Trump warns US ‘heading into WWIII,’ says he’s the only one who can stop it

As Donald Trump greeted supporters during his first campaign rally of the 2024 cycle on Saturday, the former president made a hefty campaign promise: to singlehandedly prevent the United States from entering World War III.

Trump offered warnings to attendees that the U.S. is “heading into World War III,” positioning himself as the “only candidate” to prevent such a global conflict from happening.

TRUMP SLAMS LOOMING CHARGES AT FIRST RALLY SINCE INDICTMENT NEWS

“This will be a war like no other,” Trump said. “As president, I will end the inflation nightmare and rebuild the greatest economy in the history of the world just like we had it before.”

Trump touted his foreign policy accomplishments while in office, arguing that the ongoing war in Ukraine would not have happened if he were still president — vowing to end the conflict if elected. He pointed to the working relationship he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his White House term, arguing an invasion was never something that was discussed.

“It’s something he … never even talked about for four years. You didn’t even hear about it,” Trump said. “And it’s no coincidence that the deep state is coming after me even harder, since I pledged to swiftly end the war in Ukraine.”

The campaign event comes as Trump faces a possible indictment as soon as next week. If pressed with charges, it would mark the first time a former president has been indicted in U.S. history. It’s not yet clear what charges Trump may face, but reports of a possible indictment emerged earlier this month after his former attorney Michael Cohen testified before the Manhattan grand jury.

Cohen was convicted in 2018 after pleading guilty to paying two women who accused Trump of sexual affairs to be silent, including Daniels. As part of the scheme, Cohen paid Stormy Daniels, one of the two women, $130,000 and was later reimbursed by the Trump Organization.

Manhattan prosecutors later opened an investigation into whether Trump falsified business records to list the reimbursement as a legal expense. Such a crime is a misdemeanor in New York but could be increased to a felony if Bragg’s office argues the fraud was intended to conceal a second crime.
