Stormy Daniels

On January 12, 2018, The Wall Street Journal reported that in October 2016, just before the 2016 United States presidential election, U.S. President Donald Trump had arranged payment of $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to stop her disclosing an affair they had in 2006.

“On the morning that I took this picture there was a mad scrum outside the courthouse to get a picture of Stormy Daniels. She didn’t enter the regular entrance of a media gauntlet that was set up for her. I placed myself by a window where I saw her passing through the metal detector. Shooting through the window was difficult but I was able to make the frame.”
