The city of West Hollywood in California has declared today “Stormy Daniels Day” in honour of the adult film actress at the centre of a scandal involving President Donald Trump.
The mayor and members of the City Council will give the porn star the key to the city in a ceremony on Wednesday afternoon at the adult boutique Chi Chi LaRue’s.
Ms Daniels says she had an affair with Mr Trump in 2006 and has sued to invalidate the confidentiality agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.
