Did Donald Trump have a second job in the early 90s as a spokesman for himself under the pseudonym John Miller?

On Friday the presumptive Republican presidential nominee denied a Washington Post report that he masqueraded as Miller for an interview in 1991.

“It was not me on the phone,” he told NBC’s “Today” show when the hosts played part of the recording. “And it doesn’t sound like me on the phone, I’ll tell you that, and it was not me on the phone.”

“This sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams, doesn’t sound like me,” he said. “I don’t think it was me, it doesn’t sound like me.”

When pressed further he was more succinct.

“You’re going so low to talk about something that took place 25 years ago whether or not I made a phone call?” he challenged. “Let’s get on to more current subjects.”

And while the “Today” hosts did move on, the subject stayed hot all day because of the braggadocious nature of the call.

In the decades-old recording “Miller” bragged about the many females vying for Trump, including pop superstar Madonna.

“Well, she called and wanted to go out with him, that I can tell you,” Miller told People Magazine reporter Sue Carswell.

And that’s not all.

“I mean, he’s living with Marla and he’s got three other girlfriends,” he said.

Miller, who said he was “new” at the Trump organization, also bragged about Trump’s great financial success.

“He’s coming out of a marriage, and he’s starting to do tremendously well financially,” he said.

Though Trump denied that it was him on the tape on Friday a People Magazine article published shortly after the call said Trump admitted to being Miller and regretted the “joke gone awry.”
