In response to his indictment on 34 criminal charges for hush money payments, Stormy Daniels accused Donald Trump of cheating her out of a dinner offer during an interview with Piers Morgan, which aired on Thursday. Although she expressed sympathy for Mr. Trump’s arrest, she also called it “progress for women”. Regarding her own alleged affair with the former president, Ms. Daniels said, “He still owes me dinner!” Mr. Trump did not directly respond to the interview, but instead attacked other adversaries he frequently targets.
Earlier that Thursday, he criticized the Biden administration’s review of Afghanistan, which held him accountable for the chaos that occurred as the US left the country in August 2021. In a post on Truth Social, he wrote, “These morons in the White House, who are systematically destroying our country, headed up by the biggest moron of them all, Hopeless Joe Biden, have a new disinformation game they are playing – Blame ‘TRUMP’ for their grossly incompetent surrender in Afghanistan.”
Mr. Trump’s outburst followed his description of his arrest and arraignment as the “Best Day in History” when he became the first current or former US president ever charged with a crime.
