Ukrainian President Speaks for Himself: ‘Nobody Pushed Me’
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met with President Trump today while in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly. The two met and spoke to the media, mostly reiterating many of the topics covered in the now “controversial” July 25th phone call. President Trump expressed optimism and congratulations to Zelensky, while Zelensky thanked Trump for the support his country has been shown from the United States.
Primarily the overarching theme was that it is a new day for Ukraine’s position on the world stage now that Zelensky is in power. The Ukrainian President emphasized his determination to end corruption, and even have discussions with Russia. Zelensky told Trump “we don’t need help, we need support. Real support.”
When the press began to ask questions, things got interesting. The first question was of course regarding the infamous phone call between the two leaders. “President Zelensky have you felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden?” was the first question.
Zelensky responded “I think you have read everything” knowing the Memorandum of the call was released by the White House today. He added he doesn’t want to be involved in the elections of the U.S.A. “We had a good phone call, it was normal, we spoke about many things and so I think, and you already, that nobody pushed me.”
