Report: Giuliani is Begging Trump for Help But Trump is Blowing Him Off
During his time in the White House, Donald Trump was more than willing to help out his friends. Time and time again, the former president issued pardons to allies and political supporters.
Rudy Giuliani has often tried to help Trump with various issues. And while the lawyers bumbling ways often made situations worse, he was very loyal to the former president. So it’s no surprise that Giuliani is now asking for help with his current legal situation. According to a new report though, there is no help coming from Trump as the former president is ignoring the pleas for aid.
The Daily Beast Adam Rawnsley and Asawin Suebsaeng write:
“Two people close to Trump say they have urged the former president to lay low on the matter and to refrain from making too many statements or commitments on Giuliani and the federal probe. Various people in Trump’s social and political orbits have been trying to convince the former president for years that Giuliani has been too great a liability for him, and they have suggested that he cut the lawyer loose.”
A source close to the situation noted, “It’s a question now of whether or not [Trump] and his team want to leave Rudy to fend for himself or if they’re going to take a stand against this. Right now we don’t know.”
While the charges are different, this is a similar stance to the one taken when Matt Gaetz asked for support. With his own problems looming, Trump seems content to lay low.
