The Trump before the Storm

The Trump before the Storm

By Nicholas Everard

President of the United States Donald Trump has found himself at the eye of a political storm.

American adult-film star Stormy Daniels, born Stephanie Clifford, has taken to prime time television to reveal the details of her alleged affair with President Trump. In the tell-all interview, Ms Daniels claimed she had unprotected, consensual sex with Donald Trump in 2006, mere months after the birth of his son Baron.

The former actress also alleged she was threatened in front of her child after agreeing to sell the story to a publication in 2011.

“I was in a parking lot going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” she said. “A guy walked up on me, and said to me ‘leave Trump alone, forget the story’.”

“He leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘that’s a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her Mum’.”

Ms Daniels went on to describe her fear, as well as accusing Mr Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen of continuing the threats.


Today, White House representatives have been working overtime to deny and extinguish allegations the President had an affair with a former adult film star.

Although President Trump is yet to comment directly on the accusations, his staffers are on high alert.

According to White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah, the claims made by Ms Daniels are false and have no merit.

“No he does not [believe the claims],” he said. “There is nothing to corroborate her claim.”

President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen has also taken a stand.

In a letter sent to Ms Daniels’ lawyer by Mr Cohen and his legal team, it is suggested she should “cease and desist” discussing the matter, and that the adult-film star should “immediately retract and apologise to Mr Cohen through national media.”

From the office of Mr Cohen’s attorney.
