Did ‘Candidate’ Donald Trump Really Pay $130,000.00 to Porn Star Stormy Daniels to Keep Quiet Before the 2016 Presidential Election?
According to a news story first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump had his lawyer arrange a payment of $130,000 to a former porn star known as Stormy Daniels, just a month before the 2016 presidential election.
Stormy Daniels, the former adult actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told a friend the sexual encounter with Trump occurred after a Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament in 2006, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“I ended up with Donald in his hotel room. Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities,” Clifford allegedly told her porn star friend Alana Evans.

Stephanie Clifford announced a potential Senate campaign run in her home state of Louisiana in 2009, but was arrested in Tampa, Florida on domestic violence charges two months before.
Donald Trump’s lawyer told The Wall Street Journal, “President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels”, but the statement neither confirmed or denied the payment of $130,000 to Ms. Daniels.
