It was another defense of the president, but it also turned out to be an acknowledgement that Trump has been kept updated on and actually involved in the legal battle to prevent actress Stephanie Clifford from saying whatever it is she wants to say.

Clifford sought to invalidate their agreement in order to "set the record straight".

The existence of the nondisclosure contract became known after The Wall Street Journal reported Cohen arranged to pay Clifford $130,000 just days before the 2016 presidential election to stop her from going public with her story.

"If he failed to disclose this situation, we must ask, what else is he hiding?"

Trump has been openly critical of the state's political leaders and policies. "I am one of the most successful adult movie directors in the business", she said. "I said it's not abnormal to have turnover", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters when told that no administration in recent history has had this much turnover.

In each instance, she praised the achievements of the White House and President Trump.

On Wednesday, Michael Avenatti, Clifford's attorney, responded to Sanders' comments on MSNBC'S The Last Word.

Cohen, who says he used personal funds through a home equity loan to "facilitate" the payment, has denied that the money came from the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign, leaving open the possibility that it came from Trump himself.

In an email Avenatti provided to the The Associated Press, dated October 26, 2016, an assistant to First Republic Bank senior managing director Gary Farro sent Cohen an email with the subject "RE: First Republic Bank Transfer" and a message that said "the funds have been deposited into your checking account". The money was wired to Davidson's bank account the day after, Avenatti said.

The letter requested details on agreements and payments made.

Cohen has said that he paid Clifford out of his own pocket and that he was never reimbursed by the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization.
