Avenatti said on Wednesday that a portion of 60 Minutes' interview with Daniels where she describes President Donald Trump's genitalia was left out of the program because the network "plays it close to the vest".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not know about a $130,000 payment made by his lawyer to adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump.

Trump claimed not to know where the money Cohen used came from, ignored a question about whether he ever set up a fund that Cohen could draw from, and directed further inquiries to the attorney himself. "You'll have to ask Michael".

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Thursday his client's case "just got that much better" with the president's on-the-record comments. "Michael's my attorney and you'll have to ask Michael", Trump responded. Daniels also signed a non-disclosure agreement.

In his first public statement over the scandal, the President finally answered questions over the alleged affair with Stephanie Clifford, who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels.

Daniels claims she had an affair with the president in 2006.

"As history teaches us", he added, "it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath".

However she lost a court motion for Mr Trump to give sworn testimony about her claim that they had a relationship.
