Former U.S. President Donald Trump compared the annual spending of the States on the operation in Afghanistan with the military budget of Russia.

“We spent $ 42 billion a year. Think about it, 42 billion. I understand that Russia spends 50 billion a year on the entire army, and we spend 42 billion,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News.

He stressed that this happened yearly and did not bring anything to the United States in return.
