Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is fighting a 2016 non-disclosure agreement arranged by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in which she got $130,000 to keep quiet about her claim she had sex with Trump a decade earlier, something the U.S. president has denied.
During an appearance on the daytime ABC television talk show "The View" she was asked on Tuesday why she was speaking out.
"I'm tired of being threatened," Daniels responded. "I'm done. I'm sorry, I'm done being bullied."
On Tuesday, her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, asked the public for help identifying the man and offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to his identification.
The picture shows a lightly-bearded man in his 20s or 30s with backswept hair and wearing a hoodie. Daniels said she thought he looked like somebody's husband and described him as "sort of handsome."
Trump's lawyers are seeking at least $20 million in damages from Daniels for multiple violations of a nondisclosure agreement.
Daniels appearance on the ABC show came a day after she attended a hearing in Manhattan federal court where Cohen sought to limit the ability of federal prosecutors to review the documents seized in April 9 raids on his home, office and hotel room.
The raids stem in part from a separate probe into possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. A source familiar with the raids said the FBI agents were also looking for information on payments to Daniels among materials related to Cohen's other business dealings.
Daniels acknowledged the publicity the case has brought her and said that, while she was making more money, her expenses were climbing as well. She has had to retain a team of bodyguards, as well as a tutor for her daughter.
