The PLAYBOY Interview with Donald Trump

by Glenn Plaskin

Click to read this morning's New York Times article about Glenn Plaskin's 1990 Playboy interview with The Donald.

We caught up with Mr. Plaskin today and he said, "Long before Twitter, in what was one of the hottest tabloid stories of the 1990's, I had the unique and surreal opportunity to interview Donald Trump, Ivana Trump, and Marla Maples, all at length for various New York Daily News and Tribune Media interviews.

Also, in an 11-hour interview for Playboy, I asked Trump about the possibility of his running for President and his answer was a 100% NO! People do change, though his positions on many issues have remained the same."

Mr. Plaskin, who most recently interviewed Anthony Robbins and Ray Kelly for Playboy, is also the President of the Gateway Plaza Tenants Association.
