President Trump: China would love if Joe Biden won the 2020 election

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani wants Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's son

Several Democrats took to social media to say they were appalled Giuliani was openly cultivating a relationship with foreign entities to try to discredit a potential 2020 presidential rival, on the heels of investigations by Mueller and Congress into contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton.

However, the attorney and former mayor of New York City apparently changed his mind about the trip after "two very reliable people" informed him that it would be a waste of time because "Zelensky is surrounded by people who are enemies of the president [Trump], and people who are - at least [in] one case - clearly corrupt and involved in this scheme".

"There was no pressure from anyone from the U.S.to close cases against Zlochevsky", Kasko said in an interview.

On Thursday, Giuliani said in an interview with The New York Times that he would be traveling to Kiev in an attempt make inquiries about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's recently concluded investigation into election meddling, as well as Biden's 2016 threat to withhold $1 billion in USA loan guarantees if Ukraine did not oust Viktor Shokin, a top prosecutor accused of ignoring corruption who was eventually voted out of office. The episode has come under the spotlight in the last week because at one point, the prosecutor had been investigating a natural gas company where Hunter Biden sat on the board and received substantial compensation. "So let the president go after him, but don't seek the help of a foreign government in your election".

The Biden campaign has previously declined to comment further and referred CNN to a statement a spokeswoman provided to The New York Times, which says Biden acted on Ukraine "without any regard for how it would or would not impact" Hunter's business interests. "I don't think it is".

Late Friday night, Giuliani said on Fox News that he made a decision to cancel his trip, but left open the possibility of one in the future.

Sekulow, Futerfas, and Lowell represent President Donald Trump , Donald Trump Jr ., and Ivanka Trump , respectively. The president on Tuesday said he believed that his son was being treated poorly.

"Explain to me why Biden shouldn't be investigated", Giuliani said, responding to criticism from Sen. "Unfortunately, this is precisely what is now happening - thanks to President Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani". According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report, Trump, met with then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Oval Office in October 2017 and "asked him to "take [a] look" at investigating" Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival in 2016.

"We're not meddling in an election, we're meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do", Mr. Giuliani told The New York Times about his trip.

Rep. Jerrod Nadler said American politics were in "a sorry state" if the president's lawyer was seeking foreign interference.

"Somebody could say it's improper", he said. "I mean, you're asking me a question I just haven't thought of".

In the Fox News interview, Giuliani said he won't go to Ukraine, "in order to remove any political suggestion".
