Russian President Vladimir Putin has been in discussion during the Russia -Ukraine war. Much discussion has been made by the former U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies that Russian President Vladimir Putin didn’t seize Ukraine until the Republicans had left the office.
“Make no mistake, however, then Russia would not have dared to annex one inch of the territory if I was in the White House,” Trump told a crowd in South Carolina over the weekend. “They never did it when I was there. A lot of people ask the question, ‘how come they never did it when Trump was president and China?’ He said they knew better. Yeah, that’s true.”
Eric Trump, the second eldest son of the former President, stated that he knows why that is.
“Putin was in with the KGB,” Eric Trump told Fox’s Sean Hannity. “He can read people and he could tell that Donald Trump was a very strong person.”
Eric’s comment was almost clearly unintentionally an echo of what George W. Bush had formerly said about Putin.
“I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy,” said Bush of Putin following a summit in Slovenia in June 2001. “We had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul; a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country.”
That comment was widely taunted at the time and, obviously, with the experience of history, looks even worse. Eric Trump claimed that, somehow, Putin made a psychological examination of his father and that’s why he didn’t invade Ukraine became a source of irony.
Among all the comments war on each other, Bolton, who served as Donald Trump’s national security consultant, revealed newly on a podcast that Putin may have waited to invade Ukraine because he thought Trump would pull the United States out of NATO if he won reelection.
In addition to this what they already know about Russia and Trump is that Russia energetically worked to intervene in the 2016 election to help Trump. What Russia did got cleared from special counsel Robert Muller’s report.
“First, a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favoured presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents. The investigation also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.”
