Trump Put Hold On Military Aid To Ukraine Days Before Call To Ukrainian President

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Trump ordered a hold on military aid to Ukraine days before calling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Trump Administration says the hold was tied to concerns about corruption, and that Trump wanted to be sure the new Ukrainian president was going to take steps to end corruption. Some Democrat lawmakers see the hold on military aid as an effort by President Trump to pressure a foreign government to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.
