A newly resurfaced video from 1992 shows president Donald Trump admitting to kissing NBC talk show host Faith Daniels when her husband's back was turned.
In the clip, the now-president can be heard bragging that the kiss was 'so nice and open', during an appearance on Daniels' A Closer Look program, which Trump claimed that he agreed to appear on because of his misbehaviour at a New York City charity event, reports the Huffington Post.
Speaking to the live TV audience, Daniels said:
You kissed me on the lips in front of the paparazzi... and I said, 'That’ll cost you. I’m booking you on the show.’
In response, Trump said:
The kiss was so good, and it was so open and nice. She's a fabulous woman.
Her husband is a handsome devil, I’ll tell you.
He’s a good guy. But I think he had his back turned at the time. So, we had a good time.
The video was highlighted by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on her talk show on Wednesday, who then shared the clip to her 'Maddow Blog' Twitter account where she wrote:
Here is some of the 1992 "A Closer Look" interview with Donald Trump in which he tells the story of abruptly kissing the show's married host on the mouth.
The Mar-a-Lago video surfaced by MSNBC earlier today was shot in connection with this interview.
