President Trump Comes Face to Face With Ukrainian President Amid Scandal
The two actually have a lot in common: They were both TV stars before they were elected president.
President Trump met with the president of Ukraine Wednesday amid mounting questions surrounding a call between the two back in July.
The president spent the day schmoozing with world leaders in New York during the annual United Nations General Assembly. But everywhere he went he faced a barrage of questions about the phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asked him to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's dealings with Ukraine.
The question prompted the House of Representatives to launch an impeachment inquiry Tuesday afternoon.
Trump met with Zelensky Wednesday afternoon amid the uproar. After their meeting, Zelensky told reporters that he never felt "pushed" by Trump during their call.
Trump and Zelensky actually have a lot in common as they were both TV stars before they were elected president of their respective countries.
The 41-year-old Zelenksy was a comedian and actor; he even played the president of Ukraine in a popular sitcom similar to the HBO series “Veep.”
In a summary of the July call released Wednesday, Zelenksy seems to give Trump a bit of credit for his election victory, saying, “I would like to confess that I had an opportunity to learn from you. We used quite a few of your skills.”
