Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, slammed Joe Biden for the situation in Ukraine in a recent press release, adding the current state of America is a “mess.” Trump criticized Biden for not handling the conflict in Eastern Europe “properly,” and moving the United States away from energy independence. There is speculation that Vladimir Putin is planning a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, as the capital city Kyiv declares a national “state of emergency.”
Trump is directing blame to Joe Biden for the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Vladimir Putin recently sent “peace-keeping” forces into the East part of Ukraine, with US intelligence predicting Putin is planning a full-scale invasion. Trump believes the situation in Ukraine would not have happened if he was still in office, writing:
“If properly handled, there was absolutely no reason that the situation currently happening in Ukraine should have happened at all. I know Vladimir Putin very well, and he would have never done during the Trump Administration what he is doing now, no way!
Russia has become very very rich during the Biden Administration, with oil prices doubling and soon to be tripling and quadrupling. The weak sanctions are insignificant relative to taking over a country and a massive piece of strategically located land. Now it has begun, oil prices are going higher and higher, and Putin is not only getting what he always wanted, but getting, because of the oil and gas surge, richer and richer.
The U.S. was energy independent under the Trump Administration, an independence that we had never obtained before, and oil prices would have remained low. Now, what a mess our Country is in!”
On the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show, Trump regarded Putin’s latest moves as “genius.” Trump stated that declaring parts of Ukraine independent and sending in “peace-keeping” forces in to Ukraine was “smart.” Naturally, the writers at CNN took issue with his comments and disputed Putin’s claims of peace-keeping, instead stating he is violating international law with his military. The Vanity Fair took it a step farther, and called Trump a “sick man that hates democracy” in a column published Tuesday.
