Former President Donald Trump called into “Varney & Co.” on the Fox Business Network to discuss the Russia / Ukraine conflict on Tuesday.
During the call, host Stuart Varney continuously pressed Trump to say the “n-word.”
Trump avoided using the n-word until around the 6-minute mark of the video when he discussed Russian President Vladimir Putin threatening Ukraine and the United States.
“I hated to do it, but I rebuilt our nuclear capabilities,” Trump said. “Now we have brand new stuff that’s immensely powerful. And hope to God you never have to use it because that would be the tragedy of all tragedies.”
He continued: “But I listen to [Putin] constantly using the n-word, that’s the n-word, and he’s constantly using it, the nuclear word … And they say ‘Oh, he’s a nuclear power. But we’re a greater nuclear power. “
Speaking directly to the Biden administration, Trump said, “You should say ‘Look, if you mention that word one more time, we’re going to send [nukes] over and we’ll be coasting back and forth up and down your coast. ‘ You can’t let this tragedy continue. You can’t let thousands of people die. “
The former president said he had a good relationship with Putin, but the Russian president is a “different” man now. Trump suggested Putin may have a mental issue.
Trump was adamant that Russia would not have invaded Ukraine if he was still in office.
“Someday you and I will sit down and I’ll tell you why,” Trump told Varney before the video ended abruptly.
