Trump Tells State TV: I Hardly Know Sondland [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday dismissed U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s testimony that there was a quid pro quo in his efforts to press Ukraine for investigations, calling it “total nonsense.”

“I hardly know him,” Trump said of Sondland, a hotelier and GOP donor. “I have spoken to him a few times.” “I want nothing – he said that when he was testifying,” Trump said. “They didn’t put that in. That was the end of him. I turned off the television.”

“Sondland, I hardly know him,” Trump said again, adding that he saw him “hanging around” when he went to Europe. Sondland testified that he spoke to Trump about 20 times. Other witnesses have also described Sondland as boasting that he had the president’s ear.
