Former President Donald Trump told the crowd at the Florida Republican Party’s Freedom Summit on Saturday that he is the only candidate who will prevent World War III.
Many of Trump’s opponents, in both parties, have appeared anxious to involve the US in another war in the Middle East.
During his speech, Trump said that “millions of people” would still be alive if the 2020 election “wasn’t rigged.”
“And when you think of it, how important elections are, you’s have millions of people alive right now,” Trump asserted. “If the election wasn’t rigged, they’d be alive. Ukraine, Israel, The attack would have never been made. All these people would be alive.”
“I make you this promise as your president and nobody else can say it: I will restore peace through strength,” Trump said. “And yes, I am the only one that will prevent World War 3 — because we are very close to World War 3.”

Trump has consistently warned about how close we are getting to World War III.
While speaking in Iowa in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last month, the former president said, “We are closer to World War III than we’ve ever been.”
He also added during that event that he is “the only one that will prevent World War III.”
“That won’t be a war with army tanks going back and forth, too,” Trump said. “That will be a war with weaponry the likes of which this world has never seen before … I know it. I know it better than anybody.”
According to a new CBS News poll, most Americans think Trump will be better at keeping the US out of war than Biden.
The Hill reports:
When it comes to whether the U.S. will be kept out of war in the near future, voters instilled more confidence in Trump than Biden in keeping the country out of wars. Forty-three percent of voters said that the chances that the U.S. would get involved in a war would decrease if Trump won next year’s election, while 39 percent said the chances would increase under Trump.
If Biden clinches the presidency in 2024, 49 percent of voters said the chances of the U.S. being in a war would increase, and another 23 percent said the chances would decrease under Biden’s leadership. Twenty-three percent said it would not change if he were reelected.
