Trump says he has a '2nd call' with Ukraine that 'nobody knows about'

President Trump and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky were apparently frequent phone buddies.

On Friday, Trump again defended his July 25 call with Zelensky to reporters — the call that eventually led House Democrats to begin an impeachment inquiry. Trump is still certain his call was "perfect," and if Democrats still aren't convinced, well, he said he has a "second call" they're welcome to as well.

"I have a second call, which nobody knows about, and I guess they want that to be produced as well," Trump said Friday, referring to the House committees investigating him. "If they want it, I'll give it to them. I haven't seen it recently. I have no problem giving it to them," Trump continued. Trump also acknowledged there's a phone call between Zelensky and Vice President Mike Pence, which he said he'll leave "up to Mike" to release.



When Trump said "nobody knows about" the other call, he was right. But now that they do, it's unlikely Democrats will just let it go.
