Trump: The Transcript Proves It Was A “Nothing Call”

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Wednesday claimed the release of the transcript of a call between him and the Ukrainian president validated his assertions that it showed no wrongdoing, even as Democrats seized on its contents to bolster their calls for impeachment.

Trump reacted to the transcript shortly after it was released while attending a meeting on Venezuela at the United Nations. He told reporters that the transcript of his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was a “nothing call.”

“The letter was a great letter, meaning the letter revealing the call that was done at the insistence of myself. It was a friendly letter, there was no pressure,” Trump said. “The way you had that built up, that call it was going to be the call from hell. It turned out to be a nothing call other than a lot of people said ‘I never knew you could be so nice.'”
