No! President Trump Denies Paying Adult Actress Stormy Daniels $130,000
Adult entertainer Stormy Daniels is still causing a stir in the news, as President Trump’s legal team remains on the offensive. She had earlier claimed to have had an affair with Donald Trump between 2006-2007.
However, President Trump denies ever knowing her. In addition, he claimed to be unaware of the non-disclosure agreement she signed with his lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Trump still says he is innocent
The president also denies providing $130,000 hush money that Cohen paid to Stormy Daniels for her silence. In over a month, pressure from the press has been unable to yield a change in the president’s position.
This week, Donald Trump was again confronted by the press about the Stormy Daniels hush-money payment. This incident occurred on Air Force One on Thursday. And again, he denied knowing about the payment.
We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump's feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment as stated on Air Force One. As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath. #searchforthetruth #basta

Stormy Daniels through her lawyer Michael J. Avenatti had previously requested to be let out of her NDA. President Trump’s legal team refused her request. Instead, they are suing her for $20 million for breaking the deal.
With President Trump still denying knowledge of Stormy Daniels or the agreement, Avenatti says the agreement is void.
Stormy Daniels is not the only one making claims
So far, 19 women have accused President Trump of sexual impropriety with incidents dating as far back as the 90’s. And of that number, 7 are former beauty queens.
Temple Taggart McDowell was once a contestant in the Miss USA competition in 1997. She claims Trump embraced her and kissed her on the lips without her permission.
Adult actress Jessica Drake also claims that after groping and kissing her, Trump offered her $10,000 for sex. The incident happened at the same golf event where Trump met Stormy Daniels.
There seems to be no immediate end in sight to the Trump saga. As for the Stormy Daniels case, there may be a settlement in the works. Trump’s lawyers on Monday sought to move the case from federal court to private arbitration.
