Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani: Truth isn't truth
He was referring to a conversation former FBI Director James Comey said he had with Trump in the White House in February 2017. And Trump's account of that conversation differs markedly from Comey's. "We have plenty of credibility", Giuliani snapped.

Officials have evacuated some patients from a hospital in Sumbawa island and in Lombok's capital Mataram for fear of worse destruction.

Disaster mitigation agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said there were no reports so far of casualties or damage.

Many people were already staying in tents following the deadly quake in early August and its hundreds of aftershocks.

"When the quake happened most people were outside their homes or at shelters so there have not been that many fatalities" compared to the August 5 tremor, said national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

The shaking toppled motorcycles and there was damage to buildings in Sembalun sub-district, including a community hall that collapsed. "They all ran to the street", East Lombok resident Agus Salim told AFP.
