Trump says could 'certainly' ask China's Xi Jinping to investigate Biden

US president Donald Trump lashed out at Democrats's impeaching him

"I gave the money because Rob Portman and others called me and asked", Trump said. "I would say that [Ukraine] President Zelinsky-if it were me, I would start an investigation into the Bidens".

"It's a very simple answer", Mr Trump said of his call with Mr Zelenskiy.

Trump froze $400 million in USA aid to Ukraine shortly before speaking to Zelenskiy, prompting accusations from Democrats that he had misused US foreign policy for personal gain.

Poroshenko also said that Ukraine didn't interfere in the 2016 USA election, rejecting an argument advanced by Trump and Giuliani as they've sought to undermine the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

Biden's more aggressive approach was on display late Wednesday in Nevada, where he unleashed one of his most forceful attacks yet against Trump and offered a detailed explanation of his vice presidential work that Trump is now trying to turn into a liability.

Trump froze $400m in United States aid to Ukraine shortly before he asked its president for the favour, prompting accusations from Democrats that he had misused U.S. foreign policy for personal gain.

President Trump on Thursday publicly called on China to investigate a political rival, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., in an extraordinary presidential request to a foreign country for help that could benefit him in the 2020 election.

Kate Bedingfield, Mr Biden's deputy campaign manager, said Mr Trump was "desperately clutching for conspiracy theories that have been debunked and dismissed by independent, credible news organisations". "Likewise China should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine".

President Donald Trump answers questions while departing the White House in Washington on October 3, 2019.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his first public comments on the phone call, came to Trump's defense Wednesday.

"Russia, if youre listening, I hope youre able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, Trump said at the time". The tweet took aim at the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and featured a clip of the former US Vice-President claiming that he'd never discussed any business dealings with his son Hunter.

Giuliani has said repeatedly in televised interviews that he was in frequent contact with Volker about his efforts, going so far as to show off text messages between the two men arranging meetings with Ukrainian officials in an effort to counter allegations he was conducting rogue foreign policy at the president's behest.

The state investigations bureau stated on Tuesday it had opened a legal case into potential abuse of workplace towards Mr Lutsenko following a grievance by the chairman of president Volodymyr Zelenskiy's Servant of the Individuals occasion, which received a parliamentary majority in July.
