CNN: Trump: I do not know if Giuliani is still my attorney vs Fox News: Trump backs legendary Giuliani
It is difficult being an independent these days. You are in the midst of the impeachment inquiry with media spinning news in an attempt to win points for a political candidate they favor. In the last couple of days, Giuliani has been in the spotlight, his Ukraine dealings being placed under scrutiny and his close aides arrested.
According to CNN source, Giuliani has become “too hot to touch” and Trump is already distancing himself from him. They also draw parallels with Michael Cohen, former Trump’s attorney, who suffered the same faith, with Trump attempting to downplay his influence. According to CNN, Trump is looking to replace Giuliani with Gowdy, a former South Carolina congressman, because Trump’s aides have started seeing Rudy as a liability.
According to Fox News, Trump supported Rudy with "“He may seem a little rough around the edges sometimes, but he is also a great guy and wonderful lawyer.”
We can see that CNN failed to mention the part where Trump supports Rudy in his typical way. However, Fox News failed to mention Trump’s reluctance to confirm that Rudy was still his lawyer and his “Rudy has many clients and not only me”. To conclude, it can be said that it is too early to say that “Trump is distancing himself from Rudy who has become too hot to touch”, but it is also a bit of an exaggeration to say that Trump backs legendary Giuliani. It remains to be seen how things will unfold.
