We are all aware of the accusations made by Stormy Daniels to Donald Trump. Daniels is an adult-film actress who was on the radar of several mainstream news outlets in the initial days of the presidential campaign. During this period reporters from ABC, Fox News, the Daily Beast and Slate.com pursued a potentially explosive story stating that Daniels had allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006, only a couple months after Trump’s wife, Melania, had given birth to their son, Barron. Daniel’s story included multiple sexual assault allegations against Trump and the controversy over his vulgar remarks on the “Access Hollywood” video. However, no one really went with the story. Why exactly wasn’t the story reported at the presidential election time. Was it because it could have possibly intensified questions surrounding his character before the public gave in their vote? Although the news has gone completely viral, the White House has denied that this affair existed.
To add to that, Daniels made a statement on how Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen had created a limited liability company to pay Daniels $130,000 ahead of the 2016 presidential election as part of a “hush agreement” to keep quiet about the alleged affair with Trump. Daniels also stated that she was forced to sign the document and her legal team including her attorney Michael Avenatti said that the agreement is invalid as it was never signed by Trump. With the White House refusing to answer if Trump was aware of porn star payment, are they trying to cover Trump’s tracks or are they trying to avoid a falsified statement made by Daniels?
And the latest on this news trail would be the fact that Daniels’ attorney Avenatti has filed a motion in federal court seeking to depose Trump and Cohen to inquire about the $130,000 payout before the election. To add to that, Michael Cohen stated that his counterpart in the Daniels lawsuit is a “PR machine” for the adult-film star who is suing the president to admit details of their alleged affair.
With an influx of news segments surrounding this fiasco cropping up in media outlets, it is pretty much a big deal for citizens in USA. Because, at the end of the day, the voice of citizens DO matter, and everyone has a democratic right to express how they feel about a certain situation prevalent within the country, especially when it involves the president of it.
To understand public opinion, we ran a pretty cool survey through our emojot platform to understand the voice of citizens and how they truly feel about this situation. We inquired as to who they thought was telling the truth? Trump or Daniels. And, thus far Daniels takes the lead with 66% (Trump is lagging behind with 28%). A majority of respondents belong to the boomers’ category with a higher percentage (50%) of respondents being male and (49%) being female. Most of these respondents stated that they feel that Daniels was the truthful one. Pretty cool isn’t it?
And, hold on, if you want to take the survey, you still can. We aren’t done running the survey yet 😊
