"I didn't want him to think I was a bad mom or that I put my daughter in danger", she said on "The View". However, at the age of 17 Daniels was persuaded to perform in a strip club and says she "made enough money on two songs to make more than I did all week answering phones at the riding stable that I worked at".
Daniels said on "The View" that she continues to speak out, despite the $20 million damages threat, because "I'm exhausted of being threatened".
Others had different ideas on who the man portrayed in the sketch could be.
"I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter", Clifford said.
Daniels said she took the comment as a direct threat.
"Then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a handsome little girl". If Daniels can demonstrate that she was threatened before signing the nondisclosure agreement in October 2016, then she might have a better shot at voiding the contract.
Artist Lois Gibson, of Houston, drew the composite sketch, released by Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti. But after Trump's attorney Michael Cohen threatened to sue the media company, it didn't run the story, CBS reported.
She said that she didn't approach the police because then she would have been forced to reveal to the police department, and the world, that "I had sex with Donald Trump".
"For years, Mr. Cohen has acted like he is above the law", Daniels said Monday.
Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's personal attorney, crosses E. 61st St. near the Loews Regency hotel on Park Ave on April 13, 2018 in New York City. All of that costs money, however, and Daniels has turned to legal crowdfunding site CrowdJustice, where she has raised an astonishing $310,000 in under a month.
Daniels said on The View that she's waited until now to try to find the culprit because she was scared, and because at the time she hadn't told her husband, who was Crain. McCain felt Daniels' presence at the hearing was questionable since she "didn't have anything to do with the case".
Among his dealings, Cohen arranged a $1.6-million payment to secure the silence of a former Playboy model who said she became pregnant by Broidy, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday.
When asked about what Trump said on Air Force One about Daniels and Cohen, Daniels indicated it was absurd. "If he walked in this door right now, I would instantly know".
