Twitter users berate Trump over handwritten notes

Twitter users berate Trump over handwritten notes

By

Photographers took pictures of handwritten notes President Donald Trump held while talking to reporters at the White House lawn on Wednesday following the testimony of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland before the House Intelligence Committee earlier that day.

The notes read, "I want nothing I want nothing I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zellinsky to do the right thing. This is the final word from the Pres of the U.S."

The notes represented Trump's alleged statement to Sondland when the ambassador asked him what he wanted from Ukraine in exchange for military aid, according to Mediaite.

The notes were written with a black marker in all caps.

Trump is said to have poor eyesight but refuses to wear glasses in public, according to the Business Insider.

"What do you want from Ukraine, he asks me, screaming, What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all of these ideas and theories. This is ambassador Sondland speaking to me," Trump told reporters. "And now here is my response that he just gave. Ready? You have the cameras rolling? I want nothing. That's what I want from Ukraine. That's what I said, I want nothing. I said it twice."

Photos of the notes prompted a flood of reactions, mostly negative, from Twitter users.

After addressing reporters, the president stepped onto Air Force One to travel to Austin, Texas.

During his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday morning, Sondland claimed that there was a "quid pro quo" with Ukraine in that Trump would only meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky if Ukraine opened an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

"I know that members of this committee frequently frame these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a quid pro quo?" Sondland said. "As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting, the answer is yes."

However, Sondland also testified that “I never heard from President Trump that aid was conditioned on an announcement" of investigations and said Trump told him, "I want nothing," meaning Sondland never heard Trump explicitly mentioning a "quid pro quo."
