Washington D.C. [USA], Mar 26 (ANI): US First Lady and wife of President Donald Trump, Melania will remain in the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, while the former will return to Washington D.C. on Sunday, the White House said.

The first lady will be staying in Florida as is their tradition for spring break," White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

President Trump and his wife spent the weekend at the Florida resort. He is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday evening, The Hill reported.

Amidst this, American TV programme "60 Minutes" will air its interview with adult-film star Stormy Daniels at 7 pm (local time), who claims that she had a sexual encounter with President Trump, shortly after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.

However, the US President has denied the affair with Daniels. His wife has also not commented on the allegations.

Daniels's account of her alleged affair with President Trump has remained in the spotlight since The Wall Street Journal reported in January that President Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, paid Daniels USD 130,000 in October 2016 as part of a nondisclosure agreement.

Cohen acknowledged making the payment and added that it had nothing to do with the US President's campaign in the 2016 election, as it did not violate campaign finance laws.

On March 6, Daniels filed a civil lawsuit against President Trump claiming the nondisclosure agreement, which contains details about her alleged nine-month affair with the latter is "invalid" because the US President had "never signed it."

In response, President Trump's team sued Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claiming that "she violated the agreement."

On Friday, former Playboy model named Karen McDougal in a CNN interview claimed that President Trump had tried to offer her money after they allegedly went intimate.

Further, McDougal expressed regret and apologised to Melania for her alleged encounter with the US President.

However, the White House refuted claims that President Trump had an affair with the Playboy model. (ANI)
