In a tweet this Monday morning, President Trump shared a link from the Daily Mail which highlighted recent comments from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, who suggested in an interview that Trump didn't set any sort of quid pro quo agreement in exchange for releasing millions in military aid in exchange for Ukraine launching an investigation into his political rivals.
"Thank you to President Zelensky," Trump tweeted. "Case over. The Do Nothing Democrats should finally go back to work!"
But in the comment thread beneath his tweet, many found Trump's "case over" declaration to be laughable.
