Is there legal documented proof that Donald Trump is a child rapist? No, that's not true: The claim is based on a lawsuit filed in 2016 by a woman who claimed Trump raped her when she was 13 years old. The complaint, which was dismissed months after it was filed, does not serve as "legal documented proof" of a rape, as Lead Stories explained in a previous debunk article titled Fact Check: Jane Doe V. Donald J. Trump And Jeffrey E. Epstein Lawsuit Filing Is NOT Proof Trump Is A Rapist.
The claim appeared in a meme in a post (archived here) shared on July 9, 2020. The post, which included a link to the lawsuit document, read:

The post's use of the complaint filed in the 2016 case of Jane Doe V. Donald J. Trump And Jeffrey E. Epstein is inaccurate. The complaint cannot be considered "legal document proof" of anything.
