Former Playboy model Karen McDougal speaks out about 2006 affair with Trump

Donald Trump State of the Union

A New Yorker report delves into the details of an alleged 2006 affair between President Donald Trump and a former Playboy model.

On Friday, The New Yorker published new details about an alleged affair between President Trump and a Playboy model, which reportedly took place soon after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.

McDougal was prepared to tell her side of the story, but was prevented from doing as much through a concerning tactic.

McDougal, who was Playmate of the Month in December 1997 and Playmate of the Year in 1998, says Trump kept telling her she was handsome and was really impressed by the reality TV star and real estate mogul. "We talked for a couple hours, then it was on", she wrote. "In fact, every time I flew to meet him, I booked/paid for flight + hotel + he reimbursed me".

In July 2006, McDougal met Trump at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California, where he allegedly also had sex with porn star Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels.

However, the New Yorker claims to have obtained a hand-written account of the affair, which Ms McDougal confirmed to the magazine was in her own handwriting.

The White House says that Trump denies all of the allegations in the report, and called it "fake news".

Karen McDougal is the latest woman to come forward saying she had an affair with USA president Donald Trump while he was married to Melania.

Central to these efforts was the close relationship that Mr Trump maintained with American Media, Inc., the publisher of supermarket tabloid the National Enquirer.

"Her account provides a detailed look at how Trump and his allies used clandestine hotel-room meetings, payoffs, and complex legal agreements to keep affairs-sometimes multiple affairs he carried out simultaneously-out of the press", Farrow wrote.

In one instance, when McDougal toured Trump Tower, she recalled a moment when Trump pointed out Melania's separate bedroom.

The National Enquirer's publishing company paid McDougal $150,000 for her story about having an affair with Trump (left) while he was married to his wife Melania (right) - but never ran it, sources told the Wall Street Journal. The New Yorker says AMI has only published nine of nearly 100 promised columns.

A White House spokesman denied the affair in a statement to the magazine.

Trump's alleged infidelities have been public knowledge for years, and his tight relationship with AMI and its chief David Pecker have also been the subject of articles, but Farrow's story implies that the Enquirer functioned as a veritable protection racket for the president.

McDougal told the The New Yorker she regretted signing the contract.

A manager for Clifford has claimed the agreement is no longer valid because of Cohen's disclosure about the payment.

The former model says she worries what will happen now that she has chose to speak out, but says she was prompted to do so by the emergence of the Daniels revelations and the openness of the #MeToo movement.
