Flashback: President Trump Told Putin He’d Bomb Moscow if Russia Invaded Ukraine
President Trump revisited conversations he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week at his Mar-a-lago home.
Trump allegedly told Putin he would bomb Moscow if Russia invaded Ukraine.
President Trump: “All of those beautiful turrets will be blown up.”
Michael Goodwin at The New York Postreported:
There are other stories making the rounds, too, and they are even more provocative. One has it that Trump — noting that Putin seized land from Georgia when George W. Bush was president and seized the Crimean peninsula when Barack Obama was president — warned Putin against a land grab on his watch.
“If you move against Ukraine while I’m president,” Trump is said to have told the Russian leader, “I will hit Moscow.”
