MSNBC cuts from Trump speech: 'We hate to do this, really, but the president isn't telling the truth'

MSNBC cut from President Trump’s press conference on Wednesday, claiming the president was repeating lies about his political rival Joe Biden as a “deflection” from the impeachment inquiry. 

“We hate to do this, really, but the president isn’t telling the truth,” MSNBC host Nicole Wallace said as the network cut from Trump’s speech

“These allegations against Joe Biden and Hunter Biden that he’s repeating have been investigated by the Ukrainians. ... The Wall Street Journal included in their report on Friday that the Ukrainians view this issue as having been investigated and adjudicated,” Wallace said.
