Stormy Daniels case: Trump denies campaign funds paid off porn actor

President Donald Trump has denied money used to buy a porn star’s silence came from election campaign funds.

He admitted, in a series of tweets, that lawyer Michael Cohen had paid off Stormy Daniels during the campaign and that he was reimbursed.

It was the first time the president has referred directly to the payment, although he remains adamant there was no affair with Ms Daniels.

Use of campaign funds would be a violation of federal law.

Earlier, his legal aide Rudy Giuliani had said the money was Mr Trump’s personal cash.
