Former adult-film star Stormy Daniels says she was threatened to remain silent on her alleged affair with President Trump. In the first televised interview on the matter, Daniels told "CBS 60 Minutes" that an unknown man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 while she was with her infant daughter.
Daniels told Anderson Cooper that the man told her to "leave Trump alone" and "forget the story," and then looked at her daughter and said "that's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom."
Daniels was reportedly trying to sell her story about the alleged affair with then-citizen Trump.
Among the revelations, Daniels says she and the president had sex "just once" (as opposed to Karen McDougal, who says she had repeated encounters with Mr. Trump over a 10-month span). Daniels also said that while she “didn’t want to have sex” with Trump, she’s not a part of the #MeToo movement – that her involvement was consensual.
- For his part, Trump has denied having an affair (though he admits there's an NDA), and his lawyers are now threatening her with financial ruin if she keeps talking.
- The alleged affair apparently happened about ten years ago, shortly after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.
- Both Daniels and McDougal say that Trump told each of them that they reminded him of his daughter, Ivanka.
