Trump’s very public admission things aren’t all they seem comes after allegations by porn star Stormy Daniels she had a secret affair with the POTUS.
Stormy, also known as Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had an affair with the President in 2006 that lasted several months, and taking place just after Melania welcomed the couple’s son, Barron.
Trump hasn’t addressed the claims, however his lawyer, Michael Cohen, has denied allegations of the affair.
However the latest development has seen Stormy offer to return a $165,000 payment she reportedly received from Trump’s lawyer in 2016 not to discuss the alleged relationship.
“As we have always said, this is about a search for the truth and the ability of Ms. Clifford to tell the American people what really happened so they can make their own determination,” Stormy's lawyer Michael Avenatti said in a statement, according to the New York Times.
“Our offer proves this out.”
