Stormy Daniels makes bold claim about Donald and Melania Trump during hush money trial

Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, took the stand Tuesday in Donald Trump‘s hush money trial.

During her testimony she told the story of how she got into exotic dancing before going into detail about her encounter with Trump in July 2006.

The adult film actress also seemed to confirm a piece of information about Trump’s relationship with his wife Melania.

When prompted, Daniels testified that Trump’s bodyguard Keith Schiller asked if she would go to dinner with Trump. While she said no at first, her publicist insisted, so Daniels agreed.

She took an elevator to the penthouse floor where she saw Schiller and a slightly ajar door to Trump’s room. When she walked into his suite, Trump was wearing satin pajamas.

Daniels told him to change, which he did, and then the two began having a conversation with Trump asking “very thought-out business questions” about Daniels’ work.

“He asked about the business aspects of it. Are there any unions, do you get residuals, how are people paid. Do you get health insurance. What about testing. Are you worried about STDs?” she recalled on the stand.

While Trump prodded Daniels about her personal life, the two only had a “very brief” conversation about Trump and his wife Melania who had only recently given birth to their son Barron.

She recalled asking Trump about Melania and commenting on her beauty. Daniels also remembered Trump saying, “We don’t sleep in the same room.”

In a 2018 Washington Post feature, a presidential insider revealed the then-president Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump did not share a bedroom.

First lady scholar Annette Dunlap told People the last time couples occupied separate bedrooms in the White House was Patricia and Richard Nixon, however prior to the 1970s, it wasn’t all that uncommon.

“It was kind of a European thing,” Dunlap said at the time. “The idea of sleeping in the same bed together in the late 19th century and into the early 20th century was a symbol of poverty, because you couldn’t afford your own bed or your own bedroom.”
