USA: Giuliani’s trip to Ukraine done 'out of love' for US – Trump

United States, Washington DC
December 17, 2019 at 03:33 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump said his personal lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani travelled to Ukraine earlier this month "out of love," while speaking to the media in Washington DC on Monday.

Giuliani travelled to Ukraine in the beginning of December to reportedly meet with Ukrainian officials to conduct interviews for a documentary intended to defend Trump and debunk the current impeachment process against the US President.

"He's a great person who loves our country and he does this out of love, believe me, he does it out of love. He sees what goes on, he sees what's happening. He sees all of the hoax that happens when they talk about impeachment hoax or the 'Russian Collusion Delusion'," said Trump.

On a potential deal with China to pause the ongoing trade war with the US, Trump said the Chinese have already started purchasing US goods. "And China's already started to buy. I told them for five weeks it looked like we were going to get to a deal, I said 'start buying now, you got to start buying now' and they did," he said.

Trump went on to say that the US was watching North Korea "very closely". "I'd be disappointed if something would be in the works and if it is, we'll take care of it. But we'll see. We're watching it very closely," he added.
