According to a video obtained by CNN of President Donald Trump speaking to the press before heading to a MAGA rally in Louisiana, it appears the president isn’t sure if Rudy Giuliani is still his attorney.
“President Trump talking to reporters on the south lawn of the White House as he gets ready to board Marine One — is asked by Pamela Brown whether or not Rudy Giuliani is still his lawyer,” Wolf Blitzer said announcing the video.
“Well, I don’t know,” Trump said. “I haven’t spoken to Rudy. I spoke to him yesterday briefly. He’s a very good attorney and he has been my attorney, yeah, sure.”
CNN reporter Gloria Borger said that Giuliani said that he still is Trump’s attorney when he was reached for comment.
“Why does this sound familiar to me that Trump is backing away from his personal attorney?” asked CNN host Wolf Blitzer.

‘This is mind control’: Ex-CIA agent nails Trump’s new loyalty oath for government staffers
The White House and Republicans were supposed to be putting together a plan to protect Americans against Russia hacking yet another election, former CIA officer Phil Mudd pointed out on CNN Monday. Instead, they've failed Americans, opting instead for their own crusade to protect the president from anyone who disagrees with him.
"In a typical president, the National Security Council would say to the president, 'here are the options,' but they won't do that," said Mudd.
Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby agreed, saying that in wake of the president's acquittal from the Republican Senate, he feels empowered to do whatever he wants.
Trump leveled by Dem lawmaker for purging ‘disloyal’ officials so he can surround himself with a ‘team of sycophants’
Appearing on CNN's 'New Day," with host Alisyn Camerota, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) hammered President Donald Trump for ordering the purge of government employees and appointees deemed disloyal to his administration -- saying the president wants to surround himself with a collection of yes men and women.
Reacting to a report from Axios that Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has compiled a list of Trump-supporting fringe characters like former Sheriff David Clarke and Fox News personality Dan Bongino for high-profile administration positions, the Democrat expressed his disgust.
Trump’s new Federal Reserve appointee called the US a ‘behemoth’ that couldn’t be trusted to oversee the US dollar
President Donald Trump hasn't had much luck with appointing people to the United States Federal Reserve.
In 2019, Trump tried to appoint Herman Cain and Stephen Moore to the high financial office. Both ultimately were forced to drop out of the running after being completely humiliated on the national stage. Now, according to CNN, Trump is trying again, though his recent appointee, Judy Shelton, doesn't look to be working out either.
"Our government is promising so much to so many and at the same time we let the government control the value of our money and all of that would really go against the grain with our Founders -- who did not see it as the government's task to supply everything to everybody," said Trump's appointee Shelton.
