Trump Vows To End Russia -Ukraine War if Elected

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Former President Donald Trump has vowed that the war in Ukraine would be “settled in one day” if he is elected.

Trump made his remarks on Wednesday during a CNN town hall-style event in New Hampshire.

Breitbart reports: A student from Saint Anselm’s College asked the 45th president if he supports the Biden administration’s posture to continue sending military equipment to Ukraine.

Trump responded:

Here’s the thing — have to say it to start off, no longer matters — if I were president, this would have never happened, and even the Democrats admit that. Putin knew it would have never happened, and his pipeline would have never happened. A lot of things would never have happened … and all those dead people, both Russian and Ukrainian, they wouldn’t be dead today. And all those cities that are blown up and disintegrated right to the ground, that wouldn’t have happened.

Now, here’s the problem, we’ve given so far $171 billion. They’ve given — they meaning [the] European Union, which is approximately the same size altogether as our economy — they’ve given about $20 [billion]. So we’re at $170 and they’re at $20, you don’t have to know too much about history … or geography to realize they’re a little bit more affected than we are … so they’ve got to put up a lot more money because they’re taking advantage of us just like every other country did.

When CNN moderator Kaitlan Collins pressed Trump, asking if he would continue the Biden administration’s practice of supporting Ukraine with money and weapons if elected, Trump said he would meet with Russian President Vladamir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelensky and “have that war settled in one day — 24 hours.”

Collins went on to ask Trump who he wanted to win the war, prompting him to say, “I don’t think in terms of winning and losing. I think in terms of getting it settled, so we stop killing all these people.”

“I want everyone to stop dying. They’re dying, Russians and Ukrainians. I want them to stop dying,” he added. “And I’ll have that done … in 24 hours, I’ll have it done. You need the power of the presidency to do it.”
