While supporters of the president wear-shirts that say “Read the Transcript,” and shout the phrase in unison – President Trump has said that he intends to release another transcript of an earlier call with the President of Ukraine, that will only go on to show how both calls were “perfect.”
While speaking to reporters over the past weekend, the once again used the opportunity to publically blast the impeachment inquiry and reiterated his claim that the July 25th discussion with Ukrainian President Zelensky was a “perfect call” and “totally appropriate.”
Trump then went on to say, due to popular demand, he would be releasing the transcript of an earlier, April conversation, with Zelensky.
“Now, they want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call — I’m willing to provide that,” stated President Trump. He indicated that we would not have to wait long for the second transcript.
The president then touted how he has been the “most transparent” president in history. He also celebrated his approval rating among Republican voters, which he said was at 95 percent.
The president has said he might be willing to read the transcript of the July 25th call live on television as a fireside chat. Last week, he announced he would read the call aloud to Americans to demonstrate that it was not what House Democrats alleged it to be.
“At some point, I’m going to sit down — perhaps as a fireside chat on live television — and I will read the transcript of the call,” stated President Trump. “People have to hear it — when you read it, it’s a straight call.”
He went on to slam the Democrat Party, saying the impeachment inquiry sets a “terrible precedent for other presidents.”
