POTUS re-enacted his conversation with Sondland in dramatic fashion, recounting Sondland’s testimony beat by beat. 

At one point, Trump paused before recounting that Sondland testified he denied there was a quid pro quo and wanted nothing from Ukraine. 

“Ready, do you have the cameras rolling?” he asked. 

He also disputed what he said was Sondland’s characterization that the president was in a bad mood during their conversation.

“I’m always in a good mood. I don’t know what that is.”
