Trump calls Cohen ‘very weak’ in wake of former lawyer’s new guilty plea
President Donald Trump reacted to the news that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress about the Russia investigation, calling his former lawyer “very weak.”
“He’s a weak person,” Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn before departing for Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“He was convicted with a fairly long-term sentence with things unrelated to the Trump Organization,” Trump said, citing Cohen’s legal issues with mortgages and the IRS.
Trump speculated that “what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence.”
