1. Wide of reporter asking Pres. Donald Trump question
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"First of all the impeachment inquiry is a scam. The conversation that I had with the Ukrainian president Zelinskiy was a very good conversation...It was a very cordial very good conversation. The mistake they made, the opponents, the opposition, the Democrats, the radical left, deep state whatever you want to call them. They came out with a whistleblower report before they saw the conversation. Had they waited one day Nancy Pelosi wouldn't have made a fool out of herself and she would have been able to say what I said. Because when she saw it she said 'This is not what the whistleblower said'."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"I'll tell you what they should really be looked at very strongly because what they did is unthinkable. What they did to this country is unthinkable. And it's lucky that I'm the president because I guess I don't know why a lot of people said very few people could handle it. I sort of thrive on it. You know why? Because, because it's so important that we get to the bottom. We went through the whole Mueller scam. Two and a half years. We went through that and I had three four days where it was like over. And then I'm walking into the United Nations and they released it as I'm walking in. Mr. Ambassador I'm walking in I'm going to meet with, I won't name but one of the top leaders of the world. And I see up on the screen and people start screaming about this scam called impeachment. You can't impeach a president for doing a great job. You can't impeach a president for having the lowest and best unemployment numbers that we've had in 51 years. You can't impeach a president for tax cuts and regulation cuts and creating... and even the ambassador would say the strongest economy in the world. We have the strongest economy in the world. This is a scam. And the people are wise to it and that's why my polls went up. I think they said 17 points in the last two or three days. I've never had that one. I've never had that one. So I think it's very sad for our country. I think it makes it harder to do my job but I do my job and I do it better than anybody who's done it for the first two and a half years based on results."
