United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said that he was unaware of the payments worth $130,000 made by his personal attorney general Michael Cohen to American porn Stormy Daniels in exchange for remaining silent on the alleged sexual encounter.
Earlier while addressing media, Cohen said that he himself made the payment to Daniels ahead of the United States Presidential elections in 2014. He also added that neither the Republican Party nor Trump's campaigners are involved in the transaction.
Daniels has publicly claimed a 2006 sexual encounter with Trump. However, the US President had repeatedly denied any relations with the porn star.
She recently appeared on CBS' "60 Minutes" and claimed Cohen orchestrated a payment to keep her quiet during the election.
