Trump’s financial disclosure mentions a reimbursement to Michael Cohen, who was his personal lawyer

An official disclosure has confirmed US President Donald Trump reimbursed his lawyer for a payment to a porn star to hush her claims of an affair.

The Office of Government Ethics said on Wednesday that Mr Trump ought to have revealed the payment in his previous financial disclosure.

The filing shows he paid back Michael Cohen for a 2016 expense of between $100,001 (£75,000) and $250,000.

Mr Trump previously denied knowing of the $130,000 payment to Ms Daniels.

Rudy Giuliani, another of the president’s attorneys, first revealed the reimbursement earlier this month.
