Stormy Daniels, the adult movie star who has said she had an affair with Donald Trump has lashed out at Republicans for sharing an old article of her where she apparently apologised to the president.

The 41-year-old star reportedly signed a non-disclosure agreement given to her by Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, during the 2016 presidential election, in order to keep information about Trump's relationship with Daniels and another woman from the public.

Despite this, both parties still dispute whether the affair actually happened and it has made Daniels a target for Trump supporters, especially as she has taken every opportunity that she can to ridicule the president.

On Tuesday, she was the subject of a series of tweets from conservatives, who shared a 2018 from the right-leaning in which she reportedly apologised to Trump and admitted that the affair didn't happen.

Despite the story being two years old, it was widely shared by many accounts, all calling on Daniels to offer an apology to Trump.

However, there is a problem here.

Not only is this story being fairly old now, but Daniels has said that the quotes come from a statement that was written by Cohen when she was still being "bullied and was afraid to speak out" and that she hadn't wavered the story since she came forward.

She also added that she would "never apologise to that monster" and is standing by everything that she has said since she spoke out. In response to a few of the tweets she wrote:

During this flurry of tweets, Daniels also said that even though she admits that she made a mistake in her past, that she "owns" what has happened.

As Vox reports, Daniels did initially deny the alleged affair with Trump but the March 2018 lawsuit that she filed against the president 'served as confirmation on her part of the affair.'
