 Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says "everyone should calm down" about Donald Trump's sliding poll numbers, asserting there's still "every opportunity" for the GOP presidential nominee to win the November election.

In an interview with ABC News' "This Week," Giuliani used as an example the 1988 race between Democrat Michael Dukakis and George H.W. Bush is a case in point.

"Eight points down at this stage, of course, you would rather be ahead," Giuliani said.

But, he added, "George Bush, the first one, was 16 points behind running against Michael Dukakis in September. There's every opportunity for Trump to win this election."

The former mayor also complained Hillary Clinton's controversial comments don't "get the same attention that Trump's do," using the example of the backlash that followed the GOP nominee's verbal attacks on the bereaved family of Muslim American Army Capt. Humayun Khan.

"She lied to Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith who was killed at Benghazi," Giuliani said. "She said [the deadly terrorist attack in September 2012] was due to a video. So, I think that's far more serious, or at least it should get as much attention as all the attention that was paid to the comments that were made about the Khan family."

Giuliani said Trump is back on message.

"I think his reaching out and supporting [Sens.] John McCain and Kelly Ayotte in particular, and [House Speaker] Paul Ryan who had been critical of him a few days earlier shows he has the ability and the understanding that there will be disagreements and you have to be able to reach out to the entire party," he said. "I think you'll see more of that. I think you'll see him hit Hillary very hard."

He also defended Trump's attacks on the media, asserting "you in the media don't believe this, but you really don't treat [Republicans] the same way."

"Hillary, [former President] Bill [Clinton]. [President Barack] Obama, they get the benefit of the doubt," he said. "If Trump said 'I'm going to raise taxes on the middle class,' it would be all over the news. You would be questioning his sanity."
