BuzzFeed reports that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump appeared in what is being described as a “softcore porn” video produced by Playboy in the year 2000.
Trump appeared in the video for only a few seconds, as he welcomes Playboy models to New York City. He pops a bottle of champagne and pours it on a Playboy-branded limousine.
“Beauty is beauty, and let’s see what happens with New York,” Trump is heard saying in voiceover.
Other scenes in the VHS videotape feature nude women engaged in sexually explicit actions.

BuzzFeed’s revelation comes after a week of Trump attacks toward former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado. During Monday’s Presidential Debate, Hillary Clinton cited Machado as an example of how Trump mistreats women.
In the early hours of Friday morning, Trump tweeted that Machado’s judgment should be questioned after she appeared in a “sex tape,” — a clip from a Spanish reality show in which she had sex with a co-star while being filmed with a night vision camera.
Trump's role in the video can be viewed on BuzzFeed.
