Another week in the Trump administration, another tell-all book.

The latest tome targeting President Trump is by adult film star Stormy Daniels, who says she had a sexual relationship with the reality star-turned-commander-in-chief and will detail it in the book.

"Full Disclosure" will be released Oct. 2, Daniels announced on ABC's "The View" Wednesday morning.

"You were only with Donald Trump like, for what, two times?" asked co-host Joy Behar. "How much can you disclose?"

"There's a lot in the book," replied Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. "But the book isn't just about that. That doesn't define me ... Everybody who knows me, and has known me for a long time, knows that I've been working on a book for about 10 years. So I just sort of melded everything together. I've kept notebooks. The adventures I've had on the road and in strip clubs and stuff. It'll blow your mind."

Daniels, who said that she had sex with Trump once in 2006 and was paid $130,000 as part of a hush agreement made days before the 2016 election, said she'll also share details of the night she says she spent with Trump.

As for Daniels' reaction to Trump's ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitting in court that he made a payment to her in coordination with Trump, Daniels said she felt vindicated.

"I was so overwhelmed I just broke down into sobs ... I just felt like all this weight came off my shoulders," she told the panelists.

Daniels' book is the latest blow to the White House, which has already weathered the fallout from books by author Michael Wolff, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward and an anonymous "resistance" op-ed in the New York Times last week.
