First lady Melania Trump has canceled her planned trip to Switzerland with her husband, President Donald Trump, due to "scheduling issues."
Donald Trump will be appearing at the annual gathering of industrialists, investors and billionaires at the World Economic Forum in Davos without the first lady after his wife abruptly canceled her travel plans, CNN reported.
"It was determined there were too many scheduling and logistical issues, so Mrs. Trump will not travel to Davos," Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told the Daily Mail.
News of the first lady's canceled travel plans comes shortly after multiple reports surfaced of Donald Trump's alleged affair with adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, otherwise known as Stormy Daniels.
According to a 2011 interview with In Touch Weekly magazine, Clifford claimed she had sex with Donald Trump in 2006 after meeting him at a celebrity golf tournament. The magazine published a transcript of that interview.
Clifford described the sexual encounter as "textbook generic." Donald Trump was married to Melania Trump at the time, and she had just given birth to their son Barron.
"The sex was nothing crazy. He wasn’t like, chain me to the bed or anything. It was one position," Clifford said, according to the transcript. "I can definitely describe his junk perfectly, if I ever have to. He definitely seemed smitten after that. He was like, 'I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?'"
The adult film star added that he even compared her to his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
"Yup. He bragged about his daughter quite a bit though. He was very proud of her, which is nice," Clifford said. "He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful and smart just like his daughter. She is smart and beautiful, so I guess that’s a compliment. But as far as family, that’s all he ever said. He definitely is very proud of her, as he should be."
According to The Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, arranged a $130,000 payment to Clifford during the 2016 election to keep her quiet about her alleged affair with him, the Daily Mail reports.
Cohen has since issued a statement from Clifford denying that she ever received any "hush money," adding that the president "once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels."
Vice President Mike Pence told The Associated Press during his visit to Jerusalem that he was "not going to comment on the latest baseless allegations against the President," the New York Daily News reports.
Clifford will be starting her "Make America Horny Again" tour in South Carolina at the end of the month.
