While Aboard Airforce One Trump Finally Breaks His Silence
President Trump took a few moments to answer the reporters who were clamoring in the passenger area of the President plane. One reporter, Elizabeth Landers, hit the President with yet another question about Stormy Daniels.
The President Fired back with clean cut answers. Take a look.
ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump, in his first public remarks about an intimate relationship he has been accused of having with an adult film star, said on Thursday he did not know about a $130,000 payment made by his lawyer to actress Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet.
The White House has denied that Trump had sex with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Daniels has said she and Trump had sex once in 2006.
Asked why his lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid the money if the allegations were untrue, Trump told reporters on Air Force One, “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael’s my attorney.”
Asked if he knew about the payment to Daniels, Trump said “No.”
Asked if he knew where the money came from to pay Daniels, Trump told reporters, “No, I don’t know.”
Cohan has already admitted in the past of paying the porn star from his own pocket so why are these reporters so surprised?
According to her 60 Minutes Interview, Daniels claims that a week and a half before the 2016 election, Donald Trump’s personal attorney paid a porn star named Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with the Republican candidate for president.
Today, that arrangement is well on its way to becoming the most talked-about “hush agreement” in history, with potential legal and political implications for the president.
Through his spokesman, Mr. Trump has denied having an affair with Stormy Daniels, and his lawyers are now threatening her with financial ruin, saying she has to pay $1 million dollars every time she violates her agreement to stay silent.
But that didn’t stop her from coming on 60 Minutes.
