Hicks, visibly nervous and emotional, recounted her involvement in denying the Stormy Daniels allegations to the Wall Street Journal. “What I told to the Wall Street Journal is what was told to me,” Hicks said, indicating consistency in her statements.

During cross-examination by Trump’s attorney, Emil Bove, Hicks revealed that Trump was deeply concerned about the potential impact of the Stormy Daniels story on his family, particularly his wife, Melania Trump. Hicks testified that Trump requested newspapers not be delivered to his residence on the day the story was published, reflecting his desire to shield his family from embarrassment or hurt.

“I don’t think he wanted anyone in his family to be hurt or embarrassed by anything that was happening on the campaign trail. He wanted them to be proud of him,” Hicks stated during her testimony.

The trial has focused on allegations that Trump falsified business records to reimburse his lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels just days before the 2016 election. Prosecutors argue that Trump’s concern over the Daniels allegations, fueled by the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, led to the decision to make the payments.

Hicks’ testimony shed light on Trump’s personal motivations during a critical period of his campaign. It highlighted his desire to protect his family and maintain their pride amidst the turmoil caused by the Daniels allegations and subsequent media scrutiny.

The trial continues to captivate attention as it delves into the inner workings of Trump’s campaign and administration. Hicks’ emotional testimony added another layer to the unfolding narrative, providing valuable insights into Trump’s mindset and decision-making process during a tumultuous time in his political career
