'I have pictures with everybody': Trump denies the photograph of him with arrested Giuliani associates is damning
President Donald Trump rants on the White House South Lawn (Screen cap).

On Thursday, faced with extra scrutiny after a photograph emerged of President Donald Trump with two associates of Rudy Giuliani who were just arrested for Ukraine-related campaign finance violations, the president attempted to brush the whole thing off as not a big deal in conversation with reporters on the White House lawn.

"I don’t know those gentlemen," said Trump.

"You were in pictures with them!" said a reporter.

"That was possible I have a picture with them, because I have a picture with everybody. I have a picture with everybody here," said Trump. "But somebody said there may be a picture or something at a fund-raiser or somewhere. So — but I have pictures with everybody. I have — I don’t know if there’s anybody I don’t have pictures with. I don’t know them. I don’t know about them. I don’t know what they do. But I don’t know. Maybe they were clients of Rudy. You would have to ask Rudy. I just don’t know."
