Rudy Giuliani boasted about New York City during Wednesday's debate.
(CNN) - Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, during the GOP debate on Wednesday night, said that "the FBI would disagree" with Fred Thompson for saying he didn't feel safe in New York City.
"People have the right to their own feelings," said Giuliani. "[But] the reality is, he was safer in New York than just about any other city in the United States after I was mayor for about three or four years."
Giuliani said New York City was the "safest large city" in the United States under his watch.
