Trump ‘Pretended’ He Was a Spokesman for Trump [VIDEO]

Donald Trump used to use pseu-donyms to call reporters and plant stories about his life, according to a Washington Post investigation. Despite an audio recording that sounded like him, the presumptive nominee claimed it was a “scam” on the Today show Friday. “It was not me on the phone,” he said. On the recording obtained by the newspaper, a spokesman named “John Miller” sounded a lot like Trump. Reporters who covered Trump’s Manhattan office in the 1970s through the ’90s would often experience phone encounters with either “John Miller” or “John Barron,” who the Post says were, in fact, Trump himself. The newspaper said they corroborated that account with several journalists and former aides of the reality-TV star. In 1990, Trump reportedly testified during a court case: “I believe on occasion I used that name.”
