AM Links: Trump, Tariffs, Stormy Daniels

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made clear Friday she has nothing else to say about the alleged affair between President Donald Trump and porn actress Stormy Daniels.

Donald Trump will visit California next week, his first visit to the Golden State as president, the White House announced on Wednesday.

"The invitation has been extended and accepted, and that stands".

Trump has not publicly addressed the alleged illicit dalliance. "Everybody is laughing about him giving her $130,00, if it came from him, but he will get a ten-fold return on that money if in fact she speaks and violates this agreement".

It's par for the course for a porn actress to use a pseudonym, but why did Cohen use an alias (Denny Dennison) for Trump in the nondisclosure agreement? It is the first time the White House has admitted the President was involved in any way with Daniels.

CNN reported Trump is upset with the press secretary for her remarks about the arbitration ruling.

"It is mere common sense that there is no way that an attorney would engage in a negotiation finalization and payment pursuant to an agreement and not disclose it to the client", said Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti.

"This case has already been won in arbitration and anything beyond that I would refer you to the President's outside counsel", Sanders added.

Clifford, who wants to go public with her story, is contesting the legality of the confidentiality agreement.

"Can I just say one thing about her?" The suit alleges Trump "purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge of the "Hush Agreement" " or the affair.

Sanders did not give details of the trip, confirming only that Trump "will be headed to California next week".

She filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Trump, saying a "hush" agreement she signed was invalid because Trump never signed it.

"It's sort of been a double-edged sword", she said. On Wednesday afternoon, he tweeted a photo of himself, Clifford and Anderson Cooper standing in front of what looks like a camera set.
