Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, is continuing to encourage Ukraine's government to investigate the son of Joe Biden, Trump's current top-polling 2020 rival, the New York Times reports.

The impact: U.S. government officials who handle foreign policy related to Ukraine blame Giuliani for complicating Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's diplomatic visit to the White House, per the NYT. Trump and Zelensky have not yet met in person.
