Trump Suggests that as President, He Would Settle Ukraine War Within 24 Hours

During the CNN Presidential Town Hall meeting with Donald Trump moderated by Kaitlan Collins, several controversial topics were raised. However, the aid issue to Ukraine caused the most considerable international stir. 

A student from Saint Anselm College asked Donald Trump whether he supports the current administration policy of providing military help for Ukraine. He said, “We are giving away so much equipment; we don't have ammunition for ourselves right now,”. He also attacked Europe Union, claiming that Europeans gave Ukraine 20 billion dollars compared to the U.S. 170 billion dollars in aid.

The most controversial, however, was the suggestion of the Former President that he could resolve the Russian-Ukrainian war within “one day, 24 hours”. Asked how he plans to settle the war, he suggested that he meet with Putin and Zalensky, which would resolve the war within 24 hours. He also admits that instead of a decisive victory, the more important for him is to stop killing people on both sites.

What’s even more, Trump called Putin “a smart guy,” but admitted that Putin is a leader, that “made a tremendous mistake.”. In elaboration, Trump said, “His mistake was going in. He would have never gone in if I was president”. 

Trump's position met a rather muted diplomatic response over the Atlantic Ocean. On the one hand, it was publicly discussed in the media. On the other hand, experts say that Trump has a “history of making outlandish and contradictory statements on foreign affairs”.

Volodymyr Zelensky discussed the issue and commented on an interview with European public broadcasters suggesting that Ukraine will win the war by 2024, thus mitigating the impact of the upcoming U. S. election.

Uwielbia latać na paralotni, czuć wiatr we włosach i patrzeć na świat z dystansu. Fascynuje ją historia Wielkiej Brytanii sięgająca czasów Stonehenge i Ring of Brodgar. W każdej wolnej chwili eksploruje zakątki tego kraju, który nieustannie ją fascynuje. A fascynacją tą ‘zaraża’ też kolegów i koleżanki w redakcji:) Pochodzi z Wrocławia i często tam wraca, jednak prawdziwy dom znalazła na Wyspach i nie wyobraża sobie wyjazdu z tego kraju, dlatego szczególnie bliskie są jej historie imigrantów, Polaków, którzy także w tym kraju znaleźli swój azyl.
