President Donald Trump said Friday his new lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is “a great guy” and “he’ll get his facts straight.” “He’s learning the subject matter. He’s going to be issuing a statement, too,” Trump said of the former New York City mayor, on the White House South Lawn. “He started yesterday. He’ll get his facts straight.”
Once he arrived at Joint Base Andrews, Trump again defended Giuliani to reporters, saying he’s a “special guy” who is just beginning on the job. “When Rudy made the statements — Rudy is great — but Rudy had just started, and he wasn’t totally familiar with everything,” Trump said.
Trump on Giuliani: “He is a great guy. He knows it’s a witch hunt. That’s what he knows. He has seen a lot of them… Rudy knows it’s a witch hunt. He started yesterday. He will get his facts straight. But what he does is he feels it’s a very bad thing for our country.” pic.twitter.com/oFIzSy87kt
