New Delhi: United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday called adult star Stormy Daniels a 'Horseface' and denounced her defamation lawsuit against him as a 'total con.' Taking to his Twitter handle, Trump wrote, "'Federal Judge throws out Stormy Daniel's lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.' @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con."
The US President's post comes after a federal judge dismissed the defamation lawsuitfiled by Daniels against him. She had filed the lawsuit following Trump's tweet in which he called her a "total con job" after she opened up about being threatened to keep shut about the story of her alleged affair with him.
While pronouncing the decision, District Judge S. James Otero had said that Daniels in her argument underlined that Trump's tweet "attacks the veracity of her account" of the incident and that Trump's statement was "false and defamatory because it charged her with committing a serious crime."
Daniels had earlier claimed that Trump had an affair with her in 2006. Otero not only dismissed the case but also ruled that Trump is entitled to attorney's fees.
