Rudy Giuliani berated fellow former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg for having now “turned on” the stop-and-frisk policy he once supported during his tenure.

In an interview airing Sunday with radio show host John Catsimatidis, Giuliani, now President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, said Bloomberg, who is a Democratic presidential contender, used to be “as enthusiastic about it as I am.”

"What is this stuff that he’s condemning stop-and-frisk?" Giuliani said, The Hill reported ahead of the airing. "I did it for eight years. He did it for 12. I did 100 [thousand] stops. He did 600 [thousand]."

"Now that [Bloomberg] has turned on the program, and turned on [former New York City Police Commissioner Ray] Kelly… He was 100 percent in favor of that program,” he added.

Bloomberg succeeded Giuliani as New York City's mayor in 2002. At the time, Bloomberg ran as a Republican and Giuliani endorsed him. 

Stop-and-frisk was ceased in 2013, at the end of Bloomberg’s tenure at City Hall, with the courts ruling the police violated the constitutional rights of minorities in the city. But in 2015, Bloomberg defended the program, and said "95%" of "murders and murderers and murder victims" are male minorities between the ages of 16 to 25.

On Saturday, during a campaign event in Richmond, Va., Bloomberg apologized for his prior stance.

"I should have acted sooner, and I should have stopped it, and I didn't, and I apologize that for that,” he said at a campaign event in Richmond, The Hill reported.
