Stormy Daniels' lawyer said there's more to the porn star's "60 Minutes" interview about a sexual affair with President Trump - including a description of the commander-in-chief's private parts - but it didn't make the cut because "they're a conservative network".

"You have to ask Michael Cohen".

Mr. Trump made his first public remarks about the matter on Air Force One as he returned to Washington from White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., where he had held a round table on tax cuts.

Avenatti and Daniels are in a legal fight with the president over $130,000 that Cohen, Trump's lawyer, paid her less than two weeks before Election Day in 2016.

If Cohen made that payment from his own funds and without Trump's knowledge, it could be considered an illegal contribution to the Trump campaign.

Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted in response that, "We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump's feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment as stated on Air Force One".

Nearly immediately after the president's statements were reported, Daniels' attorney challenged him to make them under oath. She claims the agreement is null and void because Mr. Trump never signed it. The strength of our case just went up exponentially, ' he wrote.

Avenatti said the interview lasted two hours, but "60 Minutes" only aired about 14 to 16 minutes of footage.

However, that hasn't stopped Avenatti from making some lurid claims-including Daniels being able to describe the president's genitalia "in great detail" during a discussion with Megyn Kelly on Wednesday.

'We don't need to hear that!' responded Kelly, as audience members gasped.

She says that as Trump himself did not sign the agreement, it is not legally binding. We will deliver the money today, ' the lawyer said.
