President Donald Trump has paid tribute to his wife Melania, calling her his ‘rock’ and ‘foundation’, in an email asking supporters to celebrate her birthday and donate to his campaign.
In the email he wrote: ‘Family is one of life’s most wonderful pleasures, and serving as America’s First Family has been a truly great privilege! This month, our family is looking forward to a very special day.’
‘Please join us in celebrating the First Lady and my beautiful, kind-hearted and exceptional wife Melania’s birthday by signing her card.
‘Melania is my rock and foundation, and I wouldn’t be the man I am today without her by my side.’
‘She’s the cornerstone of our family, and an incredible mother to our son, Barron. I’m so proud of her accomplishments, and I hope you’ll wish her well on her special day.’
He shared his affectionate comments about the First Lady amid the scandal over claims by porn star Stormy Daniels that they had an affair.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, payed the adult actress $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the president.
She also went on CBS’ 60 Minutes last month to reveal the details of their alleged tryst to Anderson Cooper.
Cohen has petitioned the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, seeking a temporary restraining order to delay prosecutors’ review of documents and devices seized in the raid, claiming it’s protected by attorney-client privilege.
Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti has said the porn star will attend Michael Cohen’s court hearing on Monday.
Avenatti believes some of the documents seized on April 9 relate to Daniels, he said on Friday from the courthouse.
He followed those comments up with a suggestive tweet that ‘the weather forecast for Mon looks very Stormy.’
Cohen previously admitted paying Daniels $130,000, which she said was payment in exchange for an agreement not to discuss an affair she claims to have had with the president.
When news first broke that it was suspected Daniels and Trump had an affair around the time of the birth of his youngest son Barron, Daniels denied the sexual relationship.
However, after Cohen spoke about paying Daniels $130,000, she claimed the agreement had been breached, setting her free to tell her story about her alleged physical encounters with the president.
Trump has denied that he had an affair with Daniels, and also claims she made that he had her threatened to remain quiet about their alleged romantic relationship.
But in an interview with Anderson Cooper for CBS’s 60 Minutes that aired on March 25, Daniels recounted the experience.
