Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani reportedly "infuriated" former President Donald Trump's advisers by urging him to simply declare he won on election night 2020 "based on nothing."

An excerpt from the book I Alone Can Fix It published in The Washington Post Tuesday recounts election night 2020 inside the Trump campaign, describing how Giuliani started telling other guests at the White House's viewing party that he had "come up with a strategy for Trump and was trying to get into the president's private quarters to tell him about it." Some "thought Giuliani may have been drinking too much," according to the book.
