This is great (emphasis mine):
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy shut down a Newsmax interviewer [Newsmax anchor Rob Schmitt] who prompted him to say that there would be no war in Ukraine if former President Donald Trump were still US president.
“There are many Americans that believe that if somebody like Donald Trump was still in the White House that this invasion would not have happened. What is your position?”
He said: “Well I believe what’s the most important is the assistance from the people of the United States. They are paying the taxes, and the money being allocated to support Ukraine comes from the taxes, and it’s all of that humanitarian, financial, military support to Ukraine. So I am grateful to the current president of the United States as well as to those in the political parties that support us.”
“I am sorry if I’ll be saying something that you don’t like but for us as the country in war, it doesn’t matter whether its Democrats or Republicans. It’s the people of the United States that support us,” he said.
And that is how it is done.
