Dino Sajudin, the former Trump Tower doorman who got paid $30,000 to keep silent over rumors he’d heard about President Donald Trump fathering an out-of-wedlock child with a Trump Organization employee, has now gone on the record.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Sajudin hit back at the Trump Organization for calling him a liar after he told the National Enquirer what he knew about Trump secretly fathering an out-of-wedlock child.
“You know I took a polygraph test,” Sajudin said in response to a Trump Organization statement that claimed he regularly fabricated stories.
Sajudin also said that he was not surprised to see that news organizations were starting to report on the deals that the National Enquirer had made over the years to “catch and kill” negative stories about Trump.
“It seems like the writing is on the wall about that, it’s pretty clear,” he said, while also noting that the rumor about Trump fathering an illegitimate child “had to come out” at some point.
Sajudin was paid $30,000 by the Enquirer for the exclusive rights to his story about Trump’s out-of-wedlock child. The tabloid then proceeded to keep a lid on the story entirely in what critics say is part of a long-standing pattern of protecting Trump from additional scandals.
