On Monday, a large group of Trump supporters was lined up behind the US president during a staged reelection rally in Lexington, Kentucky. The gathered people were seen wearing T-shirts reading: "Read the Transcript" - a reference to Trump's promise to read the already declassified transcript that has sparked impeachment proceedings in the United States against a sittign US president.

In September, US House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry against Trump, following a whistleblower complaint that claimed the president abused executive power by pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a 25 July phone call to investigate the possibility of corrupt activities by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who was linked to Ukrainian energy company Burisma. The Bidens claim that Trump’s accusations are false.
Last week, Trump said that he wanted to read the transcript of his telephone conversation with Zelensky out loud and in public.
The White House declassified what is claimed to be an unredacted transcript of the now-notorious phone call. The US president has slammed the Dems impeachment probe as a "witch hunt" designed to reverse the 2016 election results.
