Donald Trump denies quid pro quo after ambassador’s testimony

Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a man who donated $1million to Donald Trump’s election campaign, flatly contradicted the president’s key line of defence in the impeachment inquiry.

He told the hearings that a visit to the US by the Ukrainian president was conditional on the country launching an investigation into Donald Trump’s political rivals.

In his own words – there was a quid pro quo.

President Trumps response was immediate – reading off notes he said he’d told Ambassador Sondland “I want nothing from Ukraine”.
