Trump grows frustrated with Giuliani as Stormy drama rages on

Trump grows frustrated with Giuliani as Stormy drama rages on

The Trump administration sought to distance itself from Rudy Giuliani's dramatic public statements about Iran and North Korea, saying that U.S. President Donald Trump's new lawyer does not speak for the president on matters of foreign policy.

"Because every day Giuliani says something that is so odd and so at odds with what we know that you wonder, are they just continuing this thing to keep us preoccupied with things that are going on in public, Giuliani talking about Donald Trump?". "The president feels that the TV interviews have organized his supporters and those...who understand the way in which he's been badly treated in this situation from the very beginning".

Then on Saturday, Giuliani caused another stir when he spoke to a group that supports the overthrow of Iran's government and said that the president was "committed" to regime change in Iran.

Scarborough went on to cite sources saying that the controversy posed an "existential threat to the presidency".

Giuliani, the former NY attorney general, has long supported Donald Trump, but is it time the two part ways? The former White House communications director himself drew parallels between his own burn-bright-burn-fast tenure and Giuliani's performance.

Trump was reportedly irritated by Giuliani's Sunday interview with ABC's "This Week", during which the lawyer left the door open to the idea that Trump had been involved in more payoffs to women aside from the $130,000 hush-money payment to the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Braun explained: "The only thing we're asking for is a hearing, a chance to present his side".

The onslaught of commentary led Trump to tell reporters on Friday that Giuliani would "get his facts straight" on the payment.

"Funneled through a law firm, and the president repaid it", Giuliani told talk show host Sean Hannity.

President Donald Trump has shaken up his legal team in the last three weeks - and he's still not happy.

In that same interview, Giuliani created one more headline on another matter when he implied Trump could plead the fifth if called to testify regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

That was only last Wedensday on Giuliani's Fox News interview.
