Donald Trump Backed By President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian Leader Says 'Nobody Pushed Me'

President Donald Trump on Wednesday received support from recently elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who insists that he didn't pressure him to investigate Joe Biden on their now-infamous phone call. With the transcript being released earlier today, it has been confirmed that Trump did raise the issue of a possible probe into the Biden family, though reports of that probe being linked to the U.S. withholding aid from Ukraine proved to be false, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Zelensky opened his address to the media on a light note that got a laugh from his audience.

"It's better to be on TV than by phone, I think."

Trump added a few comments in agreement just to drive the point home.

"In other words, there was no pressure and you know there was no pressure."
"Whatever he can do in terms of corruption, because the corruption is massive. When Biden's son walks away from Ukraine with millions of dollars and he knows nothing... that's corruption."

Relating to this incident during their phone call, Trump asked Zelensky to do what he could on the matter.

"The other thing, there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me."

In the question-and-answer session, Trump accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being taken over by the radical left, claiming that in a recent conversation with Pelosi she didn't know anything about guns or care about gun control.
