Giuliani rejected Cohen's recent reported claim that Trump knew in advance of a meeting between top campaign officials and a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 election.
CNN recently released an audio recording of Michael Cohen and President Trump discussing the hush money payment of former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who allegedly had an affair with Trump 10 years ago.
Trump on Friday vehemently repeated his denial that he knew about the meeting, which is at the center of Mueller's probe, tweeting "NO", he "did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr".
Half of Republicans say that hearing criticisms of President Trump on the Russian Federation issue makes them want to defend him more.
The president's "taxi" comment is a reference to Mr. Cohen's former business partner, Evgeny "Taxi King" Friedman, who recently pleaded guilty in a NY state court to a charge of tax evasion in a plea deal.
"I put family and country first", he added, signaling that he is willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and prosecutors from the Southern District of NY, even if it puts President Trump in jeopardy.

A person familiar with the investigation confirmed the CNN report to The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak publicly. "The president they think is facing more pushback from the establishment than other presidents have, that's how they see it", Salvanto told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
Giuliani said the president is "disappointed" over Cohen's secret recordings, but said that they clear him from any suspicion of wrongdoing.
In an interview with ABC News earlier this month, Cohen declined to answer if Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting in advance, citing the advice of his lawyers and the ongoing investigation. Trump tweeted Friday Cohen was just "trying to make up stories" to distract from his own troubles.
In May, Giuliani called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer", Wallace noted.
"I expected something like this from Cohen", Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday. He said I only made it because I personally love the president and Melania.
In response, a source close to Cohen mocked Giuliani, saying, "You mean Rudy is floating reckless, fact-free, false, wild speculation as if he were unhinged?" He went on to question Cohen's choice of retaining lawyer Lanny Davis, suggesting because of the decision that Bill and Hillary Clinton might have been behind Cohen's claim.
Many legal experts, however, disagree that Trump has been exonerated by the Cohen tapes.
