Donald Trump, who has been in critics for a while for pressurizing the Ukrainian President to put an investigation against his 2020 election rival Joe Biden and his son and when asked about, Mr. Trump denied that he had any conversation regarding his 2020 election rival Joe Biden and his son.

President Donald Trump admission about the fact that he had a phone call with the Ukrainian president Mr Zelensky fuelled calls for Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings in Congress.

Mr Trump on Sunday told reporters that the call with Mr Zelensky on July 25 was nothing but to congratulate him on his victory in the election, Donald Trump however mentioned corruption and "largely the fact that we don't want our people, like Vice-President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine"

But he insisted he had done "absolutely nothing wrong". He has previously accused the whistleblower of being "partisan" and said he knew all his phone calls to foreign leaders were listened to by US agencies. According to BBC.

While Mr Trump suggested a transcript could be released, senior Trump administration officials said it would be inappropriate for private conversations between world leaders to be made public.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has quoted sources as saying Mr Trump had urged Mr Zelensky about eight times to work with his lawyer Rudy Giuliani on an investigation into Hunter Biden, but had not offered anything in return.

The controversy over whether Mr Trump pushed his Ukrainian counterpart to launch corruption investigations against the Bidens has dominated Washington in recent days.

It was sparked after revelations in US media that an intelligence whistleblower had filed a complaint over Mr Trump's communications with a foreign leader and a "promise" that was allegedly made

The Trump administration was blocking the way for whistleblower complaint to be handed over to Congress, despite the intelligence inspector general judging it to be "urgent".
