Trump breaks silence on Russia-Ukraine war – urges US to send nuclear submarines


The former US president also reminded the Russian leader that the US was the “greatest nuclear power in the world.” He made his remarks during an interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Monday. Mr Trump claimed that if he were President he would threaten Putin with the deployment of US nuclear subs and that he would tell the dictator “we’ll be coasting back and forth up and down your coast.”

The US boasts 68 operational submarines, 14 of which are armed with strategic nuclear-powered ballistic missiles.

Moscow possesses 11 submarines capable of firing nuclear missiles, according to information provided by the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

The Russian leader made a veiled threat to use his nuclear arsenal if Western countries intervened in the war in Ukraine.

In a TV address announcing his decision to invade Ukraine, he said the West would face “consequences greater than any you have faced in history” should they become involved in the war.

Later, he ordered his nuclear deterrent forces to be on alert as tensions rose over his military adventurism.

The 45th US President dismissed Putin’s nuclear posturing as just bluff.

He told his TV host that he recalled the Russian leader “constantly using the n-word” by which Trump meant nuclear.

Mr Trump met Putin for a summit in Helsinki in July 2018 and later held a joint press conference with the Russian strongman.

He stunned journalists and Western diplomats alike when he said he believed Putin’s assertions that Moscow did not interfere in the 2016 US Presidential elections.

In doing so, he disregarded the conclusions of the US Intelligence Community, which said Moscow had interfered in those elections.

Those conclusions were subsequently backed up by a bipartisan Senate report published in 2020.
