Trump: "Not Looking To Hurt" Joe Biden, "He Needs All The Help He Can Get"


President Trump said Sunday on his way to Texas that he's "not looking to hurt" Joe Biden or his family amid fallout over accusations of corruption involving Biden's son and the Ukrainian government: "He's done some very bad things, but I'm not really looking to hurt him, to be honest. He needs all the help he can get."

On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to work with Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to investigate Biden and his son. In response, the Biden campaign called on the president to release a transcript of the call "so the American people can judge for themselves."

"The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don't want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine," Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House before departing on a trip to Texas.

Biden said Saturday he had "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," and accused Trump of "violating every basic norm of a president" by pressuring Zelensky to investigate his son.

"The corruption, and what [Biden] said, is a terrible thing," Trump told reporters Sunday.
