(Meredith) -- A federal judge ordered Stormy Daniels to pay President Trump $293,052.33 to cover the fees in her defamation case.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said that Trump defamed her earlier this year when Trump tweeted a mocking statement about an alleged incident where a man threatened Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti released a forensic sketch of the suspect, which Trump compared to Daniels' ex-husband.

Trump's attorney, Charles harder told The Hill, the judge's decision was, "a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case."
