*BUG AT SOURCE* *NO CUTAWAYS AT SOURCE*
W/S Meeting with US President Donald Trump, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, his wife Jenny Morrison, and First Lady Melania in White House, Washington DC
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "It's a ridiculous story. It's a partisan whistleblower, shouldn't even have information. I've had conversations with many leaders, they're always appropriate. I think Scott can tell you that. Always appropriate, at the highest level, always appropriate. And anything I do, I fight for this country. I fight so strongly for this country. It's just another political hack job, that's all it is."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "It doesn't matter what I discussed. But I will say this, somebody ought to look into Joe Biden's statement because it was disgraceful, where he talked about billions of dollars that he's not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor is taken off the case. So, somebody ought to look into that and you wouldn't because he's a Democrat. And the fake news doesn't look into things like that. It's a disgrace. But I had a great conversation with numerous people, I don't even know exactly who you're talking about. But I had a great conversation with numerous people, numerous leaders, and I always look for the conversation that's going to help the United States the most. That's very important."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I don't know the identity of the whistleblower. I just hear it's a partisan person, meaning it comes out from another party. But I don't have any idea. But I can say that it was a totally appropriate conversation. It was actually a beautiful conversation, and this is no different than, you know, the press has had a very bad week with Justice Kavanaugh and all of those ridiculous charges and all of the mistakes made at the New York Times and other places. You've had a very bad week. And this will be better than all of them. This is another one. So keep playing it up because you will look really bad when it falls. I guess I'm about 22 and 0 and I'll keep it that way."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I don't want to talk about any conversation, other than to say, other than to say, 'Great conversation, totally appropriate conversation, couldn't have been better'. And keep asking questions, and build it up as big as possible so you can have a bigger downfall."

SCRIPT
US President Donald Trump commented on an internal whistleblower complaint calling it "another political hack job," during a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at the White House in Washington D.C., on Friday.
"It's a ridiculous story. It's a partisan whistleblower, shouldn't even have information. I've had conversations with many leaders, they're always appropriate," said Trump, before adding that he does not know the identity of the whistleblower.
The whistleblower's complaint reportedly includes a private conversation between Trump and a foreign leader, possibly of Ukraine. Trump reportedly made a promise, the content of which is still unclear, to the leader.
According to the media, the Trump administration refuses to share the report with Congress.
