Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy says he by no means spoke with U.S. President Donald Trump from the place of a “quid pro quo”.
Mr. Trump later claimed Mr. Zelenskiy had stated Mr. Trump had achieved nothing flawed. However Mr. Zelenskiy didn’t go that far in a Time interview printed on December 2.
Mr. Zelenskiy stated, “I never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing. I don’t want us to look like beggars.”
Mr. Trump later tweeted, “The President of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls.”
Mr. Trump’s July 25 name with Mr. Zelenskiy is on the centre of the Home impeachment probe. He presses Ukraine for investigations into Democrats as U.S. support to Ukraine is withheld.
