Donald Trump confident wife Melania could be replaced quickly, Michael Cohen claims

Donald Trump was confident he would be able to replace his wife Melania Trump quickly were she to divorce him after learning of his alleged affair with Stormy Daniels, according to Michael Cohen.

Cohen is the prosecution’s star witness in the hush money trial which sees the former president accused of 34 counts of falsifying business records in connection to payments the former fixer made to Daniels.

Trump has pleaded not guilty and repeatedly rejected allegations that he had had a sexual encounter with Daniels.

During his testimony, Cohen was asked how Trump had reacted after learning the adult film actress had been offering her account of their alleged encounter to the press one month before the US presidential elections of 2016.

Cohen claimed to have had a conversation with the former president on how things were going “upstairs” with his wife Melania Trump, to which Trump allegedly noted he would not be single for long were she to leave him.

He said Melania’s text read: “Good morning Michael, can u pls call DT on his cell. Thanks.”

Cohen tied Trump directly to the hush money scheme, recounting meetings and conversations with his then-boss about stifling negative stories in the waning weeks of the 2016 campaign.

Less than two weeks before the election, Cohen allegedly finalized the payments to buy Daniels’ silence. Immediately, he went to Trump to inform him the deal was done, he testified.

About another story of an alleged affair with former Playboy model Karen McDougal, Cohen said Trump told him: “Make sure it doesn’t get released.”

Cohen testified that he personally had no interest in acquiring the rights to McDougal’s story, telling jurors: “What I was doing was at the direction of and benefit of Mr. Trump.” Trump also denies having an affair with McDougal.
