Trump boasts that he threatened his “friend” Vladimir Putin with claims that the US was bombing Moscow
Donald Trump has claimed Russia did not invade Ukraine during his tenure because he threatened to bomb Moscow.
Speaking to golf pro John Daly on Friday, the former Republican president, 75, said he “got on great” with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
“They all say oh he’s a nuclear power, it’s like they’re scared of him,” Trump said in a recording of the phone conversation with Daly. “You know, he was a friend of mine, I got on really well with him. I say, Vladimir, if you do it, we’ll hit Moscow. We will meet Moscow. And he kind of believed me, like 5 percent, 10 percent — that’s all you need.”
“During my time, he never did, John, you know. They were all going like, ‘Why hasn’t he done this in the last four years?’ Because he knew he couldn’t.”
Trump also claimed that Xi Jinping, the President of China, did not mess with him either.
“Xi didn’t bother me either. I told him the same thing, that’s what’s next. You know that’s next. Taiwan will be next,” he said.
