Donald Trump values loyalty above almost everything else. And that’s why he kept Rudy Giuliani with him for a long time.
This is despite the fact that the former New York City mayor has become an embarrassing fool. And Giuliani wants to be paid for his failed efforts to have the 2020 election results annulled.
According to Maggie Haberman, aides say Trump is not an option to pay his former attorney. In fact, the New York Times writer reports, they want him to cut Giuliani off completely.
Haberman tweeted on Sunday: “Giuliani allies look at the Trump $ – even if it’s not $ 82 million – and are appalled that Trump is not helping Giuliani with legal fees. Giuliani’s friends say he is close to bankruptcy, and so does his interview with Melissa Russo makes it clear that he knows that he is in legal danger. “

The reporter continued: “Trump’s aides have made it clear that they don’t see a Trump-free mechanism for paying Giuliani’s attorney’s bills, and they think Giuliani took action that a lawyer should have known were problematic, even if the client wanted to. However, this is noteworthy in the context of the fact that Trump had a previous attorney who pleaded guilty and then cooperated in an investigation into Trump. “
But this is of note in the context of Trump having had a previous lawyer who pleaded guilty and then cooperated with an investigation into Trump.

Despite the poor results, Giuliani Trump has always remained loyal. However, the former president was never shy about cutting people off when they outlived their usefulness.
