Supporters of President Donald Trump – in particular his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani – claim that Trump's much-criticized telephone conversation on July 25 with current President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky is appropriate because Biden was corrupt in pushing Poroshenko got rid of the state prosecutor. Giuliani says Biden is trying to help his son, Hunter Biden, who has financial ties in Ukraine. Giuliani doubled those points in a controversial interview Sunday with CNN's Union State, arguing that former prosecutor Viktor Shokin had been falsely targeted.
Shokin left the post in March 2016. Biden aggressively denied that he had done anything inappropriate.
Saying that he "does not remember all the specifics of particular persons," Cameron does not directly address what Biden may or may not have said as Vice President of President Barack Obama, but said the West has worked hard this time for to get Ukraine to clean up its notorious corrupt government. The West was heavily involved in Ukraine at the time because of its ongoing conflict with Russia, which took Crimea from Ukraine in 201
Biden's advocates said that what Biden did by pushing the Ukrainian leadership was in line with those goals.
"Ukraine cannot afford to lose hope again," Biden said, addressing the topic of corruption in a December 2015 visit, referring to corruption as "cancer."
Cameron also told Zachary that he believed the Trump administration had made the mistake of withdrawing the Iran nuclear deal – which was negotiated during his term as prime minister, with his assistance – without a new deal.
"The problem with getting out of it is that you're replacing something with a lot of uncertainty," Cameron said. "Definitely try to improve the deal, try it and make sure it lasts longer. But actually I'm moving away from it, without a real answer, I think it actually makes the world less safe than safer. "
Cameron's appearance on the show of Zakaria was created to promote his new book," About the Protocol, "which focuses broadly on his thoughts on Brexit.
When asked by Zachary whether he regretted authorizing a referendum on UK status in the European Union, Cameron acknowledged that he had done so, although he believed a Brexit vote was "inevitable" and that there should be questions allowed.
"I feel great sadness and regret about the situation we are in now and the difficulties we are facing," Cameron said. "I mean, they'll be done. We will solve this. But when I look back, as I do in the book, many regrets about things I could do differently. Maybe better negotiation, maybe different times. “
