Trump Lied He Was 'Ladies Man' At All-Male School, Biographer Says

A biographer ofDonald Trumpsays the president’s habit of lying can be traced back to his school days.

Pulitzer Prize-winning authorMichael D’Antonio, who wrote the 2016 bookThe Truth About Trump, on Friday told CNN’sAnderson Cooperthat the president has been fabricating stories since childhood.

“This is Donald, really going back to his school days when he was a boy, he insisted to others that he had hit home runs he had never hit in ball games,” D’Antonio said.

The author made the comments while discussing reports that Trump previouslytried to deceive journalistsby using false names in phone interviews.

Trump “left the New York Military Academy declaring himself the greatest baseball player in New York state and it just went on and on and on,” D’Antonio said. “He was named the ladies man at a school that had no young women at it, so you tell me, he has been doing this forever.”
