The White House on Friday released a memorandum of an April 21 phone call between President Donald Trump and then-Ukrainian President-elect Volodimyr Zelenskiy.
Trump in the call extended an invitation to bring Zelenskiy to the White House, according to the four-page memo, which notes in a footnote that it is “not a verbatim transcript of a discussion.”
“I’d like to invite you to the White House. We’ll have a lot of things to talk about, but we’re with you all the way,” Trump said.
Yovanovitch testified behind closed doors last month that she heard the call was largely uneventful. “It was a good call,” it was brief, and Trump and Zelenskiy “hit it off,” Yovanovitch said she was told.
