President-elect Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen will continue to represent him in the White House, although he has resigned from his role as executive vice president at the Trump Organization.

Cohen told The Washington Post he will serve as Trump's personal lawyer and will not be a White House lawyer.

"I'm not a government official. I'm not taking a government salary," Cohen told the Post. "I'm just going to continue technically in the role that I play for Mr. Trump as president of the Trump Organization. I'm just going to be doing it as Donald Trump as president of the United States."

Cohen's communications with Trump will likely be confidential because of the attorney-client privilege, the Post notes.

Cohen has been in the news because someone with his name was alleged to have traveled to Prague last year to meet with Russian officials. Cohen said he has never been to Prague and showed his passport to prove it.

He told the Post Trump's wealth presents a new problem for someone occupying the Oval Office.

"This is a very unusual president, because there's never been a president of the United States worth $10 billion, with 600 or 700 corporations that have national and international relations," Cohen said.
