Mitt Romney on Friday became the first Republican member of the U.S. Senate to admonish President Trump over his requests that the governments of China and Ukraine investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democratic presidential candidate.

On Friday, Trump defended asking China and Ukraine to investigate Biden, saying his motivation was not to aid his reelection campaign but to root out corruption.
