A lawyer for Donald Trump arranged a 130,000-dollar payment for a former porn star in return for her silence over an alleged sexual encounter with the United States president, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

An adult film actress who reportedly received a $130,000 payment from Donald Trump's personal attorney shortly before the election has denied allegations that she had an affair with Trump or received hush money in order to keep quiet.

Daniels had been in talks to discuss Trump with ABC's "Good Morning America" in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election when Cohen arranged the payment to her, according to the Journal.

An attorney for the Trump Organisation, set up the payment to the woman - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

According to The Journal, Clifford has privately alleged the encounter took place after the two met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

In statements to BuzzFeed News, Clifford and Cohen denied Trump and Clifford had a sexual encounter. The statement denied that Ms Clifford and Mr Trump had a "sexual and/or romantic affair".

It continued: "Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false".

Cohen did not comment on the $130,000 when asked about the payoff, the Journal says.

Trump also denied those allegations as well. The same site reported that a third actor, who accused Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election, is now subject to a non-disclosure agreement.

Cohen also acknowledged Trump and Daniels have been in headlines together since 2011, when a site called The Dirty published claims they had been together while Melania Trump was pregnant with the president's youngest son, Barron.

Alana Evans told the Daily Beast that she had been in the area at the time of the tournament and bumped into Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, then a close friend.

In a statement to the Journal, a White House spokesperson denied the existence of a payout. Speaking in 2016, Ms Drake recalled that Mr Trump offered her $10,000 and the use of his private plane if she would agree to come back to his room and accompany him to a party.
