Trump fathered a child with an employee — according to ex-doorman paid off by National Enquirer: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump may have fathered a child with an employee and then paid to keep the situation under wraps, according to newly revealed documents.

The Associated Press confirmed the National Enquirer paid $30,000 to a former doorman at Trump World Tower in exchange with the perpetual rights to a story he’d heard about the child.

The payment came eight months before the tabloid paid $150,000 to former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, and it raises new questions about how the National Enquirer and attorney Michael Cohen fought to protect Trump’s reputation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The tabloid’s deal with ex-doorman Dino Sajudin effectively prohibited him from going public with rumors he had heard about Trump’s relationship with a woman who worked at the Trump Organization property near the United Nations.

The contract subjected Sajudin to a $1 million penalty if he revealed the rumor or terms of the hush agreement to anyone.

Federal investigators raided Cohen’s home, hotel and office on Monday seeking, among other evidence, communications between Cohen, publisher American Media’s chief executive and the Enquirer’s top editor.

RadarOnline, which is also published by American Media, published a story on the rumor Wednesday and said the Enquirer spent four weeks pursuing the story but ultimately decided it wasn’t true.

But four longtime staffers told the AP they were ordered by top editors to stop reporting on the story — which they described as promising.

The former Trump World Tower employee denied having an affair with Trump and said she had no idea the tabloid had paid Sajudin or pursued the information he claimed to have.

The AP has not been able to confirm the rumor and did not name the woman, who said the story was “all fake.”

Sajudin told the AP he would only tell his story in exchange for money.

Published

on

Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
