Trump tweeted Thursday that Zelenskiy's comment that there was no blackmail during the July call "should immediately end the talk of impeachment!"
Zelensky has made himself available literally all day to reporters, meeting with a different group of seven to 10 reporters every half hour Thursday. More than 300 journalists were scheduled to get time with Mr. Zelensky during the all-day event.
Mr Zelensky said there were no conditions attached to him meeting Mr Trump, including whether he should investigate the activities of Hunter at Burisma.
"I don't want to interfere in US elections", Zelensky said.
A rough transcript of the call released by the White House shows Mr Trump asked Mr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, now a Democratic frontrunner for next year's White House election. Joe Biden is a leading contender for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential election.

Asked whether the Ukrainian version matched up to the U.S. one, Mr Zelensky said: "I didn't even check, but I think that it matches completely". "All of this while the average annual salary in Ukraine is $1700 per year".

During tense exchange at campaign stop in Los Angeles, the former vice president was pressed on whether Hunter Biden's role on the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, posed a conflict of interest while he was in government.
Zelenskiy told reporters Thursday that "we can't say yes or no" as to whether there was any interference without an investigation. However, contrary to the accusations, a newly uncovered memo suggests no military aid was mentioned, ruling out quid pro quo allegations.
Zelenskiy said the US has not provided any details of such interference. "And after our meeting America unblocked the aid". All but US$30-million of the USA aid was released in mid-September. Questions are not screened in advance, and all participants are allowed to ask questions. But the impeachment hearings mean that Ukraine will remain a central player in the USA drama through the 2020 presidential election and beyond.
He's treading carefully to ensure continued support from the U.S. while trying to make peace with powerful neighbor Russian Federation. "I understand you and what you want - I clearly understand, directly".
"I told him. please help to resolve it", Zelenskiy recalls. "I'm not ready to lose the lives of more people", he said.
Trump has called on both China and Ukraine to probe the Bidens, a request China rejected this week.
