US President Donald Trump lashed out at porn star Stormy Daniels in his first substantive comments over the scandal surrounding the woman who says she slept with him and was paid to keep quiet.
A day after Daniels released an artist's sketch of a man she said threatened her years ago in a Las Vegas parking lot and told her not to talk about the alleged affair, Trump tweeted: "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man."
He added: "A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it!)."
Daniels, 39 also offered a $100,000 reward for any information about the unidentified man.
Daniels, in an interview on ABC's "The View," described the legal threats from Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen as bullying. Last week, FBI agents confiscated documents in a raid on Cohen's offices. Some of the documents seized were reportedly relate to a payment of $130,000 that Cohen admits making to Daniels, who claims she had a one-night stand with Trump in July 2006 in Lake Tahoe. Trump has denied any knowledge of the hush agreement.
