Trump says he delayed aid to Ukraine to force other nations to contribute

President Trump said Tuesday he temporarily withheld military aid from Ukraine because he wanted other countries to contribute their fair share, denying he used it as leverage to pressure Ukraine’s leader to investigate the son of Democratic presidential front-runner Joseph R. Biden.

“As far as withholding funds, they were paid,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the United Nations. “They were fully paid. I want other countries to put up money. People called me and said ‘let it go,’ and I let it go.”
