With Stormy Daniels' interview set for Sunday night on "60 Minutes", here is a scorecard of possible names that might be mentioned during the adult film star's chat with Anderson Cooper. She is expected to reveal details of the affair she claims she had with Trump in 2006.

"Being in the adult industry, I've developed a thick skin and maybe a little bit of a dark sense of humour", she told The Washington Post at the weekend.

In January, The Wall Street Journal was first to report that Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Daniels $130,000 before the 2016 election.

Daniels - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford - said she was trying to take it all in her stride. Daniels claims a right to discuss her relationship with Trump, alleging that the NDA she signed is invalid because Trump did not sign it himself.

Daniels admitted to the Post that this current media fame has cut into her other interests.

"Without a doubt it's cutting into my horse show time", said Ms Daniels, who is an avid equestrian. 'And time with friends'. In 2016, during the final months of the presidential campaign, she again started talking to media outlets, though she did not give another interview.

President Harry Truman created the NSC in 1947 as an advisory body on national security and foreign policy matters. Before he became U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Mr Bolton spoke about the "failure" of the global body.

"I didn't do this to get any sort of approval from anyone or recognition", she said.

Daniels was paid $130,000 by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of a non-disclosure agreement that she signed shortly before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, leading to allegations that the payment amounted to an illicit contribution to Trump's campaign.

Each violation of the agreement carries a penalty of US$1 million (S$1.3 million).

Cohen said he intends to collect more than $20million from the porn star by the time the lawsuit is through.

His advisers have reportedly told Trump that commenting on the allegations would be inappropriate for him to do as president.
