Andrew Harold Giuliani (born January 30, 1986)[1] is the current Public Liaison Assistant to President Donald Trump. He is the son of Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City.

Biography[edit]

Giuliani was born to Rudy Giuliani and Donna Hanover in 1986. He has one sister, Caroline. His father was elected mayor of New York City in 1993, and he attracted attention due to his behavior during the oath of office; Andrew would repeat parts of the oath along with Rudy.[2] Giuliani attended Saint Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey, and attended Duke University, where he played golf and aspired to become a professional golfer.[1] However, in 2008, Giuliani was cut from the team and sued the university, claiming, "his golf coach manufactured accusations against him to justify kicking him off the team to whittle the squad."[3] The lawsuit was dismissed.[2] He later worked as a sales intern at CapRok Capital.[4]

Giuliani also appeared on the Golf Channel show The Big Break twice.

On March 6, 2017, it was announced Giuliani would serve in the Trump administration as Public Liaison Assistant. His father had played a prominent role in Trump's 2016 campaign. He initially served as a cybersecurity advisor to the president[2][5] and joined the President's legal team in April 2018.

According to reporting by Axios, Giuliani's unescorted access to the West Wing was rescinded by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly around the beginning of June 2018.[6][7]

Personal life[edit]

In August 2016, Giuliani announced his engagement to Zivile Rezgyte (Lithuanian: Živilė Rezgytė), a Lithuanian-born real estate account executive.[8][9] They married in Manhattan on July 14, 2017.[10]
