In a latest released interview between Donald Trump and radio personality Howard Stern has revealed intimate details about the relationship between the president and his wife.
Speaking in 1999, six years before the pair got married, Stern asked Trump about groping his wife in public, as well as how they met for the first time.
Trump revealed that when the pair first met, “it didn’t go well” at a big party in New York.
The pair first got to know each other during the 1998 New York Fashion Week just over a year after he had separated from his previous wife Marla Marples.
The newly transcribed interviews have emerged after an anonymous source sent audio files of 35 interviews between Trump and Stern to the website factba.se.
The full transcripts have since been released to the public for all to read and hear.
Speaking with Stern on the 11 November 1999 Trump provided further insight about some of these meetings.
