In New York‘s 50th anniversary issue, the magazine shared notable letters that it received over the last few decades. There are letters from Jackie Robinson, Spike Lee, and Gore Vidal. But one of the letters was written by a person we haven’t heard of. She may not even exist.

The letter is from Carolin Gallego, who claimed to be President Donald Trump’s secretary in the 1990s. Once the letter began circulating across the internet, people noticed that the language sounded very familiar.

People started trying to find Carolin Gallego. No one seems to recognize the name.

Maybe her name changed, or it was spelled incorrectly in the original letter. Or maybe this is another John Miller incident, the PR flack whose voice sounded a lot like Trump’s during an interview.

So did Trump ghostwrite, or dictate, this letter to the magazine? Look at all the times Trump has said, “Nobody has more respect for women than I do,” and then read this letter. You decide.
