Ukrainian president addresses Trump phone call: ‘Nobody pushed me’

Ukrainian president addresses Trump phone call: ‘Nobody pushed me’


[VZ] It’s a great pleasure to me
to be here. It’s better to be on TV
than by phone, I think. [Laughter] I think you read everything.
I think you read the text. I’m sorry but I don’t want to be
involved with the democratic, open elections of the USA. No, you heard that we had, I think,
a good phone call. It was normal.
We spoke about many things. I think, and you read it,
that nobody pushed me. [DT] In other words, no pressure.
[Reporters’ questions] Because you know what,
there was no pressure. And, by the way, you know
there was no pressure. All you have to do is see it,
what went on on the call. But you know that. But you can ask the question
and I appreciate the answer. Go ahead. Over the last fairly
short period of time, you’ve really made
some progress with Russia. I hear a lot of progress
has been made. Just keep it going. It’d be nice to end that whole disaster. [VZ] My priority is to stop the war
on Donbass and to get back our territories: Crimea and Donbass, Luhansk. Thank you for your support in this case. [DT] If you remember, you lost Crimea
during a different administration, not during the Trump administration. [VZ] Yeah, so you have a chance
to help us. [DT] That’s right, I do. But that was during the Obama
administration that you lost Crimea. The United States helps Ukraine
but I think that other countries should help Ukraine much more
than they’re doing. Germany, France, the European
Union nations. They really should help you
a lot more. They have to feel a little bit
guilty about it because they don’t do what
they should be doing. When I say work, I’m referring
to money. They should put up more money. We’ve put up a lot of money. I gave you anti-tank busters
that, frankly, president Obama was sending you pillows
and sheets. [Reporter] Mr President, do you believe
that the emails from Hillary Clinton, do you believe that they’re in Ukraine? [DT] I think they could be. Do you mean the 30,000
that she deleted? [Rep] Yes. [DT] Yeah, I think they could
very well be. One of the great crimes committed
is Hillary Clinton deleting 33,000 emails after Congress
sent her a subpoena. Think of that. And she deletes them and then
she said, as I remember it, that: “Oh well, they had to do
with the wedding and yoga.” She does a lot of yoga, right?

  1. There is no way that either trump or anyone else is going to be able to get Crimea back. Trump invited Zelensky under these falls promises to to testify on tv to help his own situation.

  2. Drumpf in fact tried to 'convince' Zelenskiy to dig dirt about Biden. While it would surely be much worse, if agent Orange tried to force it, it's bad enough that he involved foreign leaders in his dirty little game to discredit domestic political opponents.

    This guy has no integrity, no morals, no diplomacy etc. But he is President of the United 'shdase' of America. What does it tell us (the world) about the current state, America is in? No wonder that almost all (at least those, who don't entirely depend on America) so called allies are reassessing their relationship to the US.

  4. Trump pressed Ukraine leader to investigate Biden, memo reveals ► https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/sep/25/ukraine-trump-meeting-impeachment-inquiry-whistleblower-conversation

  5. Huffington Post edited out the first 10 seconds of this video. They just lost the 2020 election to Trump. Trump is a sure thing.

  6. Lol does he know the meaning of being pressured? You don't want to be involved but someone is forcing you to be involved. Then you sit with the very person and says nobody pushed you. Yeah, it's nobody but the President of the United States

  7. The look on Zelensky’s face when Trump told him ‘to start talking with President Putin to resolve his problem’… Ha!.. Oh, hang on.. selectively edited out.

  8. It looks like a bullied kid explaining what happened to the principal with the bully right next to him 😂😂😂 it’s so obvious he’s covering for Trump.

  9. Russia the only reason USA and Russia are in bad relations is Dems Trump really really really wants to work closer with you this is a fact.

  10. THE CORRUPT DEMOCRATIC PARTY DO NOT SELECT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITES STATES OF AMERICA. THE CONSTITUTION OF AMERICA IS THE ABSOLUTE POWER OF AMERICA ! WE THE LEGAL PEOPLE OF AMERICA HAVE THE LEGAL VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA ! THE CORRUPT DEMOCRATIC COUP DO NOT CONTROL THE AMERICAN VOTERS

  11. I was in the Ukraine when Obama bought all new uniforms and cars for all of Ukraine police department. I only use to see old Lada and niva. He also took photos in Kyivs with police along with the cars . What is Trump really saying!

  12. Trump did in fact hold back millions of aid money to Ukraine before there phone call. Did Ukraine ever receive the aid funds??

  13. For those thinking this statement is exculpatory, it's kind of like questioning an abused wife with her husband and saying "well, she said she tripped on the stairs."

  14. The Ukraine President could have easily exposed Trump right then and there if his much needed military aid was being withheld for selfish purposes. But he didn't because Trump did nothing wrong.

  15. After watching this after the circus that this has come to be, I can easily say that Trump would blame Obama for Putin annexing Crimea. The US has no jurisdiction or treaty to protect Ukraine. Ukraine is in a bad neighborhood to oversimplify it.

  16. Really Ukraine !!! You have a chance to be a hero to the whole world but then again I guess you are just the same as Trump . Now we have two lying slime balls in the spot light .

  17. What would you say as you sit next to the guy who is bullying you.

    This was Sept 25th, if there was not a threat involved at some level congress would have dropped the investigation

  18. The president of Ukraine didn't say that there was no pressure DEVIL!!! While UR looking at him with UR devil eyes DEVIL!!! Matter of fact, the president of Ukraine looked a little scared because he knew that he was in the presence of evil DEVIL!!!
