The Associated Press was forced to delete an innacurate tweet in which it claimed President Donald Trump had contradicted Ambassador Gordon Sondland, when what the president said was actually a direct quote from Sondland's testimony.

The now-deleted tweet read, "Contradicting the testimony of his own ambassador, President Trump says he wanted ‘nothing’ from Ukriane and says the #ImpeachmentHearings should be brought to an end."

Sondland, however testified that President Trump told him, "I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo."
