During an interview on Howard Stern’s radio show in 2001, gossip columnist A.J. Benza confronted soon-to-be President Donald Trump about his fondness for sleeping with Russian women.
In audio of the program that was pointed out by Death and Taxes this week, Trump can be heard arguing with Benza over, Kara Young, a woman they had both dated.
“I assume A.J.’s clean,” Trump says. “I hope he’s clean.”
“Meanwhile, he bangs Russian people,” Benza fires back at Trump.
“Russian people?” Stern gasps.
“Who are you talking about, Russian people, A.J.?” Trump quips dismissively. “I don’t know anything.”
“He used to call me when I was a columnist and say, ‘I was just in Russia, the girls have no morals, you gotta get out there,'” Benza explains. “He’s out of his mind.”
The 2001 interview resurfaced the same week that a dossier prepared by a former British intelligence officer suggested that the Russian government had compromising videos of the president-elect with sex workers.
The exchange between Trump and Benza comes at the 4:20 mark in the audio clip below.

Trump’s campaign reveals just how very little money they have left
Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing. President Donald Trump has attempted to keep his campaign numbers hidden with a late filing, and by Sunday evening it was clear why.
Trump's total haul for August, when he got a week's worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.
The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.
