Trump says he did not know about $130000 payment to Stormy Daniels

A reporter asked Trump regarding the payment: "Then why did Michael Cohen make it, if there was no truth to her allegations?"

"Trump's denial of any knowledge of the payment could help Stormy Daniels's argument that her NDA is invalid, according to legal experts who say the contract language require's Trump assent", Balhaus wrote.

"You'll have to ask Michael Cohen", Trump said.

This claim is one that Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, plans to prove is untrue.

Asked what details the interview left out, Avenatti said CBS is a "conservative network" and "they play it close to the vest".

She says that as Trump himself did not sign the agreement, it is not legally binding.

"We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump's feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment", he tweeted. "As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath".

President Donald Trump traveled to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, to speak about tax policy.

Spotify Stock Struggles On Day 2, Live Nation Rises
Investors will most likely weigh the company's potential for growth, considering its 12-year streak of failing to turn a profit. It's not really been a good time for technology stocks, but on the day of Spotify's debut the Nasdaq closed up 1 .06%.

Daniels claimed in her 60 Minutes interview that she was threatened by an unknown man following her tell-all interview with In Touch Magazine in 2011.

But the president ignored a question about whether he had set up a fund for Cohen to draw on for such purposes.

Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney, acknowledged earlier this year that he made the payment but refused to explain why.

Mr Cohen has admitted to making the payment privately, but has denied that Mr Trump was a party to the transaction.

She also sued Mr Trump's lawyer, arguing he had defamed her by suggesting she was a liar.

"When she sat for that interview, it actually lasted over two hours in length, the actual interview", Michael Avenatti told NBC's "Megan Kelly Today" on Wednesday. The strength of our case just went up exponentially.

"Now it's not premature", Avenatti said, since the other side has since filed a motion to compel arbitration.
