Donald Trump Accuses Joe Biden Of Risking Nuclear War With Russia


Donald Trump accused Joe Biden of risking provoking Vladimir Putin into a nuclear conflict after the US president called for the Russian premier’s removal.

The former president stepped in as administration officials tried to undo the damage from what is seen as Mr. Biden’s biggest gaffe since coming into office.

In an unscripted aside to what was supposed to be a hard-hitting speech in Poland, Mr. Biden added: “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

His remark appeared to cause panic in the White House, which rushed out a statement insisting that “regime change” in Moscow was not on the administration’s agenda.

In an interview with the conservative outlet Newsmax, Mr. Trump said he feared the damage had already been done.

“When you put him into a corner and you talk the way they’re talking – they’re talking weak – and they’re almost giving him an incentive,” Mr. Trump said.

“They’re handling him very badly, in my opinion.”

Beyond the US, there were signs that other leaders were keen to distance themselves from Mr. Biden’s remarks – in which he also described the Russian president as a “butcher”.

“I think we must do everything to avoid the situation getting out of hand,” said Emmanuel Macron, the French president.

“I wouldn’t use these kinds of words because I’m still in talks with President Putin.

What is our collective goal here? We want to stop the war that Russia has launched in Ukraine without going to war and without escalating things.

“This is the objective. If we want to do this, we must not be in the escalation of either words or actions.”

“We must not, we Europeans, give in to any escalation. We Europeans must not forget our geography and our history. We are not at war with the Russian people.”

‘No strategy of regime change’

Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, stepped up the administration’s attempts to defuse the crisis on Sunday.

During a visit to Jerusalem on Sunday, he said: “I think the president, the White House, made the point last night that, quite simply, President Putin cannot be empowered to wage war or engage in aggression against Ukraine or anyone else.

“As you know, and as you have heard us say repeatedly, we do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia – or anywhere else, for that matter.

“In this case, as in any case, it’s up to the people of the country in question. It’s up to the Russian people.

But experts, including Richard Haass, president of the US Council on Foreign Relations, accused the president of intensifying the crisis.

But to be honest guys, Donald Trump is the last person on earth to criticize Joe Biden for anything, Mr. Biden is only echoing what is in the minds of many, Donald Trump would have handed over Ukraine to Putin if he was still in charge
