U.S. President Donald Trump is tweeting his support for Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, after he engaged in a heated argument with Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, regarding the whistleblower complaint into Trump's call with Ukraine.
Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of “Meet the Press” had a total meltdown in his interview with highly reaspected Senator @RonJohnsonWI. Seems that a not very bright Chuck just wasn’t getting the answers he was looking for in order to make me look as bad as possible. I did NOTHING wrong!— Donald J.

Chuck Todd pressed the senator about a comment
featured in the Wall Street Journal
about frozen military aid being connected to a promise for investigations from Ukraine.
"At that suggestion, I winced. My reaction was: Oh, God. I don't want to see those two things combined," Johnson told the Wall Street Journal.
The senator replied, claiming that the media has portrayed a false narrative about the president, referencing the allegations of Russian collusion with Trump's campaign during the 2016 election.
"When I asked the president about it, he adimently denied it," Johnson said during the interview.
The Wisconsin senator serves as chair for the Governmental Affairs and Homeland Security committees.
