(DCWatchdog.com) – Former President Donald Trump claims the policies of his successor, Democrat Joe Biden, on the Russia – Ukraine war could cause a “Third World War.”
Trump’s comments came after Biden made a surprise visit on Monday to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, where he declared America’s support for the victim of Putin’s Russia to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. From there, Biden went to US ally Poland on a two-day visit.
His trip was ahead of the first anniversary since Moscow invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, as Russian leader Vladimir Putin seemingly sought to start rebuilding the defunct former Soviet empire.
His plans for a quick conquest of Ukraine, a nation the size of Texas and as populous as California, were frustrated by the fierce and efficient resistance of the Ukrainians, with US and other Western military aid vital for their survival.
“If you watch and understand the moves being made by Biden on Ukraine, he is systematically, but perhaps unknowingly, pushing us into what could soon be WORLD WAR III,” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social.
“How crazy is that?” he added.
During his visit to Kyiv, Biden pledged another $500 million in additional military aid for Ukraine, bringing the total to almost $30 billion.
The new US military aid package will include artillery ammunition, anti-tank missiles, and air surveillance radars to help Ukraine defend itself from Russia’s deadly bombing attacks, Newsmax reported.
The president did not mention the transfer of fighter jets to Ukraine even though such a move remains widely anticipated, and Britain has already started training Ukrainian pilots.
In Kyiv, Biden also vowed more war sanctions by the US government later this week, targeting more of Russia’s elite and companies trying to evade sanctions to “back the Russian war machine.”
Besides accusing Biden of escalating the war between Russia and Ukraine, on Truth Social, Trump also stated he would have negotiated an end to the war “within 24 hours” if he were still in the White House.
At the same time, in a video uploaded on Truth Social, Trump declared that on his watch, “the Russia-Ukraine war would never have happened … never in a million years.”
In another video on his page, the 45th president of the US, who is running for the White House for a third time, accused Biden of “escalating” the war with his recent decision to give Ukraine tanks to fend off the Russians.
“The situation in Ukraine is very dangerous, explosive, and escalating by the day,” he said.
“Joe Biden’s weakness and incompetence have brought us to the brink of nuclear war. And now Biden is doing what he said 10 months ago would lead to World War III. He is sending in American tanks,” Trump added.
