Momentarily escaping the nation's capital as Democrats enter a new, public phase of the impeachment inquiry, President Donald Trump is returning to the campaign trail Thursday to stump in Louisiana for the second time in as many weeks.
A day after a U.S. diplomat told lawmakers his staff overheard the president pressing for a Ukrainian investigation into his rivals – a bombshell revelation the president has denied – Trump was hoping to turn the tide in Louisiana's razor-thin race for governor. Trump has not scheduled any additional rallies through the remainder of the year.
Trump retooled his campaign message this fall to focus on the impeachment investigation, which he has described as a "hoax." The Bossier City, Louisiana, rally is the first time he will meet with supporters since public hearings in that inquiry began Wednesday.

Thank-you! It looks like we're seeing 8 Trump rallies for every 1 Biden rally. Trump must really be losing BIG to Biden, like the honest, accurate, high-integrity polls continue to show. He's desperate!
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said on Thursday that the United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did not link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. “Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations,” Prystaiko said, according to Reuters. “You should ask him.” “I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance,” Prystaiko continued. “Yes, the investigations were mentioned, you know, in the conversation of the presidents. But there was no clear connection between these events.”
