"Do you think his job includes lying to the American people? Because he continually does so and he undermines his own administration when he does so," Tapper asked Conway on CNN's "State of the Union."

Conway disputed that Trump lies, instead claiming that Tapper wanted "to go viral" by mentioning Trump and lies.

“I would like him to stop lying, quite frankly,” Tapper fired back.

Conway also denied that the White House has a "credibility problem."

Her comments come after Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani revealed that Trump had reimbursed his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 payment made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels to stay quiet about her alleged affair with the president.

The president had previously denied any knowledge of the payment. Giuliani has said that Trump didn't know about the payment until recently.
