Not much has been written about the Ukranian president’s side of the July 25, 2019 phone call with President Trump.1 The media has pored over what Trump said, but what I also found striking was how similar Zelensky’s words were to Trump’s. It’s as if Zelensky was trying to suck up to Trump by mimicking him.

Don’t believe me? Take this quiz to see if you can try to tell them apart.2

  1. I did find this New York Times piece touching on Zelensky’s choice of words while writing up this post. (Don’t click unless you want to spoil some questions.) 

  2. Inspired by Bloomberg’s Who Said It: Trump or Biden?
