Cohen had pleaded guilty in August to eight criminal counts, including campaign-finance violation and other charges and implicated the president in open court.
He also repeated his accusation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller - who is investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign - is forcing witnesses to make up lies damaging to the president. He further accused Cohen of fabricating "stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself".
While Washington is focused on memorializing former President George H.W. Bush, Mr. Trump on Monday morning, at least on Twitter, has been focused on whether his associates defend him or not.
Mr. Trump - who initially defended Cohen when federal investigators raided his apartment and office in April - has since appeared to turn on Cohen.

A prominent conservative writer at the heart of Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe filed a criminal complaint against the special counsel this week; accusing the federal investigator's team of seeking "false testimony". Unlike Cohen, Stone "will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories", he wrote, referring to the Mueller investigation. The Justice Department is likely to assess that whatever it is, the tweet is not a legal determination by the president and is not binding on the agency.
"File under '18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512", George Conway tweeted, a reference to the section of the United States criminal code that covers witness tampering and obstruction of justice. He pointed to a statute in the U.S. Code that defines witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Cohen admitted to making the payments at Trump's behest to buy Clifford's silence and, in turn, influence the election.
Despite the symbolism of Friday's signing, Trump has no meetings with Trudeau scheduled while the two are in Argentina. But although the agreement has been signed it must be ratified by the legislative bodies of all three countries.
