President Donald Trump is not angry at his attorney Rudy Giuliani, despite the former NY mayor's contradictory answers in recent interviews about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow, sources told CNN Tuesday - and Giuliani is not going anywhere.

Giuliani told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump may have continued to pursue the project and had discussions about it with his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, until as late as October or November 2016, when Trump was closing in on his election victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump has denied the BuzzFeed article's claim and Giuliani backed him: "I can tell you his counsel to Michael Cohen throughout that entire period was: "Tell the truth".

The remarks also came amid fallout from a disputed report by BuzzFeed News that alleged that evidence showed that Trump had personally directed Cohen to lie to Congress about how long talks about the proposed project had overlapped with Trump's campaign for president.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaks at the 2018 Iran Freedom Convention in Washington, U.S., May 5, 2018. "'Rudy Giuliani: He lied for Trump, '" Giuliani said. The next day, Giuliani walks back his comments, saying they "did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any discussions".

Much remains unknown about the plans for a Trump Tower in Moscow. I shouldn't say he had no conversations. Giuliani had then indicated in an interview with ABC News last month that the talks had lasted possibly until Election Day, although he was less specific than he was Sunday.

BuzzFeed confirmed the link to Fox on Tuesday, with a spokesperson saying, "NBCU is indeed an investor and a great strategic partner, but I'm afraid you'd have to ask them about how and when they disclose that information". "But the president can remember having conversations. about it". He has long played the role more of presidential spokesman than attorney, often unleashing public attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Adjusting his previous timeline, Giuliani told CNN on Monday that there was no way of determining exactly when the discussions ended because they had no record of it. "I don't know if they made it up".

On America's Newsroom Monday, Kurtz said this was a "humiliating episode" for BuzzFeed and also a "black eye" for many media organizations. A presentencing memo from Cohen's lawyer, Guy Petrillo, said Cohen had made the statement out of a desire to be loyal and consistent with Trump's wishes to minimize his involvement. "And I think it's remarkable that we're two years after the fact and just discovering it today".

- January 20-21, 2019: Giuliani suggests in TV interviews that Trump remembers conversations with Cohen about the project "up to as far as October, November", or right up until the election. "But, if it is, so what do I care?"
