I watched it on TV on Monday and thought, “That’s genius.” Putin declares independence of Ukraine. Trump said. Trump continued, “How smart is Putin?” First, declare the independence of these two regions. Now he is sending peacekeepers to Ukraine. This is the most powerful peacekeeping force I have ever seen. We could also use such a display of force on our southern border. Under his supervision, Trump stressed, the current scenario is “unthinkable.” Putin is very bright. I know him well. Very, very good.” “And do you know what Biden’s response is?” Trump said, describing Biden as “a guy who has no idea what he’s doing.” There was no response.
Trump’s comments come as the United States has imposed sanctions that would undermine Russia’s ability to do business with the West. “This is what vulnerability looks like on the world stage,” Republican Adam Kinzinger said on Twitter.
