Trump On The Verge Of Blowing Up On Giuliani’s Face For Making Stormy Scandal Worse: Report
Donald Trump is starting to regret his choice to pick Rudy Giuliani as his new attorney. Since the former New York mayor joined Trump’s legal team, more questions have been raised than answered and according to Politico, the president is not happy.
During a phone call interview with Politico, Giuliani pushed back against the notion that Trump has been unhappy with his performance.
“If I’m not up to it, I don’t know who is,” he said. “I know the Justice Department better than just about anyone.”
According to Politico “[Trump] has expressed frustration that Giuliani’s media appearances are raising more questions than they are answering, turning the story into a days-long drama capped by the admission Sunday that the president may have made similar payments to other women.”
Some White House aides told Politico that they expect Trump to fire Giuliani if his behavior does not change.
According to a White House aide familiar with the situation, White House lawyer Ty Cobb will be joining the president’s legal team which could put Giuliani’s job in jeopardy.
“Trump and his daughter Ivanka both personally called Cobb to express concern about his decision, according to a White House aide with knowledge of the situation,” Politico reported.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday dismissed any concerns Trump has had about Giuliani’s recent performance but didn’t seem sure herself.
“I didn’t speak with him specifically about his feelings about it but certainly feels that he is an added member – added value, member to his outside special counsel,” Sanders told reporters.
