, once in court, she described seeing Trump as “an emperor without clothes” and seemingly stripped of his power.

The recent trial was separate from a previous case in which Carroll won $5 million for sexual abuse and defamatory remarks made by Trump. Despite the lack of theatrics during the proceeding, Trump’s walkout during the closing statement caused a stir. Carroll’s attorney remarked on the irony of Trump’s actions, suggesting that it may have won them an additional $10 million.

Looking ahead, Carroll’s legal team is prepared to bring another case if Trump defames her again. They are confident that it will only result in more money being awarded to Carroll.

Overall, the outcome of the trial has left Carroll and her legal team feeling victorious and optimistic about the future.
