According to a report in the Washington Post, Donald Trump is worried about what will come out about him in a 60 Minutes interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels on Sunday night, with the ratings and poll-obsessed president fearing his already shaky poll numbers could collapse even further.
With the lawyer for the porn star touting possible photos or video on a DVD that he has promoted on Twitter — the president has reportedly been complaining all week about the media coverage the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been receiving.
Trump has particularly taken notice of Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, who has been a continuous presence on cable news talk shows.
According to the report, Trump has been on the phones with friends and outside advisers attempting to gauge how much damage he’ll take on should the woman, who claims she had an affair with him, reveal details or photos that could possibly shake his administration more than an FBI investigation into his presidential campaign.
Sources note that Trump is particularly worried about his poll numbers plummeting even further if his base abandons him.
Trump is returning to the White House on Sunday prior to the highly anticipated CBS interview — with his wife, Melania, remaining at their Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for spring break with their youngest son, Barron.
