Despite Hayek repeatedly shutting down his advances, Trump, that yuge respecter of women's boundaries, kept calling and calling, until one day Hayek noticed a story in The National Enquirer about how a certain "genius" "billionaire" "playboy" "philanthropist" wouldn't date her because she was too short. And right on cue, Trump was on the horn offering up a way to prove this story was bull.
"He called and left me a message. 'Can you believe this? Who would say this? I don't want people to think this about you.' He thought that I would try to go out with him so people wouldn't think that's why he wouldn't go out with me."

Which suggests that if we filled the Oval Office with wigs, smoke machines, and scantily clad ladies, he might get some work done. Anyway, afterward, Trump turned to the band and demanded that instead of $25,000, he be paid a whopping $250,000, his rationale being that he only signed on for a cameo, not to appear throughout the video.
