    Read the transcript of Trump's conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky - CNNPolitics
    President Zelenskyy: I would like to tell you that I also have quite a few Ukrainian friends that live in the United States. Actually last time I traveled to the United States, I stayed in New York near Central Park and I stayed at the Trump Tower.

    Not a big deal- but just another sign of the little corruptions that before Trump would have been noted- as a foreign leader points out that he has done business with Trump's business's.

    Why did he name drop the Trump Tower to Donald Trump? Because he wanted Trump to know he stayed at a Trump property.

    Just another petty corruption going on.

    You really don't have a clue, do you? Trump Tower is not a hotel, it contains residential condos. Evidently he stayed with a friend that owns one of the residences.

    So... the guy stayed at Trump Tower when he was here.

    And later, he mentioned he did so to Trump.

    Is that it?

    Good work, Inspector Twinkle.

    You've done an excellent job digging around the bottom of the barrel for this important information.

    They'll probably put this in the pile of "Stuff to try impeachment with". Right after Wahhh trump poopyhead and boohoo trump killed the last dodo bird.
