Donald Trump must believe that if he says something often enough it will come true. He told the Veterans of Foreign Wars that they should just ignore what they see and hear. Just believe him. Yet, why would he keep repeating this particular line about a call he made, one that ended him up in impeachment hearings?
‘Read the Transcript. It is PERFECT!’
There was a rough transcript of a July 25th call with the new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Even then, the president was referring to it as an “exact” transcription of the two men’s phone call.
Trump told White House reporters as his helicopter Marine One sat ready, according to The Washington Post:
‘They never thought I’d release the conversation. They never thought in a million years that I’d release the conversation. When ‘Liddle’ Adam Schiff saw the text, when he read it, he couldn’t believe it. When Nancy Pelosi, who worked a day early — Nancy Pelosi called for essentially impeachment — “Let’s impeach the President” — before she saw the transcript.’
The president continued talk to the reporters:
‘/And this is an exact word-for-word transcript of the conversation, right?’
One reporter interjected:
‘Well, it wasn’t.’
‘Taken by very talented stenographers. Listen to me.’
