(CNN) — President Donald Trump reacted to the news that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress about the Russia investigation, calling his former lawyer "very weak."
"He's a weak person," Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn before departing for Buenos Aires, Argentina.
"He was convicted with a fairly long-term sentence with things unrelated to the Trump Organization," Trump said, citing Cohen's legal issues with mortgages and the IRS.
Trump speculated that "what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence."
