Here's how Donald Trump could have just helped Stormy Daniels' legal case

Photo President Trump spoke to reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday.

Asked why Michael D. Cohen, his personal lawyer, had made the payment, Mr. Trump said, "You'll have to ask Michael".

"You'll have to ask Michael", Trump said. Daniels and her lawyer say the agreement is invalid because Trump never signed it.

Do you know where the money came from? a reporter asked.

Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti reacted favorably to President Donald Trump's first public comments about the $130,000 payment made in 2016 in exchange for silence about an alleged sex encounter by thanking Trump for helping his client's case.

She is now suing Mr. Trump to abrogate a nondisclosure agreement that was supposed to prevent her from discussing her relationship.

"As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath", Mr. Avenatti wrote.

While Trump has denied the allegations made by the adult film star, she was insisted the pair had an affair-sharing details of her story in a widely watched 60 Minutes interview the ratings of which topped those of the president's own appearance.

President Donald Trump's approval rating has gone up three points among male voters in the wake of the Stormy Daniels controversy.

In a second tweet, Avenatti suggested it would be hard for Trump's legal team to argue in court that the agreement was in force if Trump himself didn't know about its terms.

On Monday, Trump's lawyers sought to get that lawsuit out of federal court and into private arbitration.

This is the first time Trump has addressed the affair, which began in 2006 shortly after the birth of his fifth child, Barron.

She's one of at least 19 women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct - all dating back before the 2016 election.
