He was New York's famously tough-on-crime mayor — and he's convinced the president is too tough on police.

Appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday morning, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani doubled down on his indictment of those in power.

When host Major Garrett asked Giuliani whether he'd like to walk back his comments about President Barack Obama helping foster an atmosphere of "hating American police", the former mayor was quick with the comeback.

"Not at all," Giuliani said.

His reason: Obama's close working relationship with Al Sharpton.

“If you would like to have a poster boy for hating the police, it’s Al Sharpton,” Giuliani said. “You make Al Sharpton a close adviser, you are going to turn the police in America against you.”

Giuliani went on to say that “actions speak louder than words” and that as long as Obama remains close with Sharpton, he'll have a troubled relationship with cops.
