The comment from Giuliani, the former NY mayor who recently joined Trump's legal team, comes amid an ongoing furor over a string of assertions he has made regarding the 2016 payment to Stormy Daniels, why it was made and how much the president knew about it.
And The Associated Press writes, "In an interview Sunday with ABC's This Week, Giuliani dismissed as rumor his own statements about Trump's payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, said he can't speak to whether the president lied to the American people when he denied knowledge of the silencing agreement and wouldn't rule out the president asserting his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the Russian Federation investigation".
Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney for President Donald Trump, did not rule out the possibility that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen might have made payments to other women beyond porn star Stormy Daniels.
Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, appearing right after Giuliani, told Stephanopoulos, "there is no question this had everything to do with the campaign". "It's a nuisance payment". He said that the $130,000 doesn't mean anything.
"She gave an interview back in 2011; there was a blog post back in 2011", Stephanopoulos said.
When questioned again on the payments on Saturday, Trump insisted he had remained consistent in his explanations and accused reporters of pursuing a "witch hunt". And then - so then you said Cohen met with Trump and told him and Giuliani said that we'll cover your expenses, they work out this $35,000 a month retainer after that.

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". "It has not been discussed, and would not be discussed", Giuliani said.
Conway said repeatedly that Trump was not lying when he said he did not know about Cohen's $130,000 payment to Daniels. "Nobody wants to speak more than me", added Mr. Trump.
Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway was Trump's campaign manager when Cohen made the payment to Daniels just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
"If we came to conclusion they have already made up their mind and Comey is telling the truth - that is a joke, Comey hasn't told the truth in years - then we would just be leading him into the lion's den", Giuliani said in an interview on Wednesday.
"Michael's lawyers all know that that obviously is not on the table", Giuliani said.
"Giuliani added later that "$130,000 between a lawyer and a client and - and a client who's worth, you know, billions, is not - George, you know, I don't like saying this, but it's not a great deal of money; $1.3 million is a great deal of money. "That isn't a decision to be made now". Baldwin's Trump asked Daniels.
He said that it's clear to the American people, "what's going on and it's a cover up". She said she has had to hire bodyguards, describing the situation as "overwhelming and intimidating and downright scary a lot of the times".
