Trump addresses his communication with Ukraine leader on Biden
US president Donald Trump repeatedly prodded Ukraineโ€™s president to look into Democratic rival Joe Biden, according to a rough transcript summarising a call between the two leaders. In the July 25 call, Mr Trump raised unsubstantiated allegations that the former vice president sought to interfere with a Ukrainian prosecutorโ€™s investigation of his son Hunter. According to the memo, Mr Trump said to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy: โ€œI heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and thatโ€™s really unfair. โ€œA lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved.โ€
