Donald Trump denies that there were any illegal demands on the Ukrainian government in his telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky.

U.S. President wrote about this on Twitter.

“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money,” Trump wrote.

“So they fabricate a story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine. Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!" he added.

The Wall Street Journal, referring to its sources, reported that President Trump repeatedly put pressure on the President of Ukraine during the July telephone call to conduct an investigation into the son of Joe Biden.

In June and August, Giuliani met with senior Ukrainian officials about the prospect of an investigation. Trump's lawyer believes that Biden, while working as vice president under Barack Obama, tried to protect the Ukrainian gas company associated with his son Hunter from the investigation.

In addition, in August, the New York Times reported that Giuliani spoke on the phone and held a personal meeting in Madrid with a senior Zelensky representative to encourage Ukraine to investigate a potential conflict of interest related to the Biden family.

The Ukrainian side this year stated that it has no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Joe Biden or his son Hunter Biden.
