Andrew Harold Giuliani (born January 30, 1986)[1] is an American political aide serving as the Public Liaison Assistant to President Donald Trump. He is the son of Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump's personal attorney and former mayor of New York City.

Early life and education[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 his father.[2] He was raised in the Catholic faith and was baptized by Monsignor Alan Placa.[3]

Giuliani attended Saint Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Duke University, where he studied markets and management and sociology.[1][4]

While at Duke, Giuliani was a member of the men's golf team and planned on pursuing a career in professional golf.[5] 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."[6] The lawsuit was dismissed.[2]

Career[edit]

After college, Giuliani worked as a sales intern at CapRok Capital in Rye, New York.[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. His title is a Public Liaison Assistant in the Office of Public Liaison. In that role, helps arrange sports teams’ visits to the White House.[7][2][8] Giuliani receives a salary of $90,700. [7] He has also represented his office in White House meetings on the opioid crisis.[7]

Giuliani's unescorted access to the West Wing was rescinded by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly around the beginning of June 2018.[9][10] After Kelly's departure, Mick Mulvaney restored Giuliani's access.[7]

Personal life[edit]

In August 2016, Giuliani announced his engagement to Zivile Rezgyte (Lithuanian: Živilė Rezgytė), a Lithuanian-born real estate account executive.[11][12] They married in a Catholic ceremony at the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village in Manhattan on July 14, 2017.[13] He is a regular golf partner of Donald Trump.[14]
