“ China should start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump said in front of cameras Thursday, adding that Ukraine should also look into the Bidens. Biden' s campaign slammed Trump ' s comments in a statement, calling them "a grotesque choice of lies over truth and self over country."

The president is facing an impeachment inquiry from House Democrats over a whistleblower complaint that accused Trump of "using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election." Trump is alleged to have used approved military aid as leverage to demand that Ukraine investigate Biden, who has generally led in Democratic primary polling.

The White House released a five-page summary of President Donald Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump has described the call as "perfect" and denied that the foreign aid was used as leverage to pressure Zelensky.

BEIJING — President Xi Jinping of China plans to make his first state visit to North Korea this week, a surprise move that could rattle his relationship with President Trump , who has twice met the North’ s leader, Kim Jong-un, and made his nuclear diplomacy with Mr. Kim a signature foreign policy project.

The White House has indicated that President Donald Trump is not overly concerned by Chinese leader Xi Jinping ' s recent move to consolidate power by abolishing presidential term limits, but perhaps he should be.

Democrats and other critics denounced Trump for invoking China, saying he wants yet another country to interfere in the next U.S. presidential election.

“Clearly the guy hasn’t figured out that when you solicit the help of a foreign government to interfere in the election of the President of the United States, you may be impeached. It is extraordinary,” Harris said.

Earlier in the week, Harris called on Twitter to suspend Trump's account, saying that the "words of the president matter."
