Barely two days after hosting Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House, US President Donald Trump is yet again faced with more trouble.

Trump was said to have reimbursed his long-time lawyer, Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels.

This is according to former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. 

This appears to contradict the president’s own statements on the matter.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and was paid the sum as part of a “hush agreement.”

“They funneled it through a law firm and the president repaid it,” Giuliani, who recently joined Trump’s legal team, told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds or whatever funds, it doesn’t matter. The president reimbursed that over a period of several months,” Giuliani said.

He added that the payment did not represent a campaign financing violation because it was “not campaign money.”

The sum was wired to Daniels just days before the November 2016 presidential election.

There had been suggestions Cohen could have fallen foul of campaign finance laws because it represented a contribution aimed at preventing negative press from arising.
