“You know there was no pressure,” President Donald Trump told media after the president of Ukraine reassured reporters that Trump did not push him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and the business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden.

“Nobody” pressured him to investigate either Biden, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said Wednesday at a United Nations press event in New York City, NY:

Reporter: “Have you felt any pressure from president trump to investigate Joe Biden and hunter Biden?”

Pres. Zelensky: “I think you read everything. So, I think you read texts. I'm sorry, but I don't want to be involved to democratic, open elections of U.S.A.

“No, sure. We had, I think good phone call. It was normal. We spoke about many things. So I think, and you read, that nobody push it, push me. Yes.”

Pres. Trump, then, took the opportunity to tell hostile media that he was on to them – because, they already knew he had done nothing wrong:

“In other words, no pressure - because, you know what, there was no pressure.

“And, you know – 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 could ask the question and I appreciate the answer. Go ahead.”
