Speaking in his native language to Russian reporters, Ukraine President Volodymyr unequivocally declared that he had not been pressured by President Donald Trump to investigate either former Vice President Joe Biden or his son, Hunter Biden.
On his arrival in New York earlier this week, Zelensky was asked by Russian reporters whether he had come under “pressure” from the American president.
“No one is able to put pressure on me, since I am the president of an independent country,” Zelensky replied.
“The only person in the world who has this power is my six-year-old son,” added Zelensky, an actor and comedian with no political experience who was elected by a landslide last April.
Zelensky gave the same answer – in English - at a press event in New York City, NY on Wednesday, attesting that “Nobody” pressured him to investigate either Joe Biden or his son Hunter, as CNSNews.com reported:
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.”
