President Donald Trump may be praying for nightmares surrounding him to end but it seems his prayer may not be answered soon. The president has been taking a beating lately and another bomb shell just hit so hard that we could feel his pain.
A new investigative report that reveals that the National Enquirer’s parent company — American Media, Inc. (AMI) — made clandestine payments to squash yet another story that could have destroyed Donald Trump’s ability to clutch the presidency in the 2016 election.
Multiple sources involved with AMI spoke with The New Yorker‘s Ronan Farrow and revealed that the company reportedly paid $30,000 to Dino Sajudin, a former doorman at Trump Tower. The payment allegedly was made in 2015 in order to buy exclusive rights to Sajudin as a news source. Sources claim that reasoning for such rights involves a coverup for a rumor that Donald Trump had a child with a former employee back in the 1980s.
The New Yorker couldn’t find evidence to validate the rumor about Trump’s secret child, they did obtain portions of the contract that the former doorman signed when he entered into his agreement with AMI. Subsequently, CEO David Pecker — and personal friend of Trump — ordered his reporters to stop investigating the rumor.
“There’s no question it was done as a favor to continue to protect Trump from these potential secrets,” according to a source that spoke with Farrow. “That’s black-and-white.”
