President Donald Trump has reportedly instructed his aides not to pay the legal fees that attorney Rudy Giuliani has racked up in recent weeks as he tried to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The Washington Post reported that Trump’s relationship with Giuliani has soured in recent days and is “fracturing” as the president comes to grip that his presidency will end next week.
“Trump has instructed aides not to pay Giuliani’s legal fees, two officials said, and has demanded that he personally approve any reimbursements for the expenses Giuliani incurred while traveling on the president’s behalf to challenge election results in key states,” the report said. “They said Trump has privately expressed concern with some of Giuliani’s moves and did not appreciate a demand from Giuliani for $20,000 a day in fees for his work attempting to overturn the election.”
The president is reportedly angered that few close to him have been out in the media
