Rudy Giuliani scrambled to walk back his statement that answering special counsel Robert Mueller's questions was a "nightmare" for President Donald Trump.

The president's personal attorney told The Atlantic that the written questions took Trump much longer than he would have expected and suggested the endeavor was difficult for Trump.

“Answering those questions was a nightmare,” Giuliani said. “It took him about three weeks to do what would normally take two days.”

However, Giuliani insisted Friday morning that his statements were misrepresented.

"Some in the media are distorting my statement that answering the questions was a nightmare," Giuliani tweeted. "That is because as President he was interrupted so often with critical and more important matters. It illustrates why Mueller should end this now and media should be fair."
