President Donald Trump wants Stormy Daniels to pay $342,000 for his attorney fees after defeating her defamation lawsuit.

The adult-movie star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford "filed this action, not because it had any merit, but instead for the ulterior purposes of raising her media profile, engaging in political attacks against the president by herself and her attorney, who has appeared on more than 150 national television news interviews attacking the President and now is exploring a run for the presidency himself in 2020," Trump said in a filing Monday in Los Angeles federal court.
