Sources say Trump's not angry at Giuliani: 'Rudy's not getting fired'

The report does not specify what Trump said to Cohen or when he said it. But the report also said that Trump has no plans to fire Giuliani. Giuliani frequently appears in the media fiercely defending his client, the president.

The White House and Giuliani did not respond immediately to requests for comment.

The Giuliani show is reportedly frustrating Emmet Flood, the lawyer who is tasked with handling the special counsel investigation for Trump, and, ostensibly, cleaning up after the television attorney. No other media outlets could confirm the report, but chose to dedicate pages and screen time to the claim with the irresponsible qualifier "if true". That extends the timeline for the Russian business deal well beyond what the president has publicly acknowledged.

At times, Giuliani's seemingly out-of-nowhere admissions in interviews have, in fact, been part of a strategy to get ahead of damaging news stories.

Despite Giuliani's attempt to push back on that story, the AP is also reporting that Trump is "agitated" over Giuliani's antics, such as telling NBC News' Chuck Todd that Trump was still discussing the Trump Tower Moscow deal as late as November of 2016, and calling it an "active proposal".


During his interview with the New Yorker on Monday, Giuliani said that, "as a lawyer", he did not believe he had ever said anything untruthful and claimed he has "a sense of ethics that is as high as anybody you can imagine". "Well, I have listened to tapes, but none of them concern this".

"Because I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the e-mails, and I knew none existed", he said as evidence that the Moscow conversations were not happening. "Make it happen", the sources said Trump told Cohen", BuzzFeed News reported. But his relationship with President Donald Trump could overshadow his accomplishments, at least, according to him. Giuliani told the Times that the president told him that conversations about the project were "going on from the day I announced to the day I won".

This is despite President Trump's repeated and frustrated insistence that there was no collusion with Russian Federation.

Giuliani has also been caught misleading the public about the project before; he has previously said that the letter of intent to enter into the real estate deal was never signed, until documents emerged proving he was wrong. Cohen says he lied to minimize the public understanding of Trump's Russian Federation ties, to try to limit the various Russian Federation investigations and to be consistent with Trump's "political messaging".

A final letter of intent signed by Trump on October 28, 2015, noted Trump Tower Moscow would have "approximately 250 first class, luxury residential condominiums", 15 floors of 150 hotel rooms, a luxury spa by Ivanka Trump and fitness center, and a commercial area for businesses to rent.
