Rudy Giuliani found himself trolled by a local landscaping company after the after the FBI raided his New York apartment.

Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia took to twitter to mock Donald Trump’s personal lawyer with a picture of agents outside their office and joked, “Wrong apartment. We kicked him out months ago.”

The company shot to fame in the days after last November’s presidential election, when Mr Giuliani hosted a bizarre press conference outside the business.

The unusual location of the high-profile media event led to suggestions that the Trump campaign had actually intended to book the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia.

Shortly after the former mayor of New York began the press conference media organisations called the presidential race for Joe Biden.

The trolling of Mr Giuliani came hours after FBI agents raided his Upper East Side apartment “at dawn” and removed various electronic devices.

The Manhattan US Attorney’s office is conducting a criminal investigation into Mr Giuliani’s business dealigns in Ukraine, which have been linked to the first impeachment of Mr Trump.

Mr Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, said that FBI agents had a search warrant focussed on Mr Giuliani’s alleged “failure to register as a foreign agent” while lobbying the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian government officials and businessmen.

Mr Costello has insisted that his client is innocent and the victim of anti-Trump prosecutors.
