Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky said he’s ready for his next phone call with President Trump. During an interview with CNN Friday, he stated he’s willing to speak with the United States President again if it will help Ukraine.
Zelensky’s’ phone call with President Trump last year was at the center of the impeachment probe after a whistle-blower alleged the U.S. president of pressuring Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

However, Zelensky denied this and thanked everyone in America for supporting Ukraine.
“If this way will help Ukraine I am ready for next call with Mr. Trump…” stated the Ukrainian president. “…I want to thank you guys and thank everybody and thank USA and just ordinary American people, first of all, for support of Ukraine.”
Zelensky said he’s trying to set up a White House meeting, which he wants to be special with positive outcomes for both countries.
