Donald Trump claimed that his former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is in hospital being treated for a heart condition that he said was the result of what the political left has “put him through”.
On Friday night, the former US president attended a rally in Nevada where he stumped for the two candidates he endorsed in the Republican primaries, gubernatorial nominee Joe Lombardo and Senate nominee Adam Laxalt.
At one point during his rally, held at the Treasure Island resort on the Las Vegas Strip as part of the former president’s Save America PAC campaign stop, he turned his speech to the topic of law and order. Or, more specifically, lauding the work that Mr Giuliani carried out while he served as the mayor of New York from 1994 to the end of 2001.
“If America restored a proper approach to policing, prosecuting and jailing we would immediately cut violent crime in our major cities,” said Mr Trump, without citing any source for those figures.
“Under the greatest mayor in New York City in history, Rudy Giuliani, and he doesn’t know I was gonna say that, he’s watching,” Mr Trump began, before noting that his former advisor who’s a staunch defender of the twice-impeached president’s Big Lie, was in hospital “getting well”.
“He had a heart problem,” he said, before casting the blame for that heart problem on an unspecified “they”. “He’s in a hospital. Can you believe it what they put Rudy through?”
Mr Giuliani this week was subpoenaed by the Fulton County, Georgia grand jury investigating the former president’s attempts to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory, alongside South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and many advisors and attorneys who played key roles in the scheme to overturn the results.
Rudy would go on to tweet out that the doctors diagnosed him with two arterial blockages which resulted in him getting two stents.
