Donald Trump Appeared in Softcore Porn Video in 2000

Donald Trump appeared in a softcore porn video in 2000, years before he slammed former Miss Universe Alicia Machado via Twitter for allegedly having a sex tape.

In footage obtained by Buzzfeed, the businessman, 70, can be seen grinning and breaking open a bottle of champagne on a Playboy-branded limo as a welcome gesture to a whole host of Playmates visiting New York City.

“Beauty is beauty, and let’s see what happens with New York,” the future Republican presidential candidate says on tape.

Though Trump remains fully clothed throughout the video, the film, titled Playboy Video Centerfold 2000, also features images of naked women in various sexual positions, touching themselves and rubbing honey all over their bodies.

According to Buzzfeed, the VHS cover of the video reads: “From luxuriating in a warm, soapy tub, to reveling at an exclusive night club, Carol and Darlene bare their sex appeal and lead you on a sensual journey of discovery.”

Trump’s brief foray into the porn world comes to light following the real estate mogul’s Twitter rant against Machado on Friday, September 30. In a string of angry tweets, the former Apprentice star urged his followers to “check out [her] sex tape.”

“Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an ‘angel’ without checking her past, which is terrible!” he tweeted, in reference to Hillary Clinton coming to Machado’s defense during the Monday, September 26, presidential debates.

“Using Alicia M in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con,” he continued. “Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. Citizen so she could use her in the debate?”

Clinton, 68, once again came to Machado’s defense shortly afterward, tweeting: “This is … unhinged, even for Trump. A few notes. What kind of man stays up all night to smear a woman with lies and conspiracy theories?”
