SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I did not watch it. I'm too busy to watch it. It's a witch hunt. It's a hoax. I'm too busy to watch it. So I'm sure I'll get a report. There's nothing, I have not been briefed. No, there's nothing there. I see they're using lawyers that are television lawyers. They took some guys off television, you know. I'm not surprised to see it because Schiff can't do his own questions."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "Turkey is watching the ISIS fighters. When I became president, ISIS was all over the place. I had no idea to the extent — in fact, it was shown to me about a month ago; we came in, it was a mess. And we took over 100 per cent of the caliphate. And last week, as you know, we killed its leader and its founder. And we're very proud of that fact. And we've also knocked out number two, and we have our eye out on number three who was supposed to become number one. But he's running right now. He's running for his life. But we have our sights right on him. So we are doing very well. ISIS is very much, very much a factor that's different than it was when I took over. When I took over, thousands and thousands of ISIS fighters were all over. Now they are mostly imprisoned. I will say the Kurds are watching over them and Turkey is also watching over them. And Turkey recently has captured over 100 ISIS fighters and they are taking care of them."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "We think we could be doing a $100 billion with Turkey, and right now we're doing about $20 billion. But we think that number should be easily a $100 billion, which would be great for Turkey and good for us. So, we're going to be expanding. We have our people from commerce here; that's one of the meetings we'll be having. And having that big relationship — I think is a very good one. So we think we can bring trade up very quickly to about a $100 billion between our countries.

Donald Trump, US President: "We'll be talking about it John. We'll be talking about the S400. We'll be talking about that. And we'll be talking about the F35 fighter jet."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "The relationship that we've had is good. And, you know, I've heard all the pundits three, four or five weeks ago, they were against what what I did. Now, all of a sudden, they say 'wow, that's really working well; why are we guarding other country's borders? We want to take care of our country' And they're saying it really is surprising what's happened. Plus, we have our troops out of there and we'll be bringing a lot of them back home. But again, we're keeping the oil. Thank you very much."
SCRIPT
US President Donald Trump said he was "too busy" to follow the first public impeachment hearing, which he described as a "witch hunt." Trump was speaking alongside Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House's Oval Office, in Washington DC on Wednesday.
"I did not watch it. I'm too busy to watch it. It's a witch hunt. It's a hoax. I'm too busy to watch it. So I'm sure I'll get a report," said Trump.
The US leader also touched upon his meeting with Erdogan, saying that among other things they would discuss boosting trade relations between both countries.
"We think we could be doing a $100 billion with Turkey, and right now we're doing about $20 billion. But we think that number should be easily a $100 billion, which would be great for Turkey and good for us," said Trump.
