Daniels, the release reads, has "proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation."

The city will also proclaim May 23 "Stormy Daniels Day" in her honor, according to the press release.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Trump and his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, alleging that the two defamed her by denying an affair that she claims she had with Trump in 2006.

Cohen's $130,000 payment to Daniels, as part of a nondisclosure agreement, in the days leading up to the 2016 presidential election has also drawn scrutiny as to whether it constituted an in-kind donation to the Trump campaign. Trump's legal team has denied that the payment violated campaign finance law.
