Trump denies knowing about payment to Stormy Daniels

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

When pressed about why Cohen made the large payment, Trump deferred all query's to his lawyer. Daniels also signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Asked aboard Air Force One whether he knew about the payment, Mr Trump responded "no".

The president made the comments aboard Air Force One, heading from a roundtable event in West Virginia to Washington, D.C. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had a sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006. "You'll have to ask Michael".

Putin, Erdogan Hold Joint Press Conference
But Putin refused to discuss the issue saying "these are exclusively commercial questions" rather than political ones. But Erdogan indicated that Turkey was in no mood to listen to criticism from the West over the purchase.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Thursday his client's case "just got that much better" with the president's on-the-record comments.

"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.

In the second tweet, Avenatti basically thanked Trump for helping his case, saying "You can't have an agreement when one party claims to know nothing about it", adding #thanksforplaying.
