The transcript of the July conversation between US President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is likely to be published. The American president himself expressed this hope to reporters in New York, where the 74th session of the UN General Assembly is being held. Deutsche Welle informs about this.

"If you see it (transcript - ed.), and I hope you get to see it soon, you will know that I did not do everything that is attributed to me," he said.

Earlier, Trump promised to discuss the publication of the details of his telephone conversation with Zelensky.

A U.S. whistleblower lodged a complaint about the contents of Trump’s conversation with Zelenskiy, leading to calls from some Democrats that Trump should be impeached for trying to enlist a foreign power to smear a domestic opponent.

The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times on Friday reported that Trump repeatedly asked the Ukrainian leader to investigate the involvement of Biden’s son, Hunter, in the Ukrainian energy company. He also asked Zelensky to work with his personal lawyer, Rudi Giuliani, who called on Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden and his family.

"We had a wonderful phone conversation with the president of Ukraine. Everyone knows that. It's just a witch hunt arranged by the Democrats," Trump told reporters after arriving at the UN General Assembly.

Trump gave a contradictory message about whether he would release a transcript of the call with the Ukrainian leader.

“I may do it because it was a very interesting call,” Trump said. “It was a very nice call. I hope you get to see it and I hope you get to see it soon,” he said.

But he added: “I don’t think it’s a great precedent to be releasing calls with foreign countries, heads of foreign countries. So I don’t think it’s a great precedent.”

Information about Trump's telephone conversation with a foreign leader sparked a political struggle between Democrats warning of a threat to national security and Republicans who opposed former Vice President Biden, a Democratic leader seeking to challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
