President Donald Trump has accused Democrats and fake news media of trying to fabricate a ‘Ukraine Witch Hunt’ over the reports speculating about a whistleblower’s complaint involved the president’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Now that the Democrats and the Fake News Media have gone ‘bust’ on every other of their Witch Hunt schemes, they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others, call it the Ukraine Witch Hunt,” President Trump wrote in a tweet on Saturday morning, Sept. 21.

President Trump previously called special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia a “Witch Hunt,” a phrase he used to protect himself from unfavorable media and Democrats.

The president added that the new witch hunt is also aimed to protect his top Democrat rival Joe Biden, but said it “Will fail again!”

In a previous tweet, President Trump also accused the fake news media of avoiding reporting about Joe Biden, but building up the “whistleblower” story about him though he had “a perfectly fine and routine conversation” with the Ukrainian president.

“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money, so they fabricate a story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine. Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!” he wrote.

With new tweets, President Trump was also dismissing the reports alleging he made inappropriate statements to President Zelensky in a phone call in July. Some news media reported that the president urged the Ukrainian leader to investigate the former vice president’s son Hunter Biden, who worked for a Ukrainian gas company.

Responding to the allegations, President Trump said the fake news media “can have a bigger downfall” for the “whistleblower” story.
