CNN town hall first chance for Trump to address sex abuse finding

BY Mahi

The CNN town hall will be Donald Trump's first televised appearance after a federal jury in New York City on Tuesday found him liable for sexual assault and defamation. 

Do not expect repentance; Among other things, the former president called the decisions a "disgrace" minutes after they were handed down. 

As the Guardian's Joan E Grieve reports, Republicans and the curious among the audience of undecided voters may still decide to ask him about it:

Donald Trump may face questions about the sexual assault of E Jean Carroll when he participates in a CNN town hall on Wednesday night.

The town hall comes a day after a jury found him liable for sexual assault and defamation, underscoring the former president's mounting legal threats amid his attempt to capture the White House next year.

CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins will moderate a town hall at 8:00 ET at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, where Trump will take questions from Republicans and undecided voters on early voting conditions.

Town hall attendees will probably press Trump on how he wants to run for president because he faces legal threats in several states. 

On Tuesday, a New York jury concluded that Trump sexually assaulted advice columnist E Jean Carroll 27 years ago, ordering the former president to pay $5m in damages for her battery and defamation claims Was.
