He spoke just hours after the Palestinian militant group broke through the Gaza–Israel barrier.
The 77 year old said the ‘unprecedented’ attack wouldn’t have happened if he was in power, adding it was ‘an act of savagery that must and will be crushed'.
"We are closer to World War 3 than we've ever been," Trump told his attendees, as per the outlet.
"And I'm the only one that will prevent World War 3."
The Republican continued that Russia wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine if he were in office.
He added that he would’ve stopped both wars with advancements in weaponry.
"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."
Recently, the former leader of the free world also hit out at President Joe Biden, claiming he would lead the nation into another war, adding that he was 'cognitively impaired'.
While appearing at the Pray, Vote, Stand Summit in the nation's capital, he proceeded to call Mr Biden the ‘worst and most corrupt president’ in history, as per ABC News.
But the awkward moment came when Trump confused World War 3 for World War 2.
"He's [Biden] now in charge with dealing with Russia and possible nuclear war … just think of it, we would be in World War 2,” he said.
Oh, the irony.
In the same speech, the former president also confused Hillary Clinton for 44th President Barack Obama.
"The radical left thugs have weaponised law enforcement to arrest their leading political opponent … leading by a lot … including Obama," he said, forgetting it was Clinton he defeated in the 2016 presidential election.
"I'll tell you what … you take a look at Obama and you look at some of the things that he's done, this is the same thing, the country was very divided and we did with Obama, we won an election they said that couldn't be won."
Yikes. A blunder like that definitely points to being somewhat cognitively impaired.
