Stormy Daniels says she only had sex with Donald Trump one time and while she claims it was consensual, she didn’t want to do it.
During her interview on Sunday night’s “60 Minutes,” Daniels told Anderson Cooper that she first met Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in July of 2006. She says he invited her to dinner and she met him in his hotel suite.
Daniels claims Trump suggested she could appear on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but she felt he was just using it to get close to her.
At one point in the conversation, Daniels says he compared her to Ivanka Trump.
“He was like, ‘Wow, you, you are special. You remind me of my daughter,'” she explained. “You know, he was like, ‘You’re smart and beautiful, and a woman to be reckoned with, and I like you. I like you.'”
They had dinner in his hotel room, she says, and after using the restroom following dinner, Daniels she came out to find Trump sitting on the edge of the bed.
“I realized exactly what I’d gotten myself into. And I was like, ‘Ugh, here we go,'” she told Cooper. “And I just felt like maybe, it was sort of, I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone’s room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, ‘Well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.'”
Daniels says had sex with Trump and while it was consensual, she did not want to do it.
She says the two didn’t see each other again until July of 2017. She says Trump once again danged appearing on “The Celebrity Apprentice” in front of her, but nothing ever came of it. The two did not have sex during this second meeting and they never saw each other again.
Daniels described an incident in 2011, after she’d agreed to tell her story to In Touch magazine, where she claims she was threatened in Las Vegas by a man who approached her while she was with her daughter.
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” she says. “And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”

She says she was too scared to go to the police.
As for why she felt the need to tell her story now, Daniels says, “Because people are just saying whatever they wanted to say about me, I was perfectly fine saying nothing at all, but I’m not okay with being made out to be a liar, or people thinking that I did this for money and people are like, “Oh, you’re an opportunist. You’re taking advantage of this. Yes, I’m getting more job offers now, but tell me one person who would turn down a job offer making more than they’ve been making, doing the same thing that they’ve always done?”
