Trump Gets Roasted On Twitter After Claiming He ‘Hardly Knows’ His EU Ambassador: ‘You Appointed Him!’

Donald Trump’s strategy has been to distance himself from people that expose his scandals. He continued that pattern on Friday when he lashed out at the press on the White House lawn and claimed that he “hardly knows” Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the EU that was appointed by the president.

Sondland revised his House testimony this week to clarify that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky knew the US was going to withhold military aid until his country agreed to investigate a company that employed Hunter Biden, son of Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden.

“Gordon Sondland, a major donor and now ambassador to European Union and who spoke to Trump multiple times in recent months,” CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted. “After Sondland revised his testimony describing quid pro quo for Ukraine military aide, Trump says today: ‘Let me just tell you I hardly know the gentleman.’”

“Sondland gave $1 million to Trump’s inauguration and Trump rewarded him by making him Ambassador to the EU He is also not dead He is still Trump’s Ambassador to the EU,” journalist Judd Legum tweeted.

In a subsequent tweet, Legum pointed out that a month ago, “Trump appeared to know Sondland quite well, calling him ‘a really good man and great American,’” citing a tweet Trump fired off on October 8.

But it seems like Trump all of a sudden forgot he knew Sondland.

Twitter users decided to rip the president over his claims. Here are some of the best responses:
