Trump also invited Zelensky to visit the White House and assured full support.

"We will have a lot of things to talk about, but we are with you all the way," Trump said.

As we reported earlier, the transcript of a telephone conversation between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and President of USA Donald Trump lacked some phrases related to former US Vice President Joe Biden. This was stated by National Security Council member Alexander Vindman during testimony in Congress, The New York Times reports.

According to Vindman, he was not able to add important words and phrases to the transcript of the conversation between Trump and Zelensky. The missing phrases referred to Trump's statement that records on Biden’s corruption in Ukraine exist. The President of Ukraine also mentioned Burisma.
