When man-about-town Trump posed as his own spokesman

WASHINGTON (AP) — Back when Donald Trump’s love life was tabloid heaven, a Trump spokesman with intimate knowledge of the businessman’s personal relationships offered juicy stories about a failing marriage, a new live-in paramour and three other girlfriends he was juggling at once.

The spokesman’s name was John Miller. But The Washington Post says it was actually Trump, posing as his own spokesman on the phone with a reporter who wondered why Miller’s voice sounded so familiar.

The Post has unearthed a recording of that 1991 phone call.

On NBC’s “Today” show Friday, Trump denied being the voice on the phone. He says: “I don’t know anything about it.”

The Post says Trump was known in those days for posing as public relations men to advocate for himself, under several alter egos.
