President Donald Trump on Friday said Rudy Giuliani will "get his facts straight" after the former New York City mayor said this week that the president's personal attorney was reimbursed the $130,000 he paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels as part of a hush agreement.

This week's Saturday Night Live cold open was another celebrity-filled skit with Ben Stiller reprising his role as President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen - and Stormy Daniels appearing as herself.

On Friday, Mr. Trump told reporters he'd "love to" speak with Mueller about the Russian Federation investigation but will only do so if he can be "treated fairly".

Kate McKinnon also appears during the sketch as Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani and is revealed to be speaking during a Fox News interview. "It's a nuisance payment".

Rudy Giuliani told ABC's This Week programme he had "no knowledge" of whether Michael Cohen had made other payments for the President, but said: "I would think if it was necessary, yes".

CA came under fire after reports emerged that it had wrongfully obtained the personal data of roughly 87 million Facebook users. About 6 million Pennsylvanians voted in that election, state records show.

"Well, I don't know, how do you separate fact and opinion?" said Giuliani. Cohen, a Long Island native, has said he paid Daniels out of his own pocket to remain quiet about her alleged affair with Trump, doing so without the president's awareness.

Daniels and Baldwin's Trump then opened the NBC variety show with its catch phrase, "Live from NY ..."

Giuliani told ABC News a presidential pardon for Cohen is "not on the table" at the moment and has not been discussed amongst Trump's legal team.

Giuliani said he does not know when Trump learned of Cohen's payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and argued that he doesn't "know if that's relevant at all". "He (Cohen) made payments for the president, or he conducted business for the president, which means he had legal fees, monies laid out and expenditures, which I have on my bills to my clients", Giuliani said.

During the interview, Giuliani said that people do not go away with Dollars 130,000 for a meritorious claim. The Washington Post's Fact Checker has been tracking Trump's false or misleading public claims in office, and so far, it has found more than 3,000 such comments - an average of 6.5 claims per day.

But some lawmakers who sit on those committees remain unsatisfied, particularly members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. Cobb and McGahn hold different views on how co-operative the White House should be with the special counsel investigation.

Later in the interview, Giuliani contradicted his statement to BuzzFeed again, saying that the agreement between Trump and Cohen was "longstanding" rather than something the two established after the election.

"That's not a decision to be made now, there's no reason to be made now".

"The president had effectively an extramarital affair slush fund that was administered by Michael Cohen, and that he would just be expected to take care of these things; they were a regular occurrence", Avenatti said.

"No, I would like him to stop lying, quite frankly", Tapper said.

"A resignation", Ms Daniels said. "I mean we now know that that was an absolute lie".

The movie has received positive reviews from critics, with an 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes , and received an A CinemaScore . The audience score, however, is faring better with a 76 percent.

"I think it is obvious to the American people that this is a cover-up; that they are making it up as they go along", Avenatti said. "But a storm's a-comin', baby", she said.
