President Trump has claimed that he only blocked military aid to Ukraine in order to pressure that country to crack down on corruption.

But his administration has repeatedly tried to slash billions from anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine and around the world.

Trump’s annual budget requests to Congress have repeatedly sought steep cuts to anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine and other countries. »
