"If Mr. Trump runs four more times, I would vote for him every time," Sheila Gregory, 64, told The Dallas Morning News.

"I like him. I like the way he handles things. It's time this country is put back where it belongs — taking care of the people here instead of the people who don't belong here."

Gregory, who lives in Baton Rouge, told the Morning News that she and Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, had been estranged for years, and that she did not approve of her daughter's choices.

She said she hopes to reunite with her daughter, eventually. 

"I loved her dearly," Gregory said. "I still love her dearly."

Daniels has been at the center of a controversy surrounding a $130,000 payment from Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, which she alleges was intended to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump more than a decade ago.

Cohen has acknowledged that he made the payment, which came just weeks before the 2016 presidential election, but insists that the money came from him personally, and was not tied to Trump's presidential campaign.

Daniels is suing to break a nondisclosure agreement that she says prevents her from talking about her alleged affair with Trump, arguing that the deal was never valid because Trump did not sign the paperwork.
