Former US Republican President Donald Trump refused Wednesday to say whether he wants Ukraine or Russia to win the war.

“I don’t think in terms of winning and losing. I think in terms of settling the matter,” Trump said on CNN, in front of a live audience in New Hampshire.

“I want the death to stop. They are dying. The Russians and the Ukrainians. I want them not to die. And I will,” Trump, who opposes Republican politics supporting Kiev, added.

The former president continued, “I will do it in 24 hours. I will do it. You need the power of the presidency to do that.”

Trump stressed that he could stop the war that began in February last year by negotiating directly with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“I’m going to meet Putin. I’m going to meet Zelensky. They both have weaknesses and they both have strengths. In 24 hours, this war will be settled. And it will end,” he said.

Trump declined to say whether he believes Putin is a war criminal for alleged atrocities in Ukraine.

He declared, “If it is said that he is a war criminal, it will be very difficult to reach an agreement to stop this thing.”

“If he is classified as a war criminal, people will catch him and execute him, and he will fight with more force than he would under other circumstances. This is something that should be discussed later.”

Trump also said he believed “Putin made a mistake” by launching the war on Ukraine. “It was his mistake to enter (in Ukraine). He would not have gone there if I were president,” he said.
