Porn star's lawyer says Trump missed settlement offer deadline

It also threatens to erode the president's support among evangelical voters.

Through her attorney, Michael Avenatti, Clifford on Monday offered to return $130,000 in hush money to Cohen if he would declare the contract "null and void". He said Daniels' only motivation now is to explain her side of the story.

"The president has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a White House briefing on March 6.

Avenatti in a letter to Cohen, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, said the actress would wire the funds to an account of Trump's choosing by Friday.

Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Cohen had not responded to the offer by Clifford's proposed deadline of noon on Tuesday.

In exchange for the cash, Daniels would be permitted to "speak openly and freely about her prior relationship with the president and the attempts to silence her", and use any text messages, photos, videos or other materials in her possession, Avenatti said Monday in announcing the offer.

Speaking at the Innovative TV Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday, CBS News president David Rhodes would not confirm that the interview will air this coming Sunday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

And it would require the agreement be signed by all parties, including the president, who did not put his name to the previous nondisclosure deal. Neither immediately responded to comment requests.

"Time to buckle up", Clifford's attorney wrote.

A source told the network that Trump was told by advisers not to fight Daniels' decision to break a confidentiality agreement because it would make him look guilty - and that that's the only reason he had so far stayed quiet on the issue and hadn't tweeted about it.

Clifford could be subjected to a $1 million penalty if she broke the nondisclosure agreement she signed.
