Trump says he did not know about payment to porn star

Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump broke a two month silence about allegations he slept with a porn star, insisting Thursday that he did not pay her $130,000 hush money.

Trump offered a flat “no” when asked if he knew about the payment, or where the money came from.

Asked specifically why his lawyer Michael Cohen made the payment to Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the screen name Stormy Daniels, before the 2016 election, Trump replied:

“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael.”
