A biographer of Donald Trump says the president’s habit of lying can be traced back to his school days.
“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 previously tried to deceive journalists by 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.”
"People will present him with these audio recordings and he'll deny that it's him even after he's admitted to it. It's really impossible to follow." - Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio https://t.co/RUZWXswMb2pic.twitter.com/0V6UpaWBYX— Anderson Cooper 360° (@AC360) April 21, 2018
