President Donald Trump on Friday hinted to reporters that new attorney Rudy Giuliani botched his reveal of the president's reimbursement of attorney Michael Cohen for his hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
"Rudy is a great guy but he started a day ago," Trump said, according to CNN reporter Elizabeth Landers. "He'll get his facts straight."
Trump also said that Giuliani would issue a statement that would clarify his earlier remarks shortly.
Giuliani's stunning admission to Fox News host Sean Hannity that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for paying off Daniels -- after months of the president insisting that he had no knowledge at all of any such payment -- was so shocking that even some Fox News personalities have started calling the president out for repeatedly lying to the American public.
Additionally, MSNBC's Donny Deutsch said on Friday that he spoke with Cohen on Thursday -- and Cohen said that Giuliani "doesn’t know what he’s talking about" in regards to the Daniels payment.
