An attorney for Donald Trump planned to pay more than $130,000 in hush money to ex-porn star Stormy Daniels just one month before the presidential election to keep her quiet about a tryst that she had with the married future president of the United States.

Michael Cohen, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, organized the payment to Stormy Daniels — whose name is Stephanie Clifford — in a nondisclosure agreement, according to a report by  The Wall Street Journal.

Clifford claimed that the hookup occurred back in 2006 — one year after Trump married his third wife, Melania. She said they met at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

The White House minimized the lewd revelation — one of many purported incidents of inappropriate behavior with women the president has faced and dismissed.

“These are old, reports, which were published and denied before the election,” a White House official said.

Cohen wouldn’t discuss the $130,000 payment but said in a statement that “President Trump vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels.”

The president has said that the over one dozen women who’ve accused him of sexual misconduct or assault are lying.

“This is the second time you are raising outlandish allegations against my client. You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since 2011,” Cohen continued.

The paper had previously reported that 38-year-old Clifford had discussed with ABC’s “Good Morning America” in 2016 about an appearance to talking about Trump.

Cohen also sent a statement denying the allegations that she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Trump.

“Rumors that I received hush money Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement revealed.

Clifford said in a Jan. 10 statement, which she signed with her stage name, denies that either the affair nor the payoff ever occurred

The payment was made through Clifford’s attorney, Keith Davidson, with the cash sent to Davidson’s client-trust account at City National Bank in Los Angeles, according to sources.

The same month the deal was made, the Washington Post released the notorious “Access Hollywood” video, in which Trump brags about groping women, saying he could “grab them by the p—y.”

Trump downplayed the comments as “locker room talk.”

Stormy Daniels was a top star in the porn industry when she met Trump at the American Century Championship in 2006 in Nevada.

Another porn star, Jessica Drake, claimed in an October 2016 press conference that Trump kissed her and two others without consent after the same golf event.

She said in a statement that she never asked nor received any hush money from Trump or his team.
