President Donald Trump has avoided both the press and the American people at the same time as adult film star Stormy Daniels has come forward to tell her story about an alleged affair with the billionaire president.
CNN's Manu Raju noted in a tweet that Wednesday marks the fifth day in a row that Trump has refused to schedule any public events.

The last time Trump held a public event was the Friday before CBS aired a tell-all interview with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. At that time, the president held an on-camera signing of a budget bill.
The White House communications team has also scheduled three on-camera briefings in the five days that Trump has been out of the public eye.
