Melania should leave Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels tells media

 June 5, 2024

In a break from the media silence she had maintained since the former president's conviction on Thursday, Stormy Daniels has stated that Melania Trump should distance herself from Donald Trump, as Business Insider reported.

"I don't know what their agreement may or may not be, but Melania needs to leave him. Not because of what he did with me or other women but because he is a convicted felon," the adult film star said in an interview with The Mirror published over the weekend.

On Thursday, Trump was convicted of 34 counts of falsifying business documents in connection with a hush-money payment sent to Daniels, who alleges that she had a sexual encounter with him in 2006.

Daniels' Interview

In the interview, Daniels, whose actual name is Stephanie Clifford, was unreserved in her criticism of Trump.

"It's been proven he is abusive; he was found liable for sexual assault and tax fraud and is now a criminal," Daniels told The Mirror. "He's neither Teflon Don nor Teflon Con anymore."

A request for comment from Business Insider, which was sent outside of regular business hours, was not immediately responded to by representatives of Trump.

Trump's Brave Face

Despite the fact that Trump has maintained a defiant demeanor in the face of his mounting legal issues, his staff claim that he is frequently apprehensive about Melania Trump's responses to them.

Mary Jordan, a reporter for the Washington Post, wrote in her book "The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump" that Trump took two hours before deciding to see his wife after the release of the infamous "Access Hollywood" recording in 2016.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's former aide, testified to the House panel investigating the Capitol riot in November 2022 that Melania Trump was the only person Trump dreaded.

"He listens to many of us, but he reserves fear for one person, Melania Trump," Conway said.

Trump's Comments

The former president told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" in a pre-taped interview that aired Sunday that the Manhattan trial had taken a toll on his wife.

"She's fine, but I think it's very hard for her. I mean, she's fine, but she has to read all this crap," Trump said.

The absence of the former First Lady at the court case did not go unnoticed by those in the media. However, the former president's lead defense attorney said that the lack of presence by Melania Trump did not indicate a "lack of love and support."

“Their son was finishing school in Florida,” Todd Blanche told David Oscar Markus’s “For the Defense” podcast, which aired Sunday.“I don’t think that the lack of presence should be interpreted as a lack of love and support. It’s just lack of presence."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
