In a previous interview with Anderson Cooper on CBS' "60 Minutes", Daniels said she was in a Las Vegas parking lot preparing to head into a fitness class when a man approached her and her infant daughter.

The sketch reveal and a $100,000 reward leading to his identification were announced by Daniels andAvenatti on ABC's " The View" on Tuesday morning.

Michael Avenatti, who's representing Daniels, tweeted a response to the president - and warned Trump he might be under FBI investigation for past frauds.

Trump's tweet quotes another Twitter user that includes a photo of a man who is purportedly Daniels' ex-partner who the user suggests resembles the figure in the sketch.

The federal raid, carried out a week ago in New York City, sought bank records, information on Cohen's dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen's communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments he made in 2016 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and to Daniels, both of whom allege relationships with Trump.

On "The View", Daniels said one of the main reasons she did not go to the police after the incident was that she had not disclosed her alleged affair with Trump to her husband and was "embarrassed". He has played by a different set of rules, or should we say, no rules at all, ' Daniels told the crowd.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, says she didn't report the alleged threat at the time because she was scared.

"I didn't want everyone to know". "I didn't want my family to find out that way".

Besides supporting Trump on his show, Hannity reportedly talks to the president regularly and, last week, Trump even tweeted out a promotion, telling his followers that Hannity was going to have a big show coming up. "I am all good".

Mr. Avenatti also tweeted on Wednesday, saying that evidence collected in an F.B.I. raid on Mr. Cohen's office and residences would show documents and recordings "showing con job after con job".

Daniels acknowledged making more money and said she was being booked more, though she admitted to not liking the "Make America Horny Again" name attached to her strip club appearances, calling it "cheesy".

Ms Daniels responded by filing a revised U.S. federal lawsuit accusing Mr Cohen of defamation.

The White House has also said Trump does not believe any of Daniels' claims. Mr. Avenatti has said that the president's denial only helps his client's case. She called it "cheesy" and said the idea came from one of the clubs where she made an appearance.

"'I don't have time for these silly questions, ' he said".

Daniels has been outspoken about the alleged affair with the president despite the non-disclosure agreement that was part of the payment from Cohen.
