Live updates from the Trump trial as Stormy Daniels testifies today

Daniels testified that her friend encouraged her to take Trump up on his dinner offer, saying, “What could possibly go wrong?”

He said he agreed to go and went to meet Trump at the hotel where he was staying.

“I went down and went upstairs. Keith gave me very specific instructions to take the elevator that went to the penthouse floor,” Daniels testified in Trump’s defense. He said security told him Trump was waiting for him inside. He walked in and there was a “big, beautiful wooden table” with flowers waiting in the lobby. He said that’s where he met Trump.

“He was wearing silk or satin pajamas, and I immediately made fun of him and said, ‘Did Mr. Hefner know you stole his pajamas?'” Daniels recalled. “I told him to go get changed and so I did it very politely.”

Trump returned in his shirt and pants, he testified. The hotel suite was “three times the size of my apartment,” Daniels said, describing the room in detail.

Finally, they sat down at the dining table.

“It wasn’t even dark outside and he said, ‘You know, it’s a little early, would you mind talking to each other?'” she recalled, saying they talked about her childhood and “got … dating-your-type stuff.”

They also discussed her work, according to Daniels: “He was very interested in how I went from just being a porn star to writing and directing… He was very interested in some of the business aspects of it, which I thought was cool. How much do you get for unions?

Daniels also said they had a “very brief” discussion about his wife, Melania. “He said, ‘Don’t worry about it, we’re not actually sleeping in the same room,'” she told the court.

During the conversation, Daniels recalled, Trump would “ask me questions and then not let me finish the answer — almost as if he wanted to connect with me, talk about himself.”

Finally, he said, “I’ve had enough of his arrogance and cutting me off and not giving me my dinner.” She testified that she asked him, “Are you always this rude?” And said, “Someone must hit you.”

Daniels testified that Trump gave him the magazine. “I don’t think he expected that from me,” she said. “So I said, ‘Turn around,’ and I hit him … right in the butt.”

The conversation turned to the “apprentice”, – recalled Daniels. Trump told her she should be a contestant, to which she replied, “There’s no way NBC is going to let an adult actor on television.”

“He said, ‘You remind me of my daughter, she’s smart and beautiful and people underestimate her,'” Daniels said. She added that Trump offered to tell her in advance what the challenges were for the show: “I can’t beat you … but You can still put on a good show.”

Daniels said he and Trump spoke for “about two hours” in the suite.

In addition, the court took a break. Trump did not look at Daniels as he testified.
