Karen Mcdougal And Trump
In November 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported that McDougal had told her friend that she had an affair with a married Donald Trump from 2006 to 2007, with various sources quoting that it had lasted from ten months to a year.The Wall Street Journal published the story four days before the 2016 United States presidential election, in which Trump was the Republican nominee.
In February 2018, with Trump already elected as President, The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote about the affair and AMI’s purchase of the story, largely corroborating the 2016 Wall Street Journal report, except that the affair had gone on for nine months.
Karen declined to discuss details of the alleged affair due to her agreement with AMI, but she told Farrow that she regretted signing that agreement, saying, “It took my rights away… I don’t know what I’m allowed to talk about. I’m afraid to even mention his name.” Farrow also wrote that AMI CEO/Chairman David Pecker has a “favorite tactic” of buying “a story in order to bury it”. AMI said it did not publish McDougal’s story as it was not credible, and a spokesperson for the White House denied the affair.
Karen was interviewed by Anderson Cooper in August 2018, on AC360 in which she detailed her alleged affair with Trump. In the interview Karen said that Trump tried to give her money after they first had sex. Karen also stated that their relationship lasted ten months and that she visited Trump “many dozens of times”.
