One of the biggest stories of the year has revolved around Donald Trump and his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels. While Trump has continued to deny the allegations, the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani revealed new information that contradicts his previous denial.

Trump on Giuliani

It was back in January when the Wall Street Journal broke the bombshell story claiming that Donald Trump had an affair with Stormy Daniels back in 2006.

In addition, the paper reported that Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid Daniels $130,000 in "hush money" during the 2016 election to keep the story from the public. Since then, Cohen's office has been raided by the FBI over the issue, and he's in court defending himself. In response, Trump has denied the affair and the payout to Daniels, writing the report off as "fake news."

Despite this, current Trump lawyer and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday and revealed that Donald Trump has already paid back the money Michael Cohen used to silence Stormy Daniels.

"The President repaid it," Giuliani admitted. In a tweet on May 3, Trump responded to the news. "Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign," Trump tweeted.

"These agreements are very common among celebrities and people of wealth," Donald Trump went on to add.

"In this case it is in full force and effect and will be used in Arbitration for damages against Ms. Clifford (Daniels) he added. The president went on to accuse Stormy Daniels of "false and extortionist accusations" about their alleged affair.

Twitter reacts

In response to Donald Trump's tweet, critics took time to fire back on social media.

"Liar, liar, pants on fire! You can’t lie your way out!" one tweet read.

"Last nights train wreck of an interview with Sean Hannity proves you and your team of dotards have the combined IQ of a used pencil shaving," a Twitter user wrote.

"Your attorneys are trying to do damage control via your Twitter account, but they have no idea how to be legal and sound like you at the same time," another tweet added. "These tweets are written by your attorney..the lawyer who wrote these tweets is a moron!" an additional tweet stated.

"Melania cares and this is against his Christian base family values," a social media user added. "Later you will deny writing this tweet, and Giuliani will say he did," a follow-up tweet read.
