Trump reportedly said that it was "like, so unfair."
He slammed the authorities and accused the FBI of double standards. Trump vaguely mentioned corruption while defending Giuliani saying that Rudy loved his country and it was sad that this happened to him.
Giuliani denied that the raids that took place at his home and office had anything to do with his business interests in Ukraine.
The Guadian reported that White House press secretary Jen Psaki revealed that they had not been given any information about the raid.
Trump's former lawyer had warned that Guiliani would be the next person he "threw under the bus."
"What I told him was that Donald Trump doesn't care about anyone or anything, that he will be the next one to be thrown under the bus," says Michael Cohen of Rudy Giuliani.
