Trump's newest attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, will also hit the Sunday circuit as he sits down with both CBS's "Face the Nation" and CNN's "State of the Union."

Giuliani sent shockwaves through Washington last month when he revealed for the first time publicly that Trump reimbursed his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen for a $130,000 hush-money payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels to silence her about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump.

Cohen paid Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, shortly before the 2016 presidential election. Trump has acknowledged reimbursing Cohen for the payment, but has denied that the affair with Daniels took place.

The payment is now being looked at for possible campaign finance law violations, and Cohen has reportedly told friends that he expects to be arrested soon amid the ongoing investigations into his lobbying work. Cohen has publicly denied the report. Trump said on Friday that Cohen is no longer his lawyer.

The report also raised questions surrounding FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, whose text message exchange provoked outrage among Trump's allies. In the messages, Strzok told Page "We'll stop it," after being asked, "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" The exchange, the report found, was "indicative of a biased state of mind."

The visit came amid growing tensions nationwide over the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that seeks to prosecute any immigrant who crosses into the U.S. illegally. Thousands of migrant children have been separated from their parents under the policy, according to the Department of Homeland Security, since it was implemented last month
