Former U.S. President Donald Trump isn't happy about Russian leader Vladimir Putin talking about nuclear weapons.

Trump hinted that he would threaten to nuke Putin if the Russian President mentioned nuclear weapons, reported Daily Mail. During an interview on “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” Trump said that Putin uses the nuclear word all the time, and that’s a "no-no, you’re not supposed to do that." He noted that Putin uses the word on a daily basis, and so "everybody’s so afraid."

Morgan asked Trump what he would tell Putin if he was still commander in chief. The former President who previously said he’d gotten along with Putin when he was in the White House, shared that he would say, the US has far more (nuclear weapons) than what Russia has.

"You can’t use the nuclear word ever again. And if you do, we’re gonna have problems.” He claimed that he warned Putin in “very strong language” not to invade Ukraine, and threatened a US response if Russia did. Trump said that he told Putin what America's response was going to be, and "his response was ‘Really?’ I said, ‘Really.'"

In the interview, Trump agreed with Morgan’s assertion that Putin is “now an evil, genocidal monster” following Ukraine invasion. The former President said that what’s happening in Ukraine is "horrible," and that "when you see rockets going into apartment buildings, and there are plenty of people in those buildings, they think they’re, like the people moved out, they didn’t move. They wanted to stay because they think they’re safe in their apartments.”

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the 75-year-old gave a cryptic response to whether he would contest the U.S. Presidential election in 2024. He said that “people are going to be very happy,” but added “others would be unhappy”. He also talked about the 2020 American Presidential election where he lost out to Joe Biden.

He called Morgan a "fool" for believing the 2020 U.S. Presidential election was "free and fair." In fact, he blamed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on the “rigged” election. He asked, "Isn’t it a shame all those people are dead all because of a rigged election?”
