It was not confirmed whether the president was aware of an agreement with Ms. Clifford or payment that was provided to her.

Cohen told the Journal in a statement that Trump "once again vehemently denies" the encounter, but did not comment on the alleged $130,00 payment.

Cohen added in the statement, addressed to The Wall Street Journal: "This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client".

In the days before the 2016 election, The Journal reported that Clifford was in talks with ABC's "Good Morning America" to air her story about Trump.

The Journal also reported in 2016 that the National Enquirer - a publication owned by a close friend of Trump - paid Playboy model Karen McDougal $150,000 for her story about an affair with Trump, but never published it. "I don't have a way to get in touch with her", she said.

Both Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels are denying reports of a "hush money" payoff.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", said the statement.

Clifford could not be reached for comment.

Clifford's lawyer told the outlet he couldn't comment because of attorney-client privilege.

"I previously represented Daniels", Davidson said, referring to Clifford's stage name.

Trump has long rejected the accusations from over a dozen women who have made such claims against him. His presidential bid also faced a major test in October 2016 when a 2005 "Access Hollywood" recording of Trump, boasting about grabbing women's genitals, was leaked to the Washington Post. Daniels appeared at the launch of Trump Vodka in 2007.

Earlier this week, Mr Cohen filed defamation lawsuits against the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and the news outlet BuzzFeed over a dossier, published by BuzzFeed, that laid out Mr Trump's potential ties to Russian Federation and included salacious claims about Mr Trump's sexual history.

The Smoking Gun said Trump was among an-80 player field that included star athletes like Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, as well as entertainers such as Ray Romano and Cheech Marin.

Clifford would not be Trump's first alleged encounter with a female porn star.

It's worth noting that Jessica Drake, another adult-film star, alleged in October 2016 that Trump "kissed her and two other women", without consent, back in 2006.

Meanwhile, Cohen also denied the reports, saying, "These rumours have circulated time and again since 2011". "I spoke out because it was the right thing to do".
