Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he is unsure of whether former President Trump would support Ukraine if he is elected back to the White House next year.

“Really, I don’t know. Really, I don’t know,” he said when asked whether Trump would back Ukraine on “Meet the Press.” “I hope that it depends not only on the president institutionally. I think it depends on the opinion of Americans, of your society. I think that is most important. I think it’s important in the United States and EU, the attitude of just ordinary people. It’s their support. It’s their money. It depends on them.”

“And they are sure in Ukraine. I know that they support Ukraine, love us. And really, they understand our difficult war against Russia. And I think only after that, society is pushing the leaders and leaders make right decisions,” he added.

Zelensky also invited Trump to Ukraine when asked about the former president’s repeated claims that he could solve the war in 24 hours if he were president.

“Former President Trump said that about 24 hours, that he can manage it and finish the war,” Zelensky said during the interview. “For me, what can I say? So he’s very welcome as well.”

“President Biden was here, and I think he understood some details which you can understand only being here,” Zelensky continued. “So I invite President Trump. If he can come here, I will need 24 minutes.”

He said that he would just need 24 minutes to explain to the former president that “he can’t manage this war.”
