At the same time, he noted that Putin has 1,700 nuclear missiles, so it is very important to understand him.
Former US President Donald Trump “gets along very well” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This statement was made by Trump himself in an interview on the NBC channel, the Voice of America reports . “I got along with Putin, got along very well. And that’s good. Not bad. He has 1,700 nuclear missiles. That’s right, it’s good to get along – it’s normal,” said the former US president.
At the same time, during the interview, Trump was reminded of Russia’s bombing of maternity homes in Ukraine, the kidnapping of Ukrainian children, and the mass burials of Ukrainians killed by the Russians. “It’s terrible,” Trump expressed his attitude to this, but emphasized that he has a “very good relationship” with Putin.
“No one has been tougher on Russia than I am,” he believes.
In this interview, Trump repeated what he said on Fox News in July that “Putin loves Ukraine very much.” “It’s the apple of his eye,” Trump said, describing Putin’s obsession with Ukraine.
And the ex-president repeated again that he would have been able to prevent the war, because he could have gathered Putin and Zelensky in the same cabinet.
