Khan 'should be ashamed' of Trump criticism

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, advised the Mayor of London to focus on leading the capital rather than making comments about Mr Trump.He said: "The Mayor of London is rallying against the president of the United States? He should be ashamed of himself. Maybe he should do his job rather than attack a world leader."Mr Trump and Mr Khan have clashed repeatedly since the pair were elected around two years ago.

Two sources close to the president said people in Trump ’s inner circle have in recent days been actively discussing the possibility that Michael Cohen — long seen as one of Trump ’s most loyal personal allies — might flip if he faces serious charges as a result of his work on behalf of Trump .

“I put family and country first.”

The lawyer responded angrily when asked how he would respond if Trump's legal team tried to lay any blame at his door, saying: “I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy. I am not a villain of this story, and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way.”

"I don’t like the term witch hunt,” he said.

“As an American, I repudiate Russia’s or any other foreign government’s attempt to interfere or meddle in our democratic process, and I would call on all Americans to do the same.”
