Trump claims he could negotiate an end to war in Ukraine within 24 hours in new policy video and slams Biden for risking nuclear war by sending tanks
- Donald Trump on Wednesday released two new video statements on Ukraine
- He claimed he would be able to negotiate an end to the war 'within 24 hours'
- And he slammed other leaders for failing to send clear message to Russia
- Donald Trump appeared to criticize a decision by the US and Germany to provide tanks to Ukraine.
- "FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES," Trump said on his social media platform.
- Trump also suggested ending the war in Ukraine would be "easy,"
Trump has repeatedly condemned Biden's handling of the conflict, claiming his successor in the White House has undermined the nation's standing.
His latest salvo is a reminder of how Russia seized the Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 triggering U.S. sanctions under President Barack Obama — measures criticized as too weak by hawkish Republicans.
And his words also echo criticism of Biden before the war, when Russian troops were massing on the Ukrainian border, and the president said NATO was divided on what to do if Russia launched a 'minor incursion.'
Furious Ukrainian officials said Biden had effectively given Putin a 'green light.'
Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24 last year, making rapid advances before being beaten back by spirited resistance and an influx of foreign weapons.
In the early days, the White House warned repeatedly of the risk of 'World War Three' if US tanks were sent or warplanes patrolled no-fly zones.
Trump accused Biden of hypocrisy after last week announcing he was sending a battalion of M1 Abrams tanks.
'The situation in Ukraine is very dangerous, explosive and escalating by the day,' he said in a second video.
'Joe Biden's weakness and incompetence has brought us to the brink of nuclear war.
'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.
'And this would be a war like no other war because this would be a nuclear war.'
The videos are the latest in a string of policy declarations, as Trump looks to clear the field for the 2024 Republican nomination.
Bold words from Mr. Trump. I like where he's coming from. Lets put an end to it.
Many will criticize him for using words like "easy" to resolve the conflict. But if I'm being honest it doesn't look like any of the powerful countries in NATO are interested in any kind of negotiations or peace talks with Russia. Its pretty much a war funding spree that will ultimately not defeat Russia but drag out and extend the conflict as long as possible. If the US got directly involved in coming up with peace talks with Russia, I do believe something could be negotiated on with Russia before it spirals out of control.
Respect Trump for coming out and saying this. Obviously many in the Western media will harshly criticize anyone suggesting peace talks with Russia. Some might even call it "political suicide" in the media. But I don't think with your average American will be so harsh towards the idea of using Diplomacy to come to a deal with Russia to end this conflict. I do not believe the american people are all that excited about shipping billions in tax payer money to provide Military equipment and intel to a corrupt country like Ukraine, who is not even a US ally. Especially with that being the first option used before any real attempt at diplomacy... Trump probably could end the conflict. I don't believe anyone in this current administration wants to end this conflict. They want it to go as long as possible. I believe this is reckless and not the true position of what the American people want done. These are interests of elites and not Americans.
So good on Trump. Go off king.
