President Donald Trump held two brief press scrums with reporters on Friday — and he seemed to put some distance between himself and Rudy Giuliani‘s comments regarding the Stormy Daniels–Michael Cohen reimbursement story.
“Rudy knows it’s a witch hunt. He started yesterday. He’ll get his facts straight. He’s a great guy. But what he does is he feels it’s a very bad thing for our country and he happens to be right.”
“I will tell you this, when Rudy made the statements, Rudy is great, but Rudy had just started, and he wasn’t totally familiar with everything. And Rudy, we love Rudy, a special guy, he really understands that this is a witch hunt. He understands that probably better than anybody…But when he made certain statements, he just started yesterday. So that’s it.”
