What is the story of the Trump-Daniels affair?
Before the 2016 election, Daniels allegedly took $130,000 (£100,000) from Trump's former attorney in exchange for keeping quiet about their se*ual encounter. Michael Cohen, the attorney, was subsequently imprisoned on several counts. Since the allegations first emerged in 2018, the former president has denied having any se*ual contact with Daniels.
Donald trump met porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006. The two met during a charity-based celebrity golf tournament in Nevada. According to a report, trump was so impressed by meeting Daniels that he called the porn star to meet him alone in the hotel suite. Daniels says that during this both had made physical relations. trump was 60 years old at that time while Daniels was 27 years old. Daniels has alleged that trump had promised him to bring the show on TV. It was from here that meeting started.
After this, in the 2016 presidential election, when trump felt that the story of his affair with the porn star would come out and there would be a loss in the election, he paid an amount of $ 1.3 million to Stormy Daniels through his lawyer to hide it. Although it is not a crime to pay Daniels to keep mouth shut, the record of that payment showing legal fees has become a sore throat for the former President.
