Donald Trump Vows He’d Pay Mika Brzezinski ‘Much More’ Than Joe Scarborough

By Mark Joyella 

In a discussion of equal pay on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said he’d pay Mika Brzezinski “much more” than co-host Joe Scarborough.

“I would absolutely pay you more,” he told Brzezinski. “Joe, I would pay Mika so much more your head would spin.”

Last year, Brzezinski said on-air that she only learned she was making less than Scarborough when he told her his salary, and then supported her in a fight with bosses to get equal pay.


Brzezinski has written two books on the topic, and earlier this year lauched a nationwide tour, Know Your Value, aimed at addressing inequality in business–and helping women know their value–and get there.
