US must drive down oil price to stop Ukraine war - Trump

Former United States President Donald Trump at a mass gathering in Casper, Wyoming on Sunday said that if the US wants to stop Russian aggression in Ukraine, it must drive down the currently escalating oil prices that fuel Moscow's military operations.

"You want to stop the war? Drive down the price of oil, drive down the price of energy (...) To fight a war you need three things: money, money and money. And Russia is making a fortune with what oil is selling for," he exclaimed.

Trump also specified that lowering the oil price to "30 or 40 dollars a barrel" would be the surest way to deprive Moscow of its military funding.
