Trump praises Putin and denigrates US leaders in the CPAC
Donald Trump has once again ruled out the possibility of directly criticizing Vladimir Putin. Talking to Maria Bartiroma of Fox Business, the president said of the war Russia started in Ukraine, “it’s the Holocaust. It’s a horrible thing going on, you see. I mean, you see it on TV every night. ”
However, his main verdict was that “the biggest problem we have is that our president and our country are no longer respected” – and that the solution to Russia’s attack on Ukraine is “drafting an agreement.”
Earlier this week, a former White House aide and expert on Russia Fiona Hill claimed in an interview with Politics that Vladimir Putin once tried to force Trump to pay attention to Russia’s nuclear deterrence, but the former president did not understand what the Russian leader was telling him.
Meanwhile, the 45th president remained largely silent during Joe Biden’s speech last night, leaving it to Donald Trump Jr., who attacked transgender children, shortly after President Joe Biden continued his support during a speech on the state of the Union, saying: “I will always have your back.”
“Joe Biden wants to help young transgender people reach their full potential – it’s great, but it seems their only focus is on women’s sports,” Mr Trump wrote on Twitter.
