Former President Donald Trump made a statement on February 21 on Twitter in which he talked about the “endless wars” of both the present and former administrations. He blamed “Warmongers and Globalists” for the current state of the world and criticized President Joe Biden for allowing the international conflict to happen.
The former commander-in-chief warned that “World War III has never been closer than it is right now.” Adding that in order to avert such a catastrophe, “We need to clean house of all of the warmongers and America-last globalists.”
He claimed that because he stood alone and disregarded the catastrophic advice”of authorities who only knew how to start wars, not stop them, he “was the only president in generations who didn’t start a war.”
Trump said that long-serving officials in Washington, including military generals and state department employees, had only wanted conflict with Ukraine. He argued that Biden “never made a good decision,” even in the eyes of “his own people,”and that if he had been president, the Russian invasion of Ukraine “would’ve never happened.”
The former president noted that decades of bad foreign policy continue to be a significant part in the current predicament but did not elaborate on how he would have avoided the war. He used his time in office as evidence, stating that during that time, the nation “made incredible progress” in putting America first and advancing toward world peace.
Trump referred to his rivals as “candidates of war,” saying he would be “the president who delivers peace, and it’s peace through strength.” He also claimed that during his presidency, he strengthened the US military, making it a force to be reckoned with, and claimed that “and now they’re laughing at us,” alluding to the conflict in Ukraine and its seeming interminable timeline. According to him, competent US leadership could put a stop to Russia’s war “in 24 hours.”
The former president claimed he has plans for improvements to “get things done” and that now is the time to “complete the mission” of making Washington into “a very different place.”
