  • Donald Trump denied showing ex-employees photos of women he'd been involved with.

  • Maggie Haberman wrote in her new book, "Confidence Man," that Trump's ex-employees recalled him doing so.

  • They also told Haberman that Trump would belittle gay executives and brag about paying them less.

Trump employees recalled that Donald Trump would show them photos of "scantily clad" women he said he had had relationships with while he was a real estate executive, according to a new book by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.

"He appeared to keep the photos on hand to illustrate his boastful rendering of masculinity," Haberman wrote.

But, according to Haberman's handwritten notes from an interview with Trump, this was "fake news - not my style."

Haberman has used photos of her notes on Twitter to clap back at Trump's attacks that her book contains "many made up stories with zero fact-checking and confirmation with anyone who would know, like me," Trump wrote on Truth Social. Haberman said she interviewed Trump three times for her book, and the first came at Trump's request.

 

Haberman wrote that Trump "reveled in the image of a sexually voracious man-about-town" during his years as a single businessman: dating models, frequently discussing his sexual interactions in vivid detail with his associates, and having what Haberman described as a "notably progressive" number of women in executive roles in the Trump Organization.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump addressed what he called "locker-room talk" in the wake of The Washington Post's publication of his off-camera comments to then-"Access Hollywood" cohost Billy Bush. Trump told Bush that he would "grab" women "by the pussy." 

Trump's ex-employees also told Haberman he would mock gay men. Haberman wrote that Trump was "nothing but pleasant and accepting" to one openly gay executive, but behind his back, bragged about purposefully paying the person less because of their sexuality.
