Audio of the call was aired by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as Cuomo admitted he had received questions about his behavior with women at his former job with ABC News, according to Breitbart.
"You know, I'm always careful when I talk to media. Do you know how many f---ing phone calls I've gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about things they've heard about me, to try 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 a hotel and open his bathrobe.' Do I look like the kind of f---ing guy who's gotta do that?" Cuomo said.
"Women who do work there saying, 'oh yeah, you know, 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 he made me really uncomfortable,'" Cuomo said, describing internal allegations against him. "I mean what the f---! It's a problem. And now ... I'm careful with the media, always. I've always told you: The media is not your friend."

“Will Fredo be fired by Fake News CNN?” Trump asked, using his favorite nickname for the CNN anchor. “He speaks with great disrespect about women, and it will only get worse. Fredo’s Ratings are bad, so this is the time. Always terrible to speak to sleazebags, especially when you are being recorded. CNN has no choice, Fredo must go!”

The only people in possession of these recordings are me, @DOJ, @POTUS & Trump Org. I did not give this recording or authorization for its use to @FoxNews or anyone. @POTUS and cronies violated my First amendment rights and now this; all to discredit me and my book.
