President Donald Trump warned that the Biden administration’s promise to send cluster bombs to Ukraine is dragging the US further into World War Three.
“Joe Biden should not be dragging us further toward World War III by sending cluster munitions to Ukraine,” Trump said in a statement.
“He should be trying to END the war and stop the horrific death and destruction being caused by an incompetent administration,” Trump added.
“These unexploded cluster munitions will be killing and maiming innocent Ukrainian men, women, and children for decades to come, long after the war—we pray—has ended,” Trump said.
The recent decision to send cluster bombs to Ukraine starkly contrasts what the Biden administration said in February 2022, stating Russia’s use of cluster bombs was a “war crime.”
Now the Biden administration is sending bombs to Ukraine.
When Biden was asked about the decision, he said it was because Ukraine was running out of ammunition.
The administration claimed that it wasn’t that bad since Russia was using them, and the “dud rate” of the US-made munitions was lower.
The “dud rate” means how many bomblets that are released by the cluster bombs do not explode on impact but essentially turn into land mines, which then kill unsuspecting civilians.
“If, as Biden inadvertently admitted,” Trump continued.
“The reason for sending cluster bombs now is that the United States is ‘running out of ammunition’ (a great breach of classified information), that only further emphasizes the urgency of immediately de-escalating this bloody, dangerous, and out of control conflict, it certainly means we should not be sending Ukraine our last stockpiles at a time when our own arsenals, according to Crooked Joe Biden, are so perilously diminished,” Trump said adding that Russia would not have invaded Ukraine if he were still president.
“There could be no more vivid proof that Joe Biden’s policy of endless war in Ukraine has tremendously weakened the United States than the humiliating admission that the USA is now out of ammo, something our enemies are undoubtedly salivating over,” Trump said.
“This ‘admitted’ weakness is an invitation to enemies all over the world. Joe Biden is needlessly and dangerously leading us into World War III, which would be a nightmare beyond imagination—obliteration!” he said.
“We must stop this insanity,” Trump said in conclusion.
“Immediately end the bloodshed in Ukraine, and return to a focus on America’s vital interests. Most importantly, we must completely rebuild our depleted military so it is once again so strong—like it was just 3 years ago when I rebuilt it—that no nation would even think of threatening our people. “
“We must have ‘PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH’, and in a short time, the Presidential election of 2024 will produce that result.”
National Security Council spokesman John Kirby defended Joe Biden’s approving cluster bombs for Ukraine, which Kremlin says is a confession to imminent “war crimes.”
Kirby told ABC that “we can all agree that more civilians have been and will continue to be killed by Russian forces… than will likely be hurt by the use of these cluster munitions.”
