In a call with House Republicans, Trump stated that impeachment is,” a bad thing to have on your resume.” The effect that impeachment would have on his legacy was the main concern. These statements from President Trump are a result of the recent impeachment inquiry launched by House Democrats.
The impeachment inquiry is in regard to a July 25 phone call between President Trump and newly elected Ukranian President, Volodymyr Zelensky. During the phone call, Trump appeared to pressure Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Trump has replied to the impeachment inquiry by calling it a hoax in the attempt to discredit the accusations. The full transcript of the text was released shortly after the report was released regarding the phone call between President Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
