As voting begins in the Iowa caucuses today, social media is buzzing about a BOMBSHELL report from Selina Scott, an ITV reporter, who has made some shocking claims against conservative billionaire Donald Trump.

More than 20 years ago in 1995, she was assigned to create a 1-hour profile of Trump. She flew in Trump’s private jet and was called “beautiful” and noted how Trump likes “beautiful things:”

We were at 30,000ft on Trump’s private jet flying to Florida, when he showed me his white leather double bed. ‘I like beautiful things,’ he purred seductively. ‘That’s why I like you so much.’

This was just one of many revealing and excruciating moments during the two weeks I spent with Trump in 1995 while making a 60-minute profile of him for ITV – a fortnight which started with a charm offensive, but ended in bitterness, recrimination and intimidating letters that only stopped when I threatened legal action.

Her piece for the Daily Mail shows that she clearly hates Trump’s conservative principles and tough talk against illegal aliens and Islamic terrorists. She called him a “shark” and thinks Trump is lying to the voters of Iowa:

I prided myself on being a pragmatic interviewer, well versed in the wiles of those seeking to make a favourable impression on camera, but by now I was beginning to feel uneasy.

As I was paraded before Trump’s grinning acolytes, those words began to swim in my head.

‘Partner in the deal’? What did this mean? Did he think he had won me over and I was somehow incorporated into his publicity department, already wrapped up in his deluded sense of his own wonderfulness?

Trump was turning on the full wattage of what he perceived to be his irresistible charm to women, but there was a great deal more of this theatricality to come – as viewers of last week’s Channel 4 documentary The Madness Of Donald Trump would have seen.

The station broadcast an embarrassing clip with him dancing around me, saying: ‘Isn’t she beautiful? She doesn’t think she’s beautiful but she is beautiful,’ while I grimaced.

This flattery came shortly after our first meeting and was swiftly followed by Trump announcing: ‘She shares with [talk show host] Larry King an ability to charm and cajole you into revealing more than you intended. Also she’s a lot better looking.’

She also made the accusation that the late Diana, Princess of Wales, said Trump gave her the “creeps.”

She also believes he is hateful towards women:

So it is with some amusement that 20 years after I made that film, the giant NBC network in America has asked to buy my Channel 4 interview about Trump, including all unused footage, to put with my original documentary for imminent broadcast. There is little doubt that Trump sees me as his nemesis. The truth is I had moved on the minute I finished my film.

But he hasn’t, because he is a misogynist. I will never forget his vitriol when he told me about a female American broadcaster who he thought had done him down and his determination to get even with her.

And he concludes that America will see the “killer” mentality that his father passed onto him.
