Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said that his office received some death threats after his controversial remark that President Obama doesn’t “love America,” CNN reported on Saturday.

Giuliani told CNN’s Jim Acosta that while most of the feedback he got was positive, his secretary answered the phone to a few death threats. Giuliani added that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) called to back up the ex-mayor’s comments.

“I don’t regret making the statement. I believe it. I don’t know if he loves America,” Giuliani told CNN. “I don’t feel the same enthusiasm from him for America.”

After Giuliani cam under fire for his comments on the president’s patriotism, the former mayor refused to back down and defended his comments numerous times.
