Report: Trump “Furious” at Giuliani’s Recent Performance
After months of bad news, Donald Trump finally scored a small victory on Friday night. The Special Counsel’s repudiation of a bombshell Buzzfeed report aids the president in his proclamation that all negative stories are “fake news.”
The Trump team, however, was never really able to capitalize on the gift from Mueller. The news cycle quickly turned to covering the rambling interviews of Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. According to a new report from Vanity Fair, Trump is furious at Giuliani and is contemplating his fate.
Giuliani has certainly given his client reason for concern. On Sunday night, the former Mayor of New York stated, “I’m afraid it will be on my gravestone. “Rudy Giuliani: He Lied for Trump.” Somehow, I don’t think that will be it. But if it is, so what do I care? I’ll be dead.”
In the same interview Giuliani claimed that there were never any plans drawn up for a Trump Tower Moscow. These claims were contradicted last night when Buzzfeed released copies of the drawings.
Sources close to the White House say of the president, ““Trump is screaming. He’s so mad at Rudy.” The president’s team is reportedly divided on whether or not Giuliani should be fired.
It has previously been reported that Giuliani is not happy in his current role. Giuliani told friends that, “he hates the job,” and that Mueller’s report will be “horrific.”
Serving as Trump’s lawyer, though, has been a high-profile position for Giuliani. After a failed presidential run in 2008, acting as a Trump surrogate has helped offer a spot back in the limelight.
If Trump is to rid himself of Giuliani, it is unknown who would step into his place. The Trump legal team has already faced the high-profile departures of John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Don McGahn.
