Trump claims about stopping the Russian war
Despite the position of the Republican Party, and the clear and clear policy of the current US administration two years ago to support Ukraine against Russia in order to win the war,
Former US President Donald Trump refused to say whether he wanted Kiev or Moscow to win. However, he acknowledged that Russian President Vladimir Putin made a mistake by invading Ukrainian lands, considering that if he were president, that war would not have broken out.
Where he saw that he was able to end this conflict within 24 hours, if he was elected president for a new term.
As for Putin, Trump refrained, in his latest appearance on CNN, yesterday evening, Wednesday, from describing him as a “war criminal”, as did current President Joe Biden, except that he admitted that he had made a mistake. He said in response to a question about this characterization: “This topic must be discussed later.” And he added, “If you say that he is a war criminal, it will be very difficult to reach an agreement to stop the war later.”
However, the former Republican president acknowledged that “Putin made a mistake,” considering that if he had been in power, the master of the Kremlin would not have declared war on Ukraine.
He also refused to say whether he wanted Ukraine or Russia to win the war. Speaking to a live audience in New Hampshire, he said, “I don’t think in terms of winning and losing. I think in terms of settling it down.”
Trump, who opposes Republican policy in support of Kiev, added, “I want it to stop…the death, the Russians and the Ukrainians are dying.”
He also considered that he could stop this fighting within 24 hours, saying, “You need the power of the presidency to do that.”
He stressed that he could stop the war by negotiating directly with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “I will meet Putin. I will meet Zelensky. Both have weaknesses and both have strengths. Within 24 hours, this war will be settled. It will end,” he said.
It is also noteworthy that since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukrainian lands on February 24, 2022, Western countries, led by the United States, have stood with Kiev, supporting it with weapons and equipment, while imposing hundreds of sanctions on Moscow affecting all sectors, even politicians, businessmen and the wealthy.
