The line echoes a message Trump has repeated numerous times in recent days as he pushes back against the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into him and his administration’s dealings with Ukraine.
“Read the transcript!” Trump tweeted earlier Monday, referring to a White House memorandum of the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The House’s formal impeachment inquiry centers around a whistleblower complaint that is largely based on that call between Trump and the Ukrainian leader.

House Democrats have been probing whether Trump tied the release of military aid to Ukraine opening investigations into the Biden family and the 2016 election.

Trump has repeatedly pushed back against charges of wrongdoing, often describing the phone call as “perfect.” He has also said the partial transcript shows that nothing improper took place in his discussions with Ukraine.
The Trump campaign is currently selling “Read the Transcript” T-shirts like the ones rally attendees wore in Kentucky.
Trump traveled to Lexington, Ky., on Monday night to campaign for Gov. Matt Bevin (R) in his reelection race against state Attorney General Andy Beshear. Kentucky is one of three states to hold off-year elections on Tuesday, along with Virginia and Mississippi.
