Donald Trump denies he posed as his own spokesman 25 years ago, but audio obtained by the Washington Post suggests otherwise.
“No, I don’t think it — I don’t know anything about it. You’re telling me about it for the first time and it doesn’t sound like my voice at all,” he said Friday in a phone interview on “Today.”
His denial is in reference to audio of a 1991 phone call published Friday morning by the Post.
“I have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice and then you can imagine that, and this sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams — doesn’t sound like me,” he said, adding later, “It was not me on the phone. And it doesn’t sound like me on the phone, I will tell you that, and it was not me on the phone. And when was this? Twenty-five years ago?”
However, the audio obtained by the Post suggests an entirely different story.
“I’m sort of new here,” a man named “John Miller,” who sounds an awful lot like Trump, can be heard saying in the recently unearthed phone recording. “I’m somebody that he knows and I think somebody that he trusts and likes … I’m going to do this a little, part-time, and then, yeah, go on with my life.”
The Post reported Trump’s supposed use of an alter ego dates back to at least the late 1970s.
