The story in The New Yorker relies heavily on the first-hand account of Karen McDougal, a former Playmate of the Year, who recounts her consensual affair with the current American president before he was elected, according to the Post.
(He barely tried to hide this when it seemed like it didn't matter.) Farrow's story focuses on Karen McDougal, a one-time Playboy model who Trump met in 2006 at the Playboy Mansion, where Trump was filming an episode of The Apprentice.
"It was so obvious that a Playmate Promotions exec said, 'Wow, he was all over you - I think you could be his next wife, '" McDougal said.
Keep in mind, Trump at this point had been married to Melania for two years and Barron was just born.
McDougal's note claims the now US President paid for her to travel across the country as well as taking her on a tour of Trump towers, pointing out Melania's separate bedroom.
McDougal said she now regrets her deal with A.M.I., telling the New Yorker: "It took my rights away". The article notes that four days before the 2016 U.S. election, the Wall Street Journal reported that the National Enquirer's publisher, American Media, Inc., paid $150,000 for exclusive rights to McDougal. Trump is also chummy with the AMI chairman and CEO David Pecker, who has previously denied killing stories to help out the president.
Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen recently admitted to giving Daniels a large payout before the 2016 election ended, and she is taking this to mean that her non-disclosure agreement with him has been voided. A friend provided an eight-page letter she wrote in which the following account of their meeting was revealed. [National Enquirer's parent company] on and off from 2002 to 2012, including as an executive editor at one of the company's Web sites, said that Pecker also used the unpublished stories as "leverage" over some celebrities in order to pressure them to pose for his magazines or feed him stories.
Alana Evans-Evans (whose real name is Dawn Vanguard) says she was invited to join Daniels and Trump in a threesome, according to People. "He offered me money", she wrote. In December, three women who had accused the president of sexual misconduct called on Congress to investigate the growing number of claims.
"She feels she was trapped into an exploitative contract that bound her to silence, and that's something that she finds very frustrating", Farrow told Stephanopoulos. "The President says he never had a relationship with McDougal", a White House spokesman told the New Yorker in a statement. "She told The New Yorker she wanted to avoid "(influencing) anybody's election" or receiving "death threats on my head".
In this February 14, 2018 photo, President Donald Trump speaks about domestic violence during a working session regarding the opportunity zones provided by tax reform in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington.
Trump is denying the affair, just as he did the Stormy Daniels tryst which has seen been proven to be true.
