2006 Meeting At Nevada Golf Course: Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels

A picture shows Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels posing together at a porn studio booth. Ms Daniels was then working as a “greeter” at this studio. Ms Daniels was 27 at the time and Mr Trump 60. In the photo, Mr Trump is wearing a red hat, yellow polo shirt, and khaki pants. Ms Daniels, wearing a tight-fitting black top, is standing next to him.

Four months before the meeting with Ms Daniels, Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, had given birth to their son Barron.

Ms Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, claims that one of Mr Trump’s bodyguards had asked her to visit his penthouse at the golf course. Describing the encounter, she wrote that “it may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had”. In her book, she also includes an unflattering description of Mr Trump’s anatomy.

Hush Money Payments: Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels

In 2016, Donald Trump contested the Presidential Election and paid hush money to the porn star to keep her mounth shut.

Michael Cohen (Donald Trump’s lawyer) has acknowledged arranging a $130,000 “hush money” payment to Ms Daniels in exchange for her silence about the 2006 tryst.

Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump under the respective pseudonyms Peggy Peterson and David Dennison were the parties to a nondisclosure agreement prepared by Cohen that has emerged in court filings.

Mr Trump has denied that he ever had sex with Stormy Daniels or paid her hush money during his presidential campaign.

But a New York jury determined there was enough evidence to proceed with a case against Mr Trump. He is expected to be presented in court, according to his defense attorney.
