Trump: Rick Perry Made Me Do It

Trump: Rick Perry Made Me Do It October 7, 2019

Trump is frantic to find someone else to blame his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and he’s come up with the most ridiculous scapegoat imaginable: Rick Perry made me do it. He said this on a private call with Republican members of Congress — the phone call was “perfect” but it’s all his fault!

Behind the scenes: Trump made these comments during a conference call with House members on Friday, according to 3 sources on the call.

Per the sources, Trump rattled off the same things he has been saying publicly — that his call with Zelensky was “perfect”and he did nothing wrong.

But he then threw Perry into the mix and said something to the effect of: “Not a lot of people know this but, I didn’t even want to make the call. The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to. Something about an LNG [liquefied natural gas] plant,” one source said, recalling the president’s comments. 2 other sources confirmed the first source’s recollection.

That’s funny because at no point in the call, or in the many text messages that have been released by a State Department employee, is there even a hint of a mention of any LNG plant. Not one. As usual, Trump is just blindly throwing excuses at the wall and trying to rewrite history.
