White House deny claim Trump 'paid porn star to keep quiet about sex encounter'

It is alleged Trump's attorney handed the cash to Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, who starred in films called “Dirty Deeds” and “Nymphos”


Donald Trump allegedly had a fling with a porn star just a year after he married third wife Melania, it was reported last night.

And the US president’s lawyer was said to have paid Stephanie Clifford £100,000 in the run up to his 2016 election victory in America not to discuss the claims.

The White House last night strenuously denied the allegation, made in the Wall Street Journal.

Clifford, 38 – who performed under the name Stormy Daniels – had supposedly been in talks with ABC’s Good Morning America TV show in the autumn of that year about an appearance to discuss her tryst with Trump.

She is said to have received the hush money after ­supposedly signing a ­nondisclosure agreement.

Clifford added in a statement: “Rumours that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false.”

But she had claimed she met up with the president in July 2006 at a celebrity golf ­tournament in Lake Tahoe – which he denied, before a photo of them surfaced.

Trump was also accused of offering £8,200 for sex with another porn star, Jessica Drake, at the same event.

The president denies the allegation. He claims all women who have accused him of sexual misconduct are liars.
