Stormy Daniels' lawyer has labelled Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani "an absolute pig" following comments Mr Giuliani made about the porn star. 

Mr Giuliani was attending an event in Tel Aviv on Wednesday when he commented on the credibility of Ms Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, because of her profession. 

The adult film star is suing the US President over a nondisclosure agreement she signed to keep quiet about an alleged affair they had. 

"The business you were in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight," Mr Giuliani said of Ms Daniels, CNN reports. 

"Explain to me how she could be damaged. I mean, she has no reputation. If you're going to sell your body for money, you just don't have a reputation. I may be old fashioned, I dunno."

In response to Mr Giuliani's comments, Ms Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN Mr Trump's attorney is an "absolute pig for making those comments".

Mr Giuliani said he respects women who work in porn, but respects a "career woman or a woman of substance" more.

Mr Avenatti said Mr Giuliani was basically "stating that women that engage in the adult film industry and other forms of pornography don't have reputations and are not entitled to respect".

"His comments are piggish, they are outrageous especially in today's day and age and he should be fired immediately by the President."

Mr Avenatti filed a lawsuit against Mr Trump on Ms Daniels' behalf in April, alleging Mr Trump tried to tarnish her reputation and credibility by dismissing her account of being threatened by a stranger in 2011 when she was set to go public about her affair with Mr Trump.
