A porn actress who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump has renewed an effort to get the US president to answer her lawyer’s questions under oath.

An attorney for Stormy Daniels filed the motion in federal court in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Michael Avenatti is seeking a jury trial and wants sworn testimony from Mr Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, about a 130,000 dollar (£92,000) payment made to Ms Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election as part of a non-disclosure agreement she is seeking to invalidate.

Mr Trump answered questions about Ms Daniels for the first time last week, saying he had no knowledge of the payment made by Mr Cohen.

The White House has consistently said Trump denies the affair.
