Trump attacks Stormy Daniels as 'horseface', with the porn actress hitting back at the president, calling him 'tiny'

President Donald Trump is insulting the physical appearance of porn actress Stormy Daniels, calling her "Horseface" in a tweet about a recent legal ruling.

A federal judge dismissed Daniels' defamation lawsuit against Mr Trump.

Daniels alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and sued him in April. The defamation lawsuit came after Trump tweeted about a composite sketch of a man Daniels says threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about an alleged affair. He called it a "total con job."

The judge on Tuesday said Trump's tweet was a "hyperbolic statement" protected under the First Amendment.

President Trump tweeted: "Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer."

Daniels hit back on Twitter, calling him Tiny a tweet.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his … umm … shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny.”

Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti called Trump's comments "outrageous."

Trump has a history of derogatory comments about women's appearances.

The book will include details about her alleged affair, and non-disclosure agreement.

Aussie PM reportedly open to accepting New Zealand's offer to resettle 150 refugees from Nauru

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is reportedly open to accepting New Zealand's offer to resettle 150 refugees from Nauru if parliament signs off on a "lifetime ban" bill.

Under the bill, any refugee settled in a third country would be banned from entering Australia even under a tourist or business visa. The legislation has been stuck since November 2016.

"(It) is opposed by the Labor Party and the Greens and crossbench senators, which is preventing that protection being put in place and I would urge them to reconsider their position on that," Mr Morrison said.

The ban would prevent refugees who came by boat and settled in New Zealand from ending up in Australia. Fairfax Media says the government may put the bill to the vote this week.

The development comes as Labor drafted legislation in response to growing concerns by Australian doctors about the care provided to children and their families on Nauru.

They want to speed up the medical transfers of these refugees to Australia.

Three Liberal MPs have also taken the extraordinary step of demanding the prime minister get children off the Pacific island, citing serious fears about their health.

New Zealand will spend $3 million on essential services for refugees in Manus Island and Nauru detention centres. Source: 1 NEWS
