Donald Trump Accidentally Tells the Truth, Says Call With Ukrainian President 'Was Largely Corruption'

Donald Trump Accidentally Tells the Truth, Says Call With Ukrainian President 'Was Largely Corruption'

Well, he said it.

President Donald Trump is still grappling with controversy after pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

Claims that Joe Biden used the power of the Vice Presidency to end a Ukrainian investigation into the energy company his son served on as a board member have widely been debunked, but that didn't stop Trump from using the influence of the Oval Office in an attempt to trigger an investigation into his political opponent.


While corruption is nothing new for the Trump administration, what was surprising is Trump actually told the truth about it, to some degree, when speaking to reporters on Sunday morning.

Watch below.

Trump called his actions exactly what they were, saying:

"The conversation I had was largely congratulatory. It was largely corruption — all of the corruption taking place. It was 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."

Did he mean to say, "we discussed corruption"? Was he referring to his false claims about Biden? Is he just trolling us at this point?

Either way, Trump admitted to pressuring Zelensky to investigate the Bidens for his own political gain.

One might think that Trump is becoming more concerned as these allegations continue to blow up, but according to New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, the President is actually enjoying himself.

Then again, this doesn't look like the face of someone having fun.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), to the frustration of some Democratic party members, has remained hesitant on impeachment, but these new Ukraine developments appear to have rattled even her.

This isn't going away any time soon.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
