US President Donald Trump has said he did not watch Wednesday’s public hearing in the impeachment inquiry against him “for one minute”.
He dismissed the process as a “witch-hunt”, a “joke”, and “a hoax”.
The president said the phone call with the Ukrainian president around which the inquiry centres was “perfect” and “highly appropriate”.
He was speaking at a press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and said their meeting was “much more important” than the hearing.
However, Mr Trump had earlier retweeted clips of the hearing.
