President Donald Trump continues to oppose America’s costly involvement in the war in Ukraine.
As of February, the Council on Foreign Relations reported that the U.S. had spent at least $75 billion in funding for the overseas conflict.
President Trump addressed the Ukraine-Russia war in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, as well as his approach to peace. On Tuesday, the MAGA War Room posted clips of the discussion on Twitter in which President Trump tore into the Biden administration’s handling of the war.
He noted, “Between inflation, the economy, the — what happened in Afghanistan, it started it because we looked so incompetent.”
President Trump once again asserted that Russian leader Vladimir Putin would never have started the war against Ukraine if Trump were still in office. Relations between the U.S. and Russia were more stable during Trump’s first term per Time Magazine, but due to the now-debunked Russian collusion hoax, they were also intensely scrutinized, via the New York Post.
Despite this, President Trump continues his push for peace. The Post Millennial reported that Trump was the first president in 40 years to avoid starting any new wars, and true to that legacy he has continuously advocated for a peaceful end to the current Ukraine-Russia conflict.
In another clip from the interview, the 45th president decried the possibility of World War III and the repercussions of a nuclear war with Russia. President Trump also described plans to negotiate peace within 24 hours.
President Trump’s goal is clear. He simply stated, “The war has to stop now.”
