Former US president Donald Trump has warned of the danger of escalation and nuclear weapons. Trump called for an immediate and “peaceful end” to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
The war started following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February.
Trump was addressing a “Save America” rally in the US state of Nevada on Saturday. He warned of the dangers of nuclear weapons.” Nothing would be left of our earth all because ignorant people didn’t have a clue”, he said.
“There won’t be anything left of our planet if we don’t urge the quick negotiation of a peaceful conclusion to the war in Ukraine,” Donald Trump continued.
Earlier US President Joe Biden warned of the risk of a nuclear “Armageddon” for the first time in 60 years. This was followed by Trump’s remarks.
About the nuclear standoff that occurred sixty years ago as a result of the Soviet Union stationing missiles in Cuba within striking distance of the US, Joe Biden had said, “For the first time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat from the use of nuclear weapons if things continue down the path they are going.”
The world has “not faced the danger of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis,” according to Joe Biden.
The White House later stated in response to Biden’s terrifying statement that the president’s warning was not based on any new information suggesting that such nuclear use is near.
