As expected, President Donald Trump has defended his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani's recent Ukraine trip amid impeachment proceedings.

"He's a great person who loves our country, and he does this out of love, believe me. He does it out of love," Trump told reporters during an Oval Office event on regulatory reform, per The Hill.

When asked what was reported back to Trump about his visit, he simply replied, "Not too much."

Just last week, Trump shared that Giuliani will deliver a report to Congress and to Attorney General William Barr, his latest visit to Ukraine.

"He's going to make a report, I think to the attorney general and to Congress. He says he has a lot of good information. I have not spoken to him about that information yet," Trump told reporters.

"He has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress ... and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice," he added. "I hear he has found plenty." 

Giuliani traveled to Ukraine earlier this month, which raised several red flags as the House is currently conductin and impeachment investigation into whether the president abused his power. 

"I think it's a little weird that Rudy Giuliani is over in the Ukraine right now, and I'm not here to defend Rudy Giuliani," Rep. Matt Gaetz, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said on CNN at the time. "There's apparently an investigation going on, and that will go where it goes."
