The ongoing inquiry has heard from a former EU ambassador who blew the whistle on Trump’s call, before which he withheld money from Ukraine.

The US President insisted that it was his decision – not China’s – as to whether the two superpowers strike a trade deal to end their ongoing trade war.

“It’s if I want to make it, not if they want to make it. I don’t know if I want to make it but you’ll find out very soon,” he told reporters.

“I don’t even know where that rumour started. We have absolutely nothing to do with it and we wouldn’t want to if you handed it to us on a silver platter, we want nothing to do with it.”
