President Trump tweeted on Monday, Oct. 7, that he was to ‘DRAIN THE SWAMP!’ – reminding voters it was a priority of his when he was elected to the top job.
Two days earlier, on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 5, President Trump compared his telephone call with the president of Ukraine—to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, using another of his catch phrases— “Witch Hunt!”
“So Crooked Hillary Clinton can delete and acid wash 33,000 emails AFTER getting a Subpoena from the United States Congress, but I can’t make one totally appropriate telephone call to the President of Ukraine? Witch Hunt!” President Trump tweeted.
Again, on Friday, Oct. 4, the president reiterated that he has “an obligation to end CORRUPTION,” referring to his July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky, where he asked Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s corruption in the Ukraine.
“And, by the way, likewise China should start an investigation into the Bidens. Because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine,” the president told reporters on the White House lawn, on Oct.3.
“As President I have an obligation to end CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign country or countries. It is done all the time. This has NOTHING to do with politics or a political campaign against the Bidens. This does have to do with their corruption!” President Trump tweeted.
President Trump also said to reporters on Monday, Sept. 30, “There has been tremendous corruption, and we’re seeking it. It’s called ‘drain the swamp.’”
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on “America’s Newsroom” with co-anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Sanders on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and put forward that instead of impeachment, President Trump is to be applauded for his efforts in “draining the swamp.”
“He is exposing the ‘real scandal,’ said Sarah Sanders.”The only corruption in this entire process has to do with the Bidens. It’s not the president. It’s not the White House. It’s the fact that Joe Biden was acting inappropriately and making probably sweetheart deals for his son,” she said.
