DONALD Trump claims he did not know about a $130,000 payment made to an adult porn who alleges they had an affair. And he finally addressed it!
The reporter then asked: "Then why did Michael Cohen make it, if there was no truth to her allegations?"
US President Donald Trump on Thursday made his first public comments about an alleged affair with actress Stormy Daniels, saying he did not know that his lawyer made a $130,000 (€106,000) payment to the adult star to keep her quiet.
This claim is one that Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, plans to prove is untrue.
Cohen, who acknowledged in February that he made the payment to Clifford, has maintained that Trump was unaware of the arrangement.
Mr Trump said he didn't know why his longtime lawyer made the payment or where he got the money. Daniels also signed a non-disclosure agreement. The strength of our case just went up exponentially, ' he wrote.

Officials from the Illinois Department of Public Health warn that contaminated products could be in any county across the state. Synthetic cannabinoids are sold in convenience stores, gas stations, drug paraphernalia shops, novelty stores and online.
However, Trump also took the time to answer some questions posed to him by reporters about the Stormy Daniels controversy. Earlier on Monday, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said that he could not "speak to the future of Scott Pruitt".
The White House has denied the accusations, which the actress says led to her being paid alongside the signing of a non-disclosure agreement, days before Trump was elected to the White House.
"As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath", he said.
Daniels upped the ante this week, with Avenatti claiming that parts of her recent "60 Minutes" interview were left on the cutting-room floor because the "conservative" program didn't want to air her claim that she could identify Trump's private parts. Trump has not spoken out about Stormy nor mentioned her on Twitter, even in the wake of her popular interview on CBS' 60 Minutes, which aired in March.
"Now it's not premature", Avenatti said, since the other side has since filed a motion to compel arbitration.
