"The first time they had sex, Trump tried to pay her by handing her a wad of cash after which McDougal cried in the backseat while being chauffeured home by Trump's bodyguard". "What can you say except 'I'm sorry?'" she responded.
"If you're in a loving relationship, do you try and collect evidence?" she said. Or is this a normal thing?' I didn't know, but I looked at him and said, 'That's not me.
Trump has denied the affair, which McDougal says occurred shortly after Melania gave birth to Barron Trump. "She's lovely. That's his daughter", McDougal said. At the outset, McDougal said, "I was attracted to him, yes".
'So I left, and I got into the auto and started crying. I was really sad. "That's my president. I did not want to damage him or hurt him in any way, shape or form, but I also didn't want to put out the story because I didn't want my reputation to be damaged".
Earlier this week, McDougal sued American Media to be released from an agreement that prohibits her from speaking about an alleged extramarital affair elsewhere.

"I just had this look, I just- I don't even know how to describe the look on my face".
She also spoke of having her photo taken with Trump, Melania and his daughter Ivanka at a party. Trump's cheating was detailed by Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal in an eye-opening interview on CNN last night.
Now, the actress and model has given her first televised interview about the intimate encounters she claims they shared more than a decade ago.
However, McDougal might have a firmer leg to stand on than Daniels, making her story a more significant obstacle for the president.
She said when she asked why, the response she received was: '[It's] probably because of you'.
While the alleged affair dates to 2006, the agreement was only made in 2016, when Trump was running for the presidency. She says she broke it off in April 2007 because she felt guilty. "He would call me baby or he would call me attractive Karen", she reveals about the nicknames Trump had for her.
According to McDougal's lawsuit, AMI, which owns the National Enquirer and Us Weekly, paid her $150,000 in 2016 for the rights to her story about her alleged affair.
McDougal added that she cried during the auto ride home. "There were real feelings", she said.
