Trump also discussed real political moves, such as abandoning the concept of prohibiting abortion at the federal level, lowering taxes on tip money to secure the votes of service workers, and backing tariffs to safeguard the US steel sector.

Don Bacon, a spokesman for the far-right side of Republicans, also stated Trump criticised Ukraine's US$60 billion aid package, which received bipartisan approval.

Trump has often boasted that if elected, he could negotiate a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine within 24 hours. However, he has repeatedly refused to publicly specify how he would do so.

There have been reports in the media that Trump supposedly seeks to push Ukraine to make concessions to Russia and transfer Ukrainian territories, in particular Crimea and Donbas, under its control.
