Stormy Daniels was ordered by a judge to be pay Donald Trump's legal fees after her defamation case against him was dismissed. The case was brought against Trump when he dismissed claims of her affair with him and called her a liar in a tweet.
Trump's lawyer, on the steps of the court today, claimed that the decision today means "total victory for the president and total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case." Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti disagreed, citing the fact that this case has always been secondary to the one where she claims to have been made to sign an NDA.
