Avenatti has rocketed to popularity as an attorney for Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star known as Stormy Daniels, and has billed himself as a thorn in the side of the Trumps. "We will appeal the dismissal of the defamation cause of action and are confident in a reversal", he tweeted.

She alleged a man approached her in a Las Vegas auto park in 2011 and threatened her after she agreed to talk about her experience with Trump in an interview.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against President Trump by adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claimed the president had defamed her earlier this year on Twitter.

"The Court agrees with Mr. Trump's argument because the tweet in question constitutes "rhetorical hyperbole" normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States", US District Court Judge Otero said in his opinion. "The First Amendment protects this kind of rhetorical statement", the judge wrote in his verdict.

Daniels also tweeted in response, saying Trump is has demonstrated a hatred of women in his tweet.
