The Saturday focus for President Donald Trump’s Tweetstorm was Ukraine – as in, you have to crane to see any wrongdoing, according to the Commander-in-Tweet.

“Nothing was said that was in any way wrong,” Trump tweeted of his July phone conversation with Zelensky.

The focus should be on the Bidens, Trump insisted. He asked for a focus on “the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money,”
