Trump Paid Actors $50 to Cheer for Him

Donald Trump allegedly paid background actors $50 each to cheer for him at his presidential announcement Tuesday, according to a casting agency email obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. The agency, Extra Mile Casting, sent an email to background actors saying, “We are looking to cast people for the event to wear T-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement.” Trump’s team denies hiring any actors, saying, “Mr. Trump draws record crowds at almost every venue at which he is a featured speaker. The crowds are large, often record-setting and enthusiastic, often with standing ovations. Mr Trump’s message is ‘Make America great again.’”
