  • Adult film actress Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels speaks to media along with lawyer Michael Avenatti outside federal court in Manhattan

Daniels, who claims that she had a sexual encounter with Trump and was paid $130,000 for her confidentiality, filed the lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on Monday.

After Clifford released a drawing of the man she said threatened her, Trump tweeted: "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man".

"The tabloid weekly is not merely friendly to Trump but operated on his personal behalf", wrote New York Magazine political columnist Jonathan Chait on Monday.

Trump retweeted a sketch of the man, calling it "a total con job".

2 former NBC employees say anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted advances
The letter was circulated after former NBC News correspondent Linda Vester said she was "groped and assaulted by Tom Brokaw ". Ailes, who passed away a year ago , left Fox News in 2016 amid sexual harassment allegations that he repeatedly denied .

"Trump used his national and global audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms Clifford", the filing to a NY federal court reads.

Clifford argues that Mr. Trump's statement paints her as a liar and that it has exposed her "to hatred, contempt, ridicule, and shame, and discouraged other from associating or dealing with her".

The new lawsuit, which includes compensatory and punitive damages to be decided by a jury, seeks more than $75,000 in damages.

"Mr. Trump's statement is false and defamatory", according to the lawsuit.

Rodgers 'surprised' by Gerrard's Rangers link

She told CBS News' 60 minutes programme that following the end of the relationship, a man approached her and her daughter in a Las Vegas auto park and told her to "forget the story, leave Donald Trump alone". "Trump thinks that he can kind of say anything about anybody to anybody. Forget the story, '" Daniels told CNN in March.

And now, she's diving further down the legal rabbit hole over a tweet by the U.S. president saying that she was she was playing a "con job" on the media. The law firm represents Cohen, which could put the campaign "on shaky legal ground", said Stephen Spaulding, an executive at the nonprofit watchdog Common Cause.

The porn star first sued the president on March 6, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she said was created to hide the affair is invalid because the president never signed it.

The presidential tweet was notable in that it was one of the first times Trump has acknowledged Daniels's claims.
