Until the election, we're bringing you "The Trump Files," a daily dose of telling episodes, strange but true stories, or curious scenes from the life of GOP nominee Donald Trump.
If there's one thing Donald Trump really doesn't like, it's being called out. British journalist Selina Scott found that out the hard way when she challenged his false claim that he wholly owned the Empire State Building.
In 1995, Scott interviewed Trump for a British television documentary. Scott and her producer, Ted Brocklebank, used the song "It Ain't Necessarily So" in the background of the film to highlight how Trump's claims "'didn't stand up,'" Brocklebank told journalist Michael D'Antonio in his book The Truth About Trump.
One of those claims occurred during a helicopter ride over Manhattan. Scott wrote in the Daily Mail early this year that Trump boasted that he was the sole owner of the Empire State Building, a declaration that Scott immediately challenged. He later said he owned 80 percent of the building, then admitted to owning just 50 percent of it. Scott reported Trump's false claims in her film.
