Former president Donald Trump said Joe Biden’s “weakness and incompetence” has “brought us to the brink of nuclear war” in Russia and Ukraine.
Trump called for the end of “this ridiculous war” in Ukraine, noting that it “would have never happened” if he were in the White House, adding it “would be very easy to do.”
“The situation in Ukraine is very dangerous, explosive and escalating by the day,” Trump began.
“Joe Biden’s weakness and incompetence has brought us to the brink of nuclear war,” the former president added.
“And now Biden is doing what he said 10 months ago would lead to World War Three”
“He is sending in American tanks”
“It’s far past the time for all parties involved to pursue a peaceful end to the war in Ukraine before this already horrific catastrophe spirals out of control and ends up leading indeed to World War Three,” Trump added.
“And this would be a war like no other war, because this would be a nuclear war.”
“As I have said many times before, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would have never happened if I was in the White House.”
“Not even thinkable, not even a possibility.”
“We must end this ridiculous war and demand peace in Ukraine now, before it gets worse.”
“And believe it or not, it would be easy to do.”
“It would be very easy to do.”
“If I were President, the Russia-Ukraine war would never have happened … never in a million years.”
“But even now, if I were President, I’d be able to negotiate an end to this horrible and rapidly escalating war within 24 hours.”
“It can be done. You have to say the right things, not the wrong things.”
“I think we helped lead Russia into that war by saying, well, if they took a small part of the country that would be okay.”
“Such a tragic waste of human life, when you look at all that’s happening there. Those cities are obliterated.”
“First come the tanks, and then come the nukes. Get this crazy war ended now. It can be done.”
“In fact, it’s easy to get done. When I’m President, we will be a strong country again.”
“People will never be playing these games, like they’ve been doing to the United States of America.”
“They don’t respect us anymore. They respected us greatly two-and-a-half years ago. They don’t respect us anymore.”
