President Trump wants porn star Stormy Daniels to pay more than $340,000 in legal fees. Daniels' defamation suit against Trump was recently thrown out of court and a California judge awarded "reasonable" attorneys fees to the President. In a court filing this week, Trump's camp argued that the defamation case was politically motivated and was an attempt to raise Daniels' media profile.
The defamation case is unrelated to Daniels' lawsuit against Trump challenging the validity of a $130,000 hush money payment she received from former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen days. The payment came days before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels has alleged that she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump has denied the accusation.
