Trump and his GOP allies have questioned Biden's efforts in 2016 as vice president in which he pushed for Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who had probed a Ukrainian energy company where his son Hunter Biden sat on the board. Both Bidens have denied any wrongdoing and no evidence has emerged that the elder Biden acted with his son's interest in mind.

"Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me," Trump said on the call with Zelensky, according to a memo released by the White House. 

On Thursday, Trump publicly encouraged both Ukraine and China to investigate Biden.
