Giuliani Compares Trump’s ‘Economic Genius’ to Woman Who Produces Work for FBI

The Trump adviser made the comment on ABC's "This Week."

The remarks sparked comment on social media by some who criticized the former New York mayor for using what they deemed to be dismissive language.

However others have suggested that the stress on “a woman” was not meant as a slight on her gender.

Giuliani’s office did not respond to ABC News’ request to elaborate on or clarify his comment.

“He’s a genius at how to take advantage of legal remedies that can help your company survive and grow. I want a man who’s a genius at figuring out how to take this country, that’s -- moving in the wrong direction, where we’ve had a basically jobless recovery, where we’ve had growth of less than 2 percent for two years,” he said.
