US President Donald Trump revealed today that the White House could disclose next Tuesday the content of a second phone call he had with his similar Ukrainian Volodimir Zelenski, in the midst of the political trial investigation against him.RELATED
"They want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide it," the president told reporters at Andrews Base, before boarding the Air Force One presidential plane, for a visit to Tuscalusa, Alabama. " We will probably deliver it to you on Tuesday, but we have another transcript that is very important. They asked for it and I gladly give it. There has never been a president who has been so transparent, "Trump said, reiterating that he is the victim of a" witch hunt. , at the highest level, and it is very bad for our country. "" They will read the sec ond call and tell me if there is any problem with it, "said the head of the White House, who has rejected on numerous occasions that he has done something wrong .
Trump said that in April he spoke for the first time via telephone with the Ukrainian president, with whom he returned to communicate last July. This last call is the center of a political trial investigation against the president, approved last September by the House of Representatives, dominated by Democrats.
The US president is signaled to condition the delivery of aid to Ukraine to pressure his counterpart Zelenski, so that he accepted to initiate a corruption investigation against former Vice President Joe Biden, the main candidate for the Democratic nomination to the White House, and his son Hunter.
On the other hand, Trump said he does not care if the political trial hearings of Congress are held behind closed doors or in public, since, in his opinion, they should not be held.
“There should be nothing. There should be no political trial hearings, ”said the president, who described the testimonies collected so far as“ third party sayings, ”the CNN network reported.
