According to the ex-president, the Joe Biden administration conducted stupid rhetoric with the Kremlin, which contributed to Putin's decision attack Ukraine.
Former President Donald Trump, during an interview with Real America's Voice, accused the current US authorities of practically forcing Russian President Vladimir Putin to launch a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The words of the American politician were quoted in the Newsweek news outlet.
Trump's statement was made against the backdrop of the latest setbacks of the Russian army in Ukraine, where it is forced to go on the defensive. The ex-president criticized the Joe Biden administration for the fact that the White House, according to Trump, conducted months of rhetoric that contributed to Putin's decision to attack Ukraine.
“They actually taunted him, if you really look at it. Our country and our so-called leadership taunted Putin. You know, they almost force him to go to war because of what they say. The rhetoric was downright stupid.” Trump comments.
The former president did not miss the opportunity to note that if he had remained the head of the White House, then there would never have been a war in Ukraine, since he was on good terms with both Putin and President Vladimir Zelensky . However, observers, in turn, noted that Trump did not give a single concrete example of how the United States “incited” Putin to invade Ukraine.
“And now we have a conflict between Russia and Ukraine … Immediate negotiations are needed on peaceful end of the war, or we will come to a third world war,” Trump said.
In early August, Donald Trump said that if Ukraine recognized the occupied Crimea as part of the Russian Federation and refused to join NATO, then a full-scale war could have been avoided.
