Ms Daniels has also told U.S. media that she was threatened by a stranger in a auto park in 2011 to "leave Trump alone".
President Trump talks with reporters aboard Air Force One on a flight to Andrews Air Force Base, Md., Thursday.
Nearly immediately after the president's statements were reported, Daniels' attorney challenged him to make them under oath. "Michael's my attorney and you'll have to ask Michael", Trump responded.
A reporter asked Trump regarding the payment: "Then why did Michael Cohen make it, if there was no truth to her allegations?" "You'll have to ask Michael".
"No", Trump said. "I don't know".
Are we in a trade war yet?
The United States isn't embroiled in a trade war, President Trump said Wednesday, even though it sure looks like one. The emerging trade war between the USA and China is spooking stock markets . "We have to export".
"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. Michael is my attorney.
During a press briefing aboard Air Force One today, April 5, he told reporters that he didn't know about the "hush agreement" or where the money (paid for by his personal lawyer Michael Cohen) came from.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told CBS television's 60 Minutes program that she was not attracted to Trump, who was 60 at the time of their affair.
Daniels claims she began the one-year affair in 2006, the same year Trump's wife Melania gave birth to their son. She claims it's void because Trump did not sign it.
