As the hush money trial involving former US President Donald Trump gets underway, Stormy Daniels's husband said that they will likely flee the United States if he is acquitted. 

Daniels's husband, Barrett Blade told CNN that "I don't think it gets better for her. I think if it's not guilty, we got to decide what to do. Good chance we'll probably vacate this country." 

Trump is charged with business records to cover up a $1,30,000 payment made at that time to porn star Stormy Daniels, who was threatening to go public with her story of their 2006 sexual encounter. It was alleged that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen was tasked with giving the payment.

Blade’s remark comes after Daniels testified in the hush money trial last week. "I don’t see it as a win situation either way," said Blade. He also pointed out the hate she is set to face from Trump supporters even if he is found guilty. 

“I know that we would like to get on with our lives. I know that she wants to move past this. We just want to do what I guess you’d say normal people get to do in some aspects but I don’t know if that ever will be, you know, and it breaks my heart.”

Daniels’s testimony detailed the sexual encounters she had with Trump. Fearing for her life, she arrived in the court wearing a bulletproof vest as she feared what "some nut might do to her." 

“She was paralyzed with fear — not of taking the stand or telling her story, but what might some nut might do to her,” said her attorney, Clark Brewster. “And I’m genuinely concerned about it as well,” reported The New York Post.
