Donald Trump Jr. crossed paths with a horrified Huma Abedin on Halloween in 2017 while dressed up in a spandex super-hero bodysuit costume whose crowning touch was a rubber mask of his father's face.
As he took his children Trick-or-Treating that year in one of New York City's toniest neighborhoods, he said Thursday, he bumped into Huma Abedin.
'Figured I could troll the Upper East Side with that one, and literally walked right into Huma,' he said in a text message.
Abedin had served as Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff at the State Department and her traveling chief of staff during the 2016 presidential campaign which finished a distant second to President Donald Trump.
The president's eldest son told the story to a radio host as part of a book tour for 'Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,' which will be released Tuesday.
