Russian State TV: Trump "the destroyer of America"

Russian state media called out former President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying that he is looked at as "the destroyer of America" amid discussions of the 2024 presidential election. While speaking with Russian presenter Vladimir Solovyov about Trump, the pundits played a soundbite of the former president's interview with Fox host Sean Hannity. Trump can be heard saying, "Ukraine is being obliterated." The clip of the broadcast was shared on Twitter by Julia Davis, founder of the Russian Media Monitor watchdog group. Soloyov responds, "And it will be destroyed. Who needs it? Who needs Ukraine where they don't respect Russians?" Andrey Sidorov, deputy dean of world politics at Moscow State University, then responds, "Trump is coming. Think of him as you will, I always saw him and still see him as a destroyer of America." Soloyov then pivoted to discussing elections in the U.S., saying the 2020 election was stolen from Trump, and if Democrats manage to "pin him down," the 2024 election would end in a victory for President Joe Biden.Meanwhile, Trump is battling multiple legal issues, most notably a possible indictment from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Bragg is investigating Trump for his alleged $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign. Trump allegedly arranged for his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to pay Daniels. The former president has denied all allegations, including Daniels' claim that they had an affair. Source
