President Trump answered questions Sunday morning regarding reports that a whistleblower complaint may have accused him of wrongdoing related to a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump insisted that there was “absolutely nothing wrong” with the substance of the discussion and added he wanted the EU to put up more money for Ukraine. Fox news agency reported this.
Trump reportedly has been accused of asking Ukraine’s leader multiple times to work with Rudy Giuliani in investigating former Vice President Joe Biden’s son and using military aid as leverage. Trump denied making any improper requests.
“I said absolutely nothing wrong; it was perfect,” Trump said outside the White House before departing for Houston. “There was no quid pro quo, there was nothing,” he later added.
When asked about why he delayed military aid to Ukraine, Trump said it had nothing to do with the Biden family.
"Because I want Germany, and I want France, and I want the European Union to put up the money," Trump said. "And I didn't delay anything. We paid the military aid to the best of my knowledge."
Earlier, the US Congress asked the administration of US President Donald Trump to provide a transcript of the conversation between the US leader and Ukrainian President on July 25
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the State Department would not publish a telephone conversation between President of the United States Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky. He emphasized that the content of the negotiations was confidential, and therefore it would not be revealed.
