Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been in the national spotlight for years, but he may never have been more under fire than last September when he chaired the Democratic National Convention and was tapped by the president to fix a political firestorm.
Republicans were belittling the Democratic party platform for not including a mention of "God" or stating that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.
The Lead's Jake Tapper recently sat down with the LA mayor for an exit interview - he leaves office this summer - and he gave us some exclusive behind the scenes details, starting with a very unhappy White House.
Check out the video above for our interview.
