The comments come after reports surfaced the he paid $130,000 (€104,000) in 2016 to keep Clifford quiet about the alleged relationship with Mr Trump.

According to Clifford, the statement harmed her reputation and exposed her to contempt, ridicule and shame.

Raj Shah spokesman for the White House, said on Monday that Mr Trump has strongly, clearly and consistently denied the underlying claims by Clifford.

He said, “The president doesn’t believe any of the claims Ms Daniels made in the interview last night were accurate,”

The television interview drew the highest ratings for CBS 60 minutes in ten years.

Asked by reporters about Mr Cohen’s alleged payment, Shah said, “False charges are settled out of court all the time. This is nothing out of the ordinary.”

Clifford has tried to invalidate the agreement,  because she says Mr Trump didn’t sign it, and said her decision to speak out was driven by suggestions by the president’s associates that she made up the story and is lying.
