Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and failed 2008 presidential candidate, predicts an easy re-election for Trump in the 2020 elections.

“They need someone new, who would be more threatening to us,” Giuliani said of potential Democratic opponents to The Huffington Post. “They’ve got to hit us with a surprise.” He added, “The unknown frightens me more than Elizabeth Warren or Biden.”

Giuliani dedicated several more comments to personally attacking former Vice President Joe Biden.
