On Thursday, the politician, 76, appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss the current state of affairs in the United States, defending President Donald Trump‘s controversial and much-maligned response to the ongoing protests.
Amid the demonstrations in Minneapolis and around the country over the killing of George Floyd, Trump, 73, wrote on Twitter last Friday that the more violent protesters were “thugs” who were “dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.” He added — to the alarm of many — “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
Giuliani stood by Trump’s message, claiming that he meant that violence begets violence. He said media bias is what has led to criticism of Trump, which host Morgan, 55, fired back at.
“Oh, stop banging on about left-wing journalism, Rudy,” said Morgan. “… I’ve written more fairly about Donald Trump than anybody.”
