Former US President Donald Trump has said that the current White House administration, led by US President Joe Biden, is to blame for the situation in Ukraine. He also accused them of high inflation and rising gasoline prices. According to Trump, Joe Biden “killed the American dream.”
According to the former US leader, if you take the five worst American presidents in history, it turns out that they have never caused such harm to the country as Joe Biden in 15 months of rule. “He killed the American dream in a year,” Donald Trump said in a speech at a rally in Commerce, Georgia.
The politician added that if he had been in the White House, the invasion of Ukraine would never have taken place, the situation around this country would not have developed dramatically in the current dramatic way, and Trump called Joe Biden “sleepy son of a bitch.”
“Democrats are bad in the economy, terrible in terms of inflation, bad in the context of Ukraine, this should never have happened,” said the former president.
He drew parallels between the situation around Ukraine and the US failures in withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. Trump suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin was looking at all this and thinking of American politicians that “all these people are incompetent.”
He further noted that the problems with the United States are also observed in relations with NATO: they do not trust the American mission. And Chinese President Xi Jinping will draw conclusions from what is happening, assessing the “weak leadership of the United States”, and will invade Taiwan.
In addition, the former president will remind Joe Biden of record inflation and gasoline prices.
Earlier, in an interview with Washington Examiner, Donald Trump admitted that Russia’s military special operation in Ukraine came as a surprise to him. He believed that the concentration of Russian troops on the Ukrainian border was necessary for negotiations. Russia’s decision to launch a special military operation in Ukraine was called a sad event for the whole world. The ex-president also noted that during his tenure as head of state, he was “very tough” in his relations with Putin, but at the same time got along well with him.
On February 24, Russia launched a demilitarization and denazification operation in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address that the people’s republics of Donbass had asked Russia for help. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, strikes are carried out only on military infrastructure, but often Ukrainian military formations, including Nazi ones, specifically place firing points in houses, schools and other civilian infrastructure. Despite this, talks are being held between Russian delegates, led by Russian presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, and Ukraine, represented by Servant of the People member David Arahamiya and his colleagues, to agree on humanitarian corridors. The results of these meetings are often unsatisfactory.
