Trump says Michael Cohen is not his lawyer

President Trump has denied that Michael Cohen is his lawyer, though the president said he has always liked Cohen. During an impromptu Q-and-A session with reporters outside the White House, the president was asked whether Cohen was still his lawyer. "No, he's not my lawyer," the president responded. He also said, "I always liked Michael. I haven't spoken to Michael in a long time." "But I always liked Michael," the president added. "And he's a good person." When asked whether he's worried that Cohen might cooperate with prosecutors, the president replied, "No, I'm not worried because I did nothing wrong."
