Trump claims Boris Johnson stopped interview
Trump confirms Boris Johnson asked him to pull out of a planned Good Morning Britain interview with Morgan days before the last general election.
“Well, that’s true,” Trump says. “I mean, we knew that I was over there as his guest.”
“I like him,” he adds. “I’ve always liked him.”
Trump says that he thinks the Prime Minister has become “too liberal” and “green”.
Trump claims he warned Germany about Russia
Trump claims he warned former German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Russia was going to be a “big problem”.
“I said you’re going to be someday in a problem with Russia. And you are going to have no choice but to surrender,” he said.
Trump refuses to rule out running in 2024
Trump refuses to rule out running for president again in 2024.
He says “for reasons of campaign finance” he is “not allowed” to state definitively whether he will stand to lead the US.
He adds: “But let me just say this. I think a lot of people are going to be very happy.”
Putin is ‘Monster’
Trump agrees when asked if he believes Putin is a ‘genocidal monster’.
“Isn’t it a shame all those people dead because of a rigged election,” he adds, repeating his false claim that the US election was rigged and Putin only invaded because Biden is president.
Trump suggests Putin saw the “incompetent” withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and it prompted the invasion of Ukraine.
“I know my people and I know that he would have never done it,
“I think the Afghanistan withdrawal was so incompetent with the 85 billion and the dead soldiers.”
Trump Denies Ever Praising Putin
Morgan asks Trump why he has been so “praiseworthy” of Putin in the past.
He had described Russia’s leader as a “genius” and “a peacemaker”.
Trump says that is “fake news”.
“I threatened him like he’s never been threatened before,” he tells Morgan.
“We have a war that would have never happened if I was president.”
What’s coming up…
Donald Trump will be discussing Vladimir Putin, the war in Ukraine, his handling of the Covid pandemic, how his successor President Joe Biden is doing and, of course, his thoughts on the “renegade royals” Harry and Meghan.
“No snowflake zone”
Morgan starts his show with a warning for “all the ultra sensitive, permanently offended snowflakes” that they are not going to have a good time.
“In fact, it’s going to really annoy you,” he says.
“It may even provoke trauma, because I’m going to be constantly celebrating the one thing you can’t stand: free speech.”
