"I am very much concerned for Ukraine, I am concerned about that region and what is going on there," Trump said.
"I believe that people from different corners of the world should help Ukraine. I do not think that Ukraine is getting the respect it deserves, and it has long been proving it deserves respect. Whether it is Germany or other countries, I don't think you are getting the support that you need," he said.
Trump, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination in the United States, was critical of American support of Ukraine, saying the current administration's support of the country has been "far more in words than in action." He added, "We call this gobbledygook. Part of the problem is that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has no respect for our president."
