Trump said he got 'impeached for a perfect phone call' and it's already a meme


Just after impeachment proceedings began in the Senate on Thursday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to tweet in all caps: "I JUST GOT IMPEACHED FOR MAKING A PERFECT PHONE CALL!" 

Trump was impeached in the House for abuse of power after allegedly holding back aid to Ukraine in order to prompt an investigation into Joe Biden and for obstruction of Congress after refusing to testify and telling other officials to do the same. 

The phone call President Trump is referring to is a July conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During the phone call, Trump prompted Zelensky to launch investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
