Former president Donald Trump warned of “World War III” as tensions around the world continue to escalate.
“WORLD WAR lll,” Trump blasted out on Truth Social.
The news comes amid news that French President Emmanuel Macron appeared to advocate a distancing of Europe from the U.S. in their continuing war between Russia and Ukraine and the crisis between China and Taiwan.
Internet Entrepreneur Kim Dotcom reacted to Macron’s remarks saying it was a precursor to a “nuclear war.”
“Now what? Europe says enough with Ukraine and sides with China on peace?” Kim Dotcom wrote.
“Europe leaves the abusive relationship and the U.S. Govt turns into a bitter ex and lashes out? BRICS+ and Europe partner, watch the U.S. become a failed state while it is blaming everyone else for its fall?
“The likely outcome is nuclear war because the failing empire, in its infinite arrogance, won’t accept the consequences of having bullied and corrupted the world which then turned against it. The corrupt elites who destroyed America will feel safer inside of nuclear bunkers.”
Over the weekend, Beijing simulated precision air strikes around Taiwan which involved an aircraft carrier.
At least 45 aircraft, including drones, surveillance planes, and fighter jets, violated the country’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ).
It was also reported that NATO would stage its largest-ever aerial war exercises later this year.
Ten thousand soldiers and 220 aircraft from different nations will participate in the drill scheduled for June 12 and June 24.
Meanwhile, terrorism and national security researcher and analyst Kyle Orton accused Macron of having “really outdone himself with this grovelling to China.”
Last month, Trump said he could solve the Russia-Ukraine war within 24 hours if he were president.
“I will prevent World War III, which we’re heading into,” Trump said.
“If it’s not solved, I will have it solved in 24 hours with Zelensky and with Putin,” he added.
