Trump says he's glad that Putin prefers Biden to win the 2024 election

Former President Donald Trump said it was a "compliment" for Russian President Vladimir Putin to say he would prefer his rival, President Joe Biden, to win in November.

Speaking with supporters at a campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, Wednesday evening, Trump said he would accomplish "amazing" things if he wins his reelection bid, including bringing the war between Russia and Ukraine to an end "very quickly."

"President Putin of Russia has just given me a great compliment, actually," Trump continued. "He's just said that he would much rather have Joe Biden as president than Trump. Now, that's a compliment. A lot of people said, 'Oh, gee, that's too bad.' No, no, that's a good thing."
