Former President Donald Trump’s description of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s talks raised eyebrows.
Trump told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney of talks with Putin that “I listen to him constantly using the n-word. That’s the n-word.”
While many viewers would undoubtedly think of “the n-word” as the racially charged slur, Trump clarified, saying, “and he’s constantly using it, the nuclear word.”
Trump’s comments were made during an interview for Fox Business.

“We say, ‘Oh, he’s a nuclear power,’ but we’re a greater nuclear power,” Trump continued. “We have the greatest submarines in the world, the most powerful machines ever built and they got built under me. The most powerful machines ever built and nobody knows where they are.”
Trump said then what Biden should do to address the issue.
“He should say, ‘If you mention that word one more time, we’re gonna send over and we’ll be coasting back and forth, up and down your coast,” Trump said.
According to the 45th President, Russia wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine even if he was still President.

“I knew that he always wanted Ukraine,” Trump said in his interview. “I used to talk to him about it.”
On Russia invading Ukraine, Trump said he told Putin, “I said, ‘You can’t do it. You’re not gonna do it.”
