PRESIDENT Donald Trump has slammed "Fredo" Chris Cuomo and hinted at more Michael Cohen secret tapes with "other media scum reporters."
Cuomo told his friend Cohen, the president's former lawyer, that he was accused of touching a woman in an elevator in leaked audio.
Trump slammed Cuomo again on Tuesday morning, tweeting: "Fredos got a convicted lier (sic) for a lawyer, who may be going back to jail for an even longer time – additional lies to Congress.
"Many more tapes of him with Fredo and other media scum reporters. Reveals how deranged & sick they all are!"
Host Tucker Carlson revealed the tape of the alleged conversation between the pair during his Fox News show last month.
The tape begins by Cuomo allegedly being heard telling the lawyer: "I'm always careful when I talk to media, you know.
"Do you know how many f**king phone calls I've gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about me and trying to get stories about me when I was at ABC?
"Guys calling and saying, 'I heard he was the Charlie Rose of ABC, he used to invite women to his hotel and open his bathrobe.'
"Do I look like the kind of f**king guy who's gotta do that?"
Cohen allegedly quipped, "Sure, why not?"
Cuomo allegedly continued to fume: "Women who do work there saying 'Oh yeah some of these men' – naming me with other guys – 'you know we bumped into each other once in the elevator and he put his hand on my shoulder and made me really uncomfortable,' I mean what the f**k."
"It's a problem," Cohen allegedly reassured him.
Cuomo allegedly concluded: "I'm careful with the media always, I've always told you the media is not your friend."
It has not been made clear when the audio was recorded, nor how it was obtained.
Last week, Trump called for CNN to fire anchor Cuomo, tweeting: "Will Fredo be fired by Fake News @CNN?
"He speaks with great disrespect about women, and it will only get worse. Fredo’s Ratings are bad, so this is the time," the president wrote.
"Always terrible to speak to sleazebags, especially when you are being recorded. CNN has no choice, Fredo must go!"
