Biden should stop stating the US would not attack Russia, says Donald Trump.
“At what point do countries say, ‘No, we can’t take this massive crime against humanity?’ We can’t let it happen. We can’t let it continue to happen,” Trump said calling NATO a ‘paper tiger’
In his remarks to top Republican National Committee donors, Former US President Donald Trump stated on Saturday that the US should fly the Chinese flag on F-22 fighter jets and “bomb the s*** out of Russia’. “And then we say, China did it. Then they start fighting with each other, and we sit back and watch,” he said in what came across as a joke as his audience laughed and clapped, as reported by US media.
Republican senators have been criticized for their “irresponsible” behavior and remarks in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, with some publishing images of a Zoom conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday.
Calling NATO a ‘paper tiger‘, Trump said, “At what point do countries say, ‘No, we can’t take this massive crime against humanity?’ We can’t let it happen. We can’t let it continue to happen.”
“We have to have Biden stop saying that — and this is for everyone to hear — that we will not attack Russia ever because they are a nuclear power, right?” Trump said, as reported by CBS News. “You know who is saying this? Okay, whether it’s fact or fiction, ‘We will not attack Russia. You see, they are a nuclear power.’ Oh, thanks for telling us,” Trump said.
Trump has been labeled a Putin apologist and has been condemned by Republicans after praising Putin in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Now, Trump has reversed his position and is blaming Biden for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, claiming that Putin would not have done what he is doing now if it were not for Trump.
On another occasion, Trump stated that he is the first president in the 21st century who has not seen Russia invade another country.
“Under Bush, Russia invaded Georgia. Under Obama, Russia took Crimea. Under Biden, Russia invaded Ukraine,” Trump had said.
Senator Rick Scott, a Republican, reportedly said in an interview that sending US troops to Ukraine should not be absolutely ruled out.
As per theguardian, the anti-Russia rhetoric in the US has evoked a sharp reaction from Russia and Russian envoy in US Anatoly Antonov said, “Anti-Russian rhetoric in the US has reached the point of absurdity. There is an impression that local politicians are not fully aware of their statements. The slogans voiced in Washington are becoming more and more irresponsible, provocative, and, most importantly, extremely risky for international security.”
