Rudy Giuliani received a call recently from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, congratulating the the former mayor on the critical President Obama comments he made this week, according to CNN.

Guiliani reportedly relayed that story to CNN's Jim Acosta, the network's political director said Friday evening.

Guiliani grabbed headlines this week for reportedly telling those at a dinner Wednesday in Manhattan for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker that "I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.

"He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me."

The news of Jindal calling to congratulate Giuliani comes a day after the Louisiana governor released a statement saying he agreed with the "gist" of the former mayor's comments.

"If you are looking for someone to condemn the Mayor, look elsewhere," Jindal said in the statement.
