Trump Denies John Bolton Book's Ukraine Claims, Says Ex-Advisor 'Never Complained' During His 'Very Public Termination'

 President Donald Trump issued a strong denial of claims reportedly made by former National Security Advisor John Bolton in a new book detailing the president's alleged abuse of power in his dealings with Ukraine.
Citing a source with direct knowledge of Bolton's book manuscript, The New York Times reported Sunday that the president had told his national security advisor he wanted to continue withholding $391 million of military aid until Ukraine helped with investigations into Democrats, including possible 2020 rival Joe Biden.
But the president dismissed Bolton's apparent revelation. "I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens," Trump wrote on Twitter.
"In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book," he added.
