PALM BEACH — Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and former US President Donald Trump met on Thursday in the United States and discussed the situation in Ukraine, conflict regarding which both ex-presidents differ.
As confirmed this Friday by Johnson’s spokesman, the former ‘premier’, on a visit to the United States, took advantage of the day before to meet with Trump and reiterate the “vital importance” of Ukraine defeating Russia, reports the British BBC radio and television.
Trump and Johnson, who on previous occasions have acknowledged being close friends, hold almost antagonistic views on the war in Ukraine. While the British has become one of the international leaders who has most expressed his support for kyiv, the American has shown himself to be more equidistant.
In fact, former President Trump this week refused to take a position on the war and has refused to show his support for the Ukrainian victory under the excuse of “not thinking in terms of winning or losing,” according to Sky News.
“I want everyone to stop dying. Russians and Ukrainians are dying. I want them to stop dying,” Trump said during an interview with CNN, where he also ruled out continuing arms aid to Kiev if he finally wins the US presidential election in 2024.
