Trump has denied the BuzzFeed article's claim and Giuliani backed him: "I can tell you his counsel to Michael Cohen throughout that entire period was: "Tell the truth". Saying that the talks ended in January 2016 was a lie, Cohen admitted. Those statements turned out to be lies.

The next day, Giuliani walks back his comments, saying they "did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any discussions". Giuliani also leaves open the possibility that Trump and Cohen might have discussed Cohen's testimony.
