Giuliani pleaded not guilty to the Georgia charges.

During an interview with CNN, the New York Times reporter highlighted that the once-amicable bond between the two had considerably deteriorated as early as 2018.

The topics of discussion revolved around Trump's upcoming involvement in a fundraiser at his Bedminster Country Club to aid Giuliani in covering his mounting legal expenses.

The former president, however, has not pledged any personal financial support towards Giuliani's legal fees.

"So, Maggie, Rudy Giuliani pleaded not guilty today," CNN anchor John Berman told Haberman on Friday, September 1. "We learned that Trump is headlining this [$100,000] per person fundraiser for Giuliani next week. What's the relationship right now between these two men?"

Regarding the Trump fundraiser, Haberman replied, "I'm not sure he's hosting it."

"I think he's having it at his club. I have no idea if he's charging a rental fee or what for this event. He is headlining it, that is true. Their relationship is strained."

"Look, Trump is said to still have some fondness for Giuliani, but Trump has often been very critical of Giuliani over the last couple of years," she continued. "He has said to Giuliani and to others, 'Well, you didn't win these cases,' and therefore he wasn't going to cover the fees that Giuliani was looking for back in 2020 when he was, you know, offering all of these false theories and claims about widespread fraud."

Haberman claimed that the two still see each other but suggested they now speak far less frequently.

“These are not people who are speaking on the phone every day,” she told the CNN host. “Trump has a separate relationship that he had for a long time with… Rudy’s son, Andrew, who is one of Giuliani’s closest advisers and confidants. But that’s a very separate track. This is not a relationship that has ever gone back to where it was in, say, 2018.”

On top of the Georgia fake elector charges, Giuliani also faces civil litigation.

Earlier this week, the former mayor was found liable for defaming two poll workers in Georgia he claimed helped rig the election against Trump.
