New York Post deletes story about rape allegation against Trump at behest of Trump-loving editor: report

An allegation that President Trump raped a journalist in the 1990s was too much for a Trump-loving editor at the New York Post, it was reported Monday.
Col Allan — a former Post editor-in-chief and top Rupert Murdoch lieutenant who has returned to the paper in an effort to make it even more friendly to the president — ordered stories about E. Jean Carroll’s rape claim scrubbed from the Post’s website, CNN said.
The Post published a staff-written story about the alleged attack on its website after Carroll’s allegation emerged on Friday in New York magazine.
Allan ordered the deletion, sources told CNN business.
The Post did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the vanished article. 
People who clicked on search engine links pointing to the Post’s story landed at an error pagewith the message: “DID YOU GET LOST?”
In an upcoming book excerpted in New York magazine, Carroll said Trump assaulted her in a glitzy Manhattan department store more than two decades ago. Carroll said she told two friends about the incident at the time, and both confirmed her account to the magazine.
She said she never fully recovered from the attack.
