Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen leaves Federal court on August 21, 2018, in NY after pleading guilty to charges including campaign finance fraud.
One talent that Trump has demonstrated time and again is that he understands the beating heart of his base, his core supporters.
The people described Trump as somber but calm and added that he said nothing critical about Manafort or Cohen.
He told a federal court in Manhattan that Mr Trump directed him to arrange payments ahead of the 2016 presidential election to silence two women who said they had affairs with Mr Trump.
After bashing Cohen Wednesday morning, Trump praised Manafort, saying, "Unlike Michael Cohen, [Manafort] refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a 'deal.' Such respect for a fearless man!" There were others that were involved in paying these phony invoices that were created to pay money back to Michael Cohen that he had put forward to [former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels].
"They're weren't taken out of campaign finance".
He did not bring up either of his former associates. There is also considerable evidence, as I previously argued, that Russia's intervention on Trump's behalf affected the outcome.

Roy Hodgson was left furious after a series of refereeing decisions went against Crystal Palace in a home loss to Liverpool . The closest Palace came to scoring was when Andros Townsend curled a long-range shot against the crossbar in the first half.
Mr Trump tweeted he felt "very badly" for Mr Manafort, who was found guilty on Tuesday of bank and tax fraud.
In court on Tuesday, Cohen said he made payments to influence the 2016 election at the direction of a candidate for federal office.
Cohen also has been said to be willing to tell Mueller that Trump knew in advance of a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in which the Republican candidate's eldest son sought damaging information from a Russian lawyer about Hillary Clinton.
Cohen may be inclined to cooperate knowing Mueller could recommend more lenient sentencing at his hearing on December 12.
US President Donald Trump, in tweets about the stunning legal setbacks involving two of his former lieutenants, has attacked the one who has turned on him and defended the one who has remained loyal.

Investigators in NY state have issued a subpoena to Michael Cohen as part of their probe into the Trump Foundation, an official with Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration confirmed to The Associated Press Wednesday.
'I participated in this conduct with the objective of influencing the election, ' a visibly crestfallen Cohen told the judge - an admission that puts Trump himself in legal jeopardy.
At the White House briefing, Sanders said more than a half dozen times that "the president did nothing wrong".
Trump disparaged the special counsel's investigation upon landing in Charleston, West Virginia, telling reporters the probe is a "a witch hunt and a disgrace".
"Just because Michael Cohen made a plea deal doesn't mean that that implicates the president on anything", she said.
"In any other situation, the statements under oath by Cohen during his plea allocution would lead to an investigation and nearly certainly an indictment of the candidate who directed the illegal activity", Simmons said.
