President Trump has publicly praised the legal team who he’s employed to carry out his crusade to overturn the 2020 election, but according to a report from NBC News, Trump has privately disparaged them, saying they’re an embarrassment.
“The president has been complaining to aides and allies about his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and recently-removed lawyer Sidney Powell’s over-the-top performances at a news conference at the RNC headquarters last week,” NBC News’ Monica Alba, Carol E. Lee and Hallie Jackson report.
According to a source speaking to NBC News, Trump is worried that the team is comprised of “fools that are making him look bad.” When asked why Trump doesn’t move to fire them, the source replied that they had no idea.
Trump reportedly grew less fond of former team member Sidney Powell after she made headlines for making wild and unsubstantiated claims about about hidden conspiracies to fraudulently hand the election to Joe Biden, ultimately leading to his campaign releasing a statement this Sunday distancing itself from her.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” the statement read. “She is not a member of the Trump legal team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
