RUSI Conservative Party Conference Fringe Event


Mr Trump has triggered fears he could slash help for the Ukraine administration if he wins next year’s presidential race. He has claimed he could end the war in 24 hours - without saying how - and refused to say whether he wanted Ukraine to prevail. He also moaned about the cost of vital gear sent to Ukraine. "We don't have ammunition for ourselves, we're giving away so much," complained Mr Trump. Mr Shapps told a Royal United Services Institute fringe meeting at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester: “I don’t think it’s entirely clear what would happen if indeed Trump won the nomination, if indeed he won the elections.”
