Trump Willing To Meet With Putin To Have Ukraine War “Settled in One Day”

To the surprise of many (and outrage on the left for “giving him a platform”), CNN hosted a town hall in New Hampshire on Wednesday featuring former president Donald Trump, and a key foreign policy focus in the discussion was the Russia-Ukraine war.

During the town hall he was pressed on whether he wants Ukraine to “win”. But instead of taking the bait, he instead focused on finding a peaceful outcome. “I don’t think in terms of winning and losing,” Trump said. I think in terms of getting it settled so we stop killing all these people.”

He again emphasised his long-running claim that if he were president, he could end the conflict in 24 hours. “Russians and Ukrainians, I want them to stop dying,” the presidential hopeful said. “And I’ll have that done in 24 hours.”

He had been pressed hard by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins if he wants “Ukraine to win this war.” While Trump also refused to say whether he views Putin as a “war criminal” when pressed on the matter, saying this “should be discussed later” – he did assert that “Putin made a mistake” in launching the special military operation.

Mainstream media is also making much out of Trump’s refusal to say whether he favours a particular side of the war. However, he clearly wants to be seen as a potential future neutral arbiter and mediator if presented an opportunity. A fresh Rolling Stone headline reads: “Trump Refuses to Pick a Side in Ukraine-Russia War.”
