We recently learned that the National Enquirer allegedly paid Dino Sajudin, a former doorman at Trump Tower, to bury a story involving an affair between President Trump and his former housekeeper. According to reports, the sexual tryst took place in the late 1980s and produced a love child.

Sajudin released a statement Thursday afternoon confirming leaked reports that the president, indeed, fathered a secret child out of wedlock with his ex-employee.

"Today I awoke to learn that a confidential agreement that I had with AMI [American Media, Inc., parent company of the National Enquirer] with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press," said Sajudin in a statement obtained by CNN. "I can confirm that while working at Trump World Tower I was instructed not to criticize President Trump's former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump which produced a child."

The Hill reported that Sajudin was paid $30,000 by AMI in late 2015 for his story about the affair so the publisher could bury it. Now that Sajudin’s contract has expired with The Enquirer, he’s free to speak more openly about the story, which was also validated by a recent lie detector test.

AMI vehemently denies the claim.This recent accusation adds to a laundry list of indiscretions and corruption enveloping the Trump administration, including a possibly illegal payout of $130,000 to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.
