President Donald Trump, speaking at his first news conference since the impeachment inquiry, says he placed “no pressure” on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden.
Trump denied that he tried to pressure Ukraine’s president “under the form of political threat.”
“I didn’t threaten anybody,” Trump said. It’s all a big hoax.”
Trump commented Wednesday during a meeting in New York with Zelenskiy on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meeting of world leaders. (You can watch the entire news conference in the video player below.)
