The tweet from Trump comes a day after a federal judge in California handed the president a rare victory in his ongoing legal battles with Daniels.
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas.

Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti, who has been teasing a possible run for president against Trump in 2020, wasted little time in responding in kind to the insults, calling Trump a "disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States."
