Trump rips ‘so much fake news’ after Stormy Daniels interview
President Trump on Monday ripped “so much fake news” in a tweet following the highly anticipated “60 Minutes” interview with adult-film star Stormy Daniels.
“So much Fake News. Never been more voluminous or more inaccurate,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“But through it all, our country is doing great!”

Daniels claims she had an affair with Trump before he was president and was paid a sum of money before the 2016 election to keep quiet. A lawyer for Trump has denied the alleged affair.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels’s lawyer, on Monday questioned why Trump is not tweeting about his client.
“Isn’t it interesting that we have a president that will tweet about the most mundane matters, but he won’t tweet about my client, the affair, the agreement or the $130,000 payment?” Avenatti told “CBS This Morning.”
“You know why he won’t tweet about it? Because it’s true. It’s 100 percent true.”
Trump earlier Monday tweeted about the economy, saying it is “looking really good.”
