I've had to hire bodyguards, my daughter has to have a tutor. Do you care about what Donald Trump did before he became President? I'm done being bullied ...
Legal analysts have said that Mr Cohen's $130,000 payment to Ms Daniels could have violated the rules on financing Mr Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, said she did not report the threat at the time because she would have had to reveal the alleged affair and she was afraid. A suit filed by Daniels claims Trump never signed the agreement and therefore it is void.
Both appeared in a Manhattan courtroom Monday as Cohen and Trump's lawyers squared off against the Justice Department over whether federal prosecutors can view material the FBI seized last week in a raid of Cohen's offices and home.
During her television appearance, Daniels said she was with her infant daughter when the man walked up and said: "That's a attractive little girl". While she was there, for the first time ever a sketch of the man accused of threatening her to stay quiet about it was released to the public. "I understand that you're being sued by our president, but it does seem like you're benefitting a lot", McCain told Daniels.
At the time, Daniels had been shopping her affair story to tabloid magazines.
"I was embarrassed ... at that point, he didn't know [about the alleged Trump affair] ..."
"Yes, there's a lot of publicity, but I didn't do it for that, because this isn't what I want to be known for", Daniels said, adding that even though she's "making more money", she's "spending so much more".
The adult film star who alleges she had an affair with Donald Trump has unveiled a sketch of the man she claims threatened her in a auto park in 2011. They are offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the identification of the man.
"We're hopeful someone knows something", Avenatti said.
"And a guy walked up on me and said to me, "Leave Trump alone".
"I am dancing more". I had a passion project of mine in the works for the last several years to direct a horror movie and those people that were my investors have ghosted me.
At one point Daniels even said that she didn't select the name of her strip club tour, "Make America Horny Again".
Then on Tuesday morning, she appeared on The View to discuss the Trump scandal. He can be seen with Daniels here in an image from her Instagram.
"I thought he was someone's husband. he had his hands in his pocket. That's not why I did it", she explained.
