"No", Trump told a reporter who asked if he knew about the payment aboard Air Force One, the Hill reported.

Trump also said he didnt know why his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, had made the payment.

The money Trump claimed he has no idea about was reportedly part of a 2016 non disclosure agreement to keep Daniels silent about her alleged affair with the commander-in-chief.

Mr Cohen has said he paid Daniels out of his own pocket.

Avenatti, who has sought to have Trump give sworn testimony, added, It is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath. "Michael's my attorney and you'll have to ask Michael".

"No. I don't know", said Trump.

Michael Avenatti, Clifford's attorney, immediately responded to the president's comments, suggesting Trump's Air Force One remarks about his lack of knowledge of the payment were not honest. She claimed that she had "consensual" sex with Trump in July 2006.

Still, that brief exchange was enough to make Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, do a victory dance.

Daniels has also told U.S. media that she was threatened by a stranger in a vehicle park in 2011 to "leave Trump alone".

Cohen has acknowledged having made the payment to her. Also if the president did not know anything about the agreement, the adult film star can argue she was deceitfully persuaded to sign the agreement that wasn't represented by Trump.
