President Trump is pulling no punches regarding his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Following Cohen's guilty plea on Thursday where he admitted to lying to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, the president blasted his former attorney as a "weak man" who's lying to get a reduced prison sentence.
