Zelensky reups invitation for Trump to visit Ukraine: 'If he will come, I am ready'

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky again invited former President Trump to come to Ukraine, while speaking at the Munich Security Conference Saturday.

“[I]f Trump, Mr. Trump, if he will come, I am ready, even, to go with him to the frontline,” Zelensky said.

Zelensky invited Trump to Ukraine’s war zone back in November, saying that Trump “can’t manage this war.”

“Former President Trump said that about 24 hours, that he can manage it and finish the war,” Zelensky said during an interview at the time. “For me, what can I say? So he’s very welcome as well.”

“President Biden was here, and I think he understood some details which you can understand only being here,” Zelensky continued. “So I invite President Trump. If he can come here, I will need 24 minutes.”

Senate Republicans blocked a recent bipartisan deal on Ukraine aid and border security last week — a border deal against which Trump was firmly opposed, calling it a “death wish” for his party.

“Only a fool, or a Radical Left Democrat, would vote for this horrendous Border Bill, which only gives Shutdown Authority after 5000 Encounters a day, when we already have the right to CLOSE THE BORDER NOW, which must be done,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“This Bill is a great gift to the Democrats, and a Death Wish for The Republican Party. It takes the HORRIBLE JOB the Democrats have done on Immigration and the Border, absolves them, and puts it all squarely on the shoulders of Republicans,” Trump continued.
