New York's former mayor Rudy Giuliani plans to vote for Donald Trump

Donald Trump's bid for the White House has received a boost after New York's former mayor, Rudy Giuliani, said he is planning to vote for him in the city's Republican primary.

Mr Giuliani's spokesman, Jake Menges, said the former mayor considers Mr Trump "a friend", and always believed he would back him over his rival Ted Cruz.

Mr Giuliani did not make an official endorsement because he will not be doing any campaigning on Mr Trump's behalf.

Mr Giuliani, who was the city's mayor when it was attacked on September 11, made a failed bid for the 2008 Republican nomination.

He has made several previous public appearances with Mr Trump, including at a golf tournament last summer after Mr Trump announced his candidacy.

The New York primary will be held on April 19.
