At least one Giuliani has lost his West Wing access.
Andrew, the son of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was hired by President Donald Trump to work in the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs last year.
Trump asked his staff to promote the 33-year-old, but White House chief of staff John Kelly did not follow through on the order, according to Axios.
Kelly rescinded Andrew Giuliani’s blue visitor’s pass about two weeks ago, revoking his West Wing access. Now, he can’t enter the president’s inner sanctum without an escort.
The president bonded with the younger Giuliani playing golf, and ordered the promotion after dining with his dad at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Axios reported.
But Kelly and others believe the younger Giuliani, who enjoys a close relationship with Trump, “subverts the chain of command” and claim he has other issues in the workplace, sources told the site.
Prior to volunteering on the Trump campaign, Andrew Giuliani was mostly known for the lawsuit he filed against Duke University for being booted off the college’s golf team and his childhood antics during his father’s first inauguration, which were parodied on “Saturday Night Live.”
“The president has been there for me, for the good times, but more importantly through the bad,” Andrew Giuliani told Axios in a statement. “That’s just the kind of man he is. I’m grateful that he’s always been willing to give me his advice on personal matters and I consider him to be my good friend and even a father figure. His family is my family.”
Giuliani’s father joined the president’s personal legal team, handling special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal probe into Russian election meddling and the possibility that Trump associates coordinated with the Kremlin.
