President Trump has just responded to Gordon Sondland’s testimony and you can watch his full remarks below:
In his response, Trump says he doesn’t know Sondland very well but that he sounds like a nice guy.
He then proceeds to read a portion of Sondland’s testimony, the part where Sondland said Trump told him he wanted nothing, no quid pro quo from Ukraine, and affirms he did tell Sondland that exactly.
I should also note that VP Pence released a statement rejecting a portion of Sondland’s testimony:
