The Trump campaign seemingly pulled its response to the memo on the Trump-Urkraine call straight from the horse’s mouth.

In a statement on Wednesday, Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale claimed the “facts” show Trump did “nothing wrong,” baselessly claiming the hubbub over the call is just part of Democrats’ and the media’s mission to “take out the President.”

“Because of their pure hatred for President Trump, desperate Democrats and the salivating media already had determined their mission: take out the President. The fact is that the President wants to fight the corruption in Washington, where the Bidens, the Clintons, and other career politicians have abused their power for personal gain for decades,” Parscale said. “The facts prove the President did nothing wrong. This is just another hoax from Democrats and the media, contributing to the landslide re-election of President Trump in 2020.”

The White house on Wednesday released its version of the Ukraine call, which effectively proves Trump asked the Ukrainian government for a “favor” when military funding was discussed and outright asked the new president to look into his political opponent former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump also asked Ukraine for help discrediting special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
