Magazine Obtains Ex-Playboy Playmate's Account of Trump Affair

Donald Trump State of the Union

McDougal said she met Trump at a party for "The Apprentice" in 2006 and told The New Yorker in a hand-written note that he "immediately took a liking to me". "We got naked + had sex", McDougal wrote in a note provided to The New Yorker by her friend John Crawford.

"It included a $150,000 payment to McDougal from American Media Inc., publisher of the National Enquirer, which never printed her story about Trump". According to the article, this is a tactic that David Pecker, the CEO and chairman of AMI and friend of Trump, would use whenever a story about Trump's affairs would surface.

Mr Trump was obsessed with his accomplishments, sending Ms McDougal favourable articles about his businesses and showering her with merchandise from his golf courses, according to Farrow's article.

"President Trump has acquired a reputation for paying people off in exchange for sex", New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow said in interviews as the story exploded on U.S. networks.

The report is a new headache for the Trump administration, which is already struggling to contain the backlash over how it handled the resignation of top aide Rob Porter, whose two ex-wives accused him of domestic abuse.

Melania Trump's absence was especially notable given her tendency to disappear from the president's side when allegations of his past indiscretions surface. "But now I pray to live right, and make right with the wrongs that I have done", she said.

How many Russians did the United States of America kill in Syria?
Its plan was to form a constitutional committee that includes representatives from government, opposition and independent groups. It saw 500 pro-Syrian regime forces assaulted US-backed forces in what the United States called an " unprovoked attack ".

Additional reports following the 2016 election confirmed that the president and first lady do not sleep in the same bedroom. She's quoted in the New Yorker piece saying: "Every girl who speaks is paving the way for another".

In January 2017, McDougal had her breast implants removed, citing declining health that she believed to be connected to the implants. CBS News asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders previous year if Mr. Trump's accusers are all lying.

The former Playboy model told Farrow that the #MeToo movement emboldened her to come forward with her story, despite fears of legal retaliation.

Far from the matter of Russian meddling, Trump's troubles closer home front are swirling out of control, with Melania Trump increasingly choosing to avoid public appearances with the US President. This week, Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, said he paid Clifford $130,000 with his own money in October 2016 as part of a deal that would keep her from publicly discussing her account. She claims that as the affair continued, Trump introduced her to his family and took her to his private residences.

Common Cause has filed a Federal Election Commission complaint alleging the payment was an illegal campaign contribution, which Cohen denies.

He won the presidency despite accusations of sexual harassment or assault by more than a dozen women, along with an Access Hollywood audiotape of Trump boasting that his star power allowed him to grab women by their genitals.
