Trial witness describes Trump as ‘most eligible bachelor’ despite marriage to Melania

David Pecker, former publisher of the National Enquirer, told a Manhattan jury that Donald Trump was considered the “most eligible bachelor” in 2015 — despite his marriage to Melania Trump.

The remarks came during Pecker’s second day of testimony in Trump’s trial for allegedly falsifying business records to cover up a sex scandal with adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Pecker told prosecutor Joshua Steinglass that he had a meeting with Trump and former lawyer Michael Cohen to discuss what the magazine “could do to help the campaign.”

The former publisher described a catch-and-kill scheme where the National Enquirer would intercept “women selling stories.”

Pecker said women wanted to sell their stories because Trump was “well known as the most eligible bachelor and dated the most beautiful women.”

MSNBC contributor Adam Klasfeld noted that Trump married his current wife, Melania, in 2005, 10 years before the meeting with Pecker took place.
