Trump: Taking back Crimea would trigger World War III
World War III would break out if the United States were to intervene and take back Crimea from Russia on behalf of Ukraine, Donald Trump declared Monday, in his latest statement explaining his assessment of the geopolitical situation.
Trump mocked media coverage of his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that suggested he did not know that Russia had already invaded Crimea, which was a part of Ukraine, in 2014 and subsequently annexed it.
'I know it exactly. Two years ago, approximately. OK? Approximately. It was taken during Obama’s watch,' Trump told a crowd in Columbus, Ohio.
As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Arseniy Yatsenyuk describes Donald Trump's statement on Crimea as 'a breach of moral and civilized principles.'
