Trump claims he could solve Ukraine war in ‘24 hours’ and would build ‘impenetrable dome’ over US
Donald Trump says he will build an “impenetrable dome” to protect the US from nuclear missile attacks, as he also said he could end the Russian invasion of Ukraine “within 24 hours.”
The single-term president released a video saying that foreign powers are now openly “using the nuclear word all the time” because “they don’t respect our leadership.”
And Mr. Trump added that “that word you are never allowed to use” and insisted that it was never spoken when he was in the White House.
And the former president spoke to his followers in a Friday video about the grave consequences of any future global conflict.
“A third world war would be a catastrophe unlike any other. That would make World War I and World War II very small battles,” he added.
“The best way to ensure that such a conflict never happens is to prepare with unrivaled technology and unrivaled strength.
“To this end, when I become commander-in-chief…to build a state-of-the-art next-generation missile defense shield, just as Israel is now protected by the Iron Dome, a dream once thought impossible, America must have an impenetrable dome to protect our people.”
The Iron Dome is a mobile air defense system that Israel uses to detect incoming missiles and launch countermeasures to intercept and destroy the missiles before they hit their target.
Trump has already announced that he will run for the Republican nomination again in 2024.
The video comes a day after Mr. Trump took to Truth Social to suggest he has the ability to stop Vladimir Putin’s almost year-long unprovoked attack on Ukraine.
“If I were president, there would never be a war between Russia and Ukraine, but even now, if I were president, I could negotiate an end to this terrible and rapidly escalating war within 24 hours. Such a tragic waste of human life!!!”
