Trump is calling for “Merit Based immigration” following the truck attack in New York City that killed eight people and injured 11. Trump says on Twitter Wednesday that the driver in Tuesday’s attack “came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty.” (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) MORE LESS

During an interview in 2000 with a reporter for Maximum Golf magazine, Donald Trump referenced someone at his Mar-a-Lago club and said “there is nothing in the world like first-rate pussy,” the Daily Beast reported Wednesday night.

The journalist, Michael Corcoran, and his editor at the time confirmed to the Daily Beast that Trump made the remark, but the magazine’s top editor forbade Corcoran from printing the comment. The magazine replaced the word “pussy” with “talent” when using the quote in the piece, Corcoran’s editor at the time, Joe Bargmann, told the Daily Beast.

The remark echoes Trump’s comments caught on the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that his fame allowed him to grab women “by the pussy.” According to recent reports, the President has privately questioned the authenticity of that tape, even though he acknowledged at the time the “Access Hollywood” tape was released that it was him on the recording.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
