The Trump-Russian collusion hoax has long been put to bed since being discredited.
Still, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appears to think pushing anti-Russian and anti-Trump sentiment amid the current war in Ukraine will help her into the White House in 2024.
During a talk at Georgetown University on Thursday, Clinton pushed the notion that Russian leader Vladimir Putin was waiting for Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020 to implement his evil plan to invade Ukraine.
“He got his dreams fulfilled when Trump was elected,” Hillary said.
“He, you know, decided that he didn’t want to face me as president,” she added.
“So he did all the things we now know he did that are well cataloged.”
Hillary’s alternate reality
Hillary also had some new anti-Trump material to force on the masses.
“And I believe that if Trump had been reelected, Putin would have waited for Trump to do what he said he was intending to do, which was to pull us out of NATO,” Clinton said.
“And that would have created such a vacuum that invading Ukraine, which he thought was going to be easy anyway, would be a fait accomplice,” she added.
Putin knew that Trump would pull the U.S. out of NATO, giving him a free hand to invade Ukraine.
But Joe Biden became President, and that still didn’t deter Putin from invading Ukraine – so what exactly does Hillary mean?
Perhaps she means that if she became President instead of Trump, Putin would not have invaded Ukraine because he was too scared of her? Who knows.
Anti-Trump sentiment vs Facts
Facts are facts; during the Obama administration, Putin moved against Ukraine and seized Crimea.
However, Putin did not move against Ukraine when Trump was in power. When Joe Biden became President, Putin launched an all-out invasion of Ukraine. But Hillary Clinton wants us to believe the invasion would have been even worse if Trump won the 2020 election.
Trump gave Putin an ultimatum on Feb. 22:
“If you move against Ukraine while I’m president, I will hit Moscow.”
To this, Putin responded, “No way,” after that, Trump responded, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”
Although Trump’s claim was met with skepticism, it should be noted that Putin could not be sure if Trump would do precisely what he said – a refreshingly common trait of the former President became known for.
“The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a terrible atrocity that should never have been allowed to happen or would have never happened.”
“I know I speak for everyone here tonight when I say we are praying for the proud people of Ukraine. They are going through hell. Make no mistake, however, that Russia would not have dared to annex one inch of territory if I was in the White House. In fact, they never did it when I was there,” Trump said.
But forget the facts, Hillary Clinton’s anti-Trump alternate reality suggests the former president was preparing to present Ukraine to Putin in a lovely gift-wrapped package, and leftists believed her.
