Zelensky Says Trump Wanting to Stop the War is “Dangerous”

So, Zelensky is out stumping against Trump.

That was about the most predictable thing.

The Guardian:

The Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, fears that if Donald Trump returns to the White House next year he could make unilateral concessions to Russia that override Ukraine’s interests and branded the former US president’s claims he could stop the war in 24 hours as “very dangerous”.

In an interview with the UK’s Channel 4 News, Zelenskiy said he was “stressed” that the former president “is going to make decisions on his own, without … I’m not even talking about Russia, but without both sides, without us.”

“If he says this publicly, that’s a little scary. I’ve seen a lot, a lot of victims, but that’s really making me a bit stressed,” he said.

Even if his idea [for ending the war] – that no one has heard yet – doesn’t work for us, for our people, he will do anything to implement his idea anyway. And this worries me a little,” he added.

He’s afraid that Trump would do something that would result in people not dying.

Zelenskiy said he’d invite Trump to Ukraine – an offer he has previously declined to extend – but only if the former president comes through on his promise to stop the war.

“Donald Trump, I invite you to Ukraine, to Kyiv. If you can stop the war during 24 hours, I think it will be enough to come,” Zelenskiy said.


The Ukrainian leader’s comments come after the Republican presidential frontrunner has claimed he is well positioned to negotiate an end to the war that has raged without any attempt at a negotiated settlement between the two countries for almost two years.

In September, Trump said that if re-elected president, he would resolve the war within 24 hours but declined to outline his peace plan. “If I tell you exactly, I lose all my bargaining chips. I mean, you can’t really say exactly what you’re going to do. But I would say certain things to Putin. I would say certain things to Zelenskiy,” he said.

All you would have to do is cut the Ukraine’s money.

They would go themselves to the negotiating table within 24 hours of hearing that news.

What else are they going to do?

If they didn’t negotiate when the money was cut, their state would collapse within 24 hours.

It’s not a complicated proposal.
