Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star whom President Donald Trump’s lawyer reportedly paid $US130,000 to keep quiet after an alleged extramarital affair, claimed that Trump compared her to his daughter.
In Touch Weekly featured an interview with Clifford, also known by her stage name Stormy Daniels from 2011, before Clifford allegedly accepted money to sign a nondisclosure agreement. In the interview, Clifford detailed her alleged affair with Trump that she said took place in 2006.
Though Clifford has since denied the affair took place, in 2011 she told “In Touch” that Trump enthusiastically courted her, and detailed their encounters, which she described as intimate.
The interview contained a few details of the allegedly intimate encounter, but in the print edition of the interview, as pointed out by Spin, Clifford said Trump compared her to his daughter.
“We had really good banter,” Clifford said. “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter.”
At the time of the alleged encounter, Ivanka Trump, Trump’s eldest daughter, would have been 24 years old. Clifford would have been 26.
