Trump: Stormy Daniels Sketch Is A ‘Total Con Job’

President Donald Trump expressed skepticism at porn star Stormy Daniels’ release of a sketch of a man who supposedly threatened her to keep silent about her alleged affair with the President.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump tweeted. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

Daniels has repeatedly claimed that a man approached her and her daughter at a Las Vegas casino in 2011 and threatened her to not discuss her alleged 2006 affair with Trump.

“A guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story” she said in an interview with CBS’ “60 minutes.” “‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.'”

Daniels and her lawyer released a sketch of the alleged attacker Tuesday during an appearance on ABC’s The View. Trump has been largely reticent to discuss the Daniels case but recently denied having an affair with her in a gaggle with reporters.
