‘Delusional’ Trump hit with a furious backlash after he gets caught ‘confessing’ to ‘impeachable crimes’ in Ukraine scandal

Published

True to form President Donald Trump effectively doubled down on his earlier admission he talked to the president of Ukraine about former Vice President Joe Biden and “corruption.” And this time he added a new element: admitting he used hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid as leverage.

Speaking to reporters as he headed into the United Nations Monday the president of the United States had no trouble trashing his top political opponent while copping to seeking dirt on Biden and his son, Hunter.

“We’re supporting a country,” Trump said of Ukraine, from which he had withheld $250 million in military aid to fight Russia.

"'I don’t want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the four horsemen of calumny — fear, ignorance, bigotry and smear,' she said. 'I doubt if the Republican Party could — simply because I don’t believe the American people will uphold any political party that puts political exploitation above national interest. Surely, we Republicans aren’t that desperate for victory.'"
