In a recent interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” former President Donald Trump revealed his plan to swiftly bring an end to the ongoing war in Ukraine. Trump’s proposed strategy involves pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin by offering increased military support to Ukraine if a deal is not reached. Trump confidently declared, “I will have the deal done in one day.”

These statements made by Trump generated significant online reactions, with commentators from various backgrounds weighing in on the matter. Republican strategist Ryan James Girdusky pointed out the similarities between Trump’s approach and current President Joe Biden’s policies. Meanwhile, Claremont Institute fellow David Reaboi expressed surprise at Trump’s remarks, stating, “In order to end the war, Trump commits to following the Lindsay Graham and Neocon policy of arming Ukraine to the teeth.”

Critics raised concerns about the effectiveness of such an escalation, highlighting the lack of success in changing Putin’s behavior thus far. David Sacks, an influential Republican, responded to the interview, expressing disappointment with Trump’s stance. Others, like Republican strategist Matt Whitlock, questioned Trump’s absence from Tucker Carlson’s forum in Iowa, speculating on the host’s potential reaction to the former president’s comments.

Twitter was abuzz with discussions on the topic, and AG Hamilton, a popular conservative account, found Trump’s proposal amusing. Hamilton stated, “Hilarious. Trump is asked to explain how he would actually end the Ukraine war in one day. He says he would tell Zelensky to stop and then tell Putin we will arm Ukraine a lot more if he doesn’t agree??? No wonder he skipped the Tucker Iowa event.” The exchange on social media underscored the varying perspectives surrounding Trump’s approach to resolving the conflict in Ukraine.
