In a recent interview with GB News, Donald Trump claimed that he could put an end to the Ukraine war within 24 hours if he were the US president.
Trump cited his good relationship with Ukrainian and Russian presidents Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Vladimir Putin as the key factor for resolving the conflict.
He criticized Joe Biden’s approach towards the war and expressed his confidence in his own ability to handle the situation. Trump said that if he were in charge, he could easily accomplish the task of ending the war within a day.
“That deal would be easy. A lot of it has to do with the money. That war has to be stopped.
He said that Chinese President Xi Jinping would never even be talking about Taiwan.
“We had that conversation strongly,” he added.
On North Korea, he said, “I stopped North Korea from doing really bad things. And my relationship with Kim Jong Un is very good. Who knows what’s going to happen there?
“Iran was going to make a great deal. They were going to be happy. I was going to be happy. We’re going to have a great relationship.
“Now they’re out of control. They’re totally out of control. This world is blowing up around us.”
When asked about his chances of winning the presidential election, Donald Trump said he had “a very good chance”.
‘Biden allowed Russia to invade’
He went on to criticise his successor on Ukraine, claiming Biden had allowed Russia to invade.
“Putin never would have gotten into Ukraine if it weren’t for the incompetence of this [Biden] administration, this current administration,” the former president said.
He added, “I knew Putin very well, and he never mentioned going in.”
