Trump says he can end war in 24 hours; Zelenskyy says Biden could in 5 minutes: Ukraine live updates

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Sunday dismissed claims by Donald Trump that he could end the war in 24 hours, saying the current GOP presidential front-runner failed to do so while president.

Zelenskyy, speaking through a translator on ABC’s “This Week,” noted that Ukraine has been battling Russian proxies in the Donbas region since Russia seized Crimea in 2014. Trump served as president from 2016 to 2020.

“The sole desire to bring the war to an end is beautiful, but this desire should be based on some real-life experience,” Zelenskyy said. “Donald Trump had already these 24 hours once in his time. We were at war, not a full-scale war. … (Trump) had that time at his disposal, but he must have had some other priorities.”
