According to the Post, the complaint was filed two and a half weeks after Trump had a call with recently elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. "Above all else we must defeat Donald Trump period and stop his abuse of power", Biden said.

"It was disgraceful, where he talked about billions of dollars he's not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor's taken off the case", Trump said, appearing to refer to January remarks when Biden discussed his interactions with Ukraine's leadership when serving as vice president.
