Trump accuses Biden of “absolute failure”, including on Ukraine | world news
Former US President Donald Trump has said the incompetence of the current administration in Washington could lead to an escalation of the Ukraine crisis.
“We have incompetent people running things,” Trump told supporters at a Sunday rally in Greenwood, Nebraska, warning that the situation in Ukraine is “a very dangerous thing” and that “it could be a world war”.
Trump blasted US President Joe Biden again, describing his performance as “an unparalleled and utter failure” and reiterating that Biden would have done more damage in 16 months than the five worst presidents in US history combined.
Trump said Biden “embarrasses” the United States and that world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, no longer respect the United States. Trump claimed that Putin is “throwing the word [‘nuclear’] around all the time, because he doesn’t respect our leadership.”
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has repeatedly stressed that Russia is not threatening anyone with nuclear war, but that Western countries and Ukraine have constantly “played with the words” nuclear war “”.
According to Trump, other presidents don’t answer Biden’s phone calls and “want nothing to do with him except take advantage of us.” The former president suggested that Biden should “take a cognitive test and post the results for the whole world to see.”
Trump pointed to record inflation in the United States, saying Biden and his administration are trying to shift blame and blame Putin for the price hike. “Blame Putin, why not,” Trump said mockingly.
According to the former president, the Biden administration is responsible for the loss of American dominant positions in the energy field and is now trying to get along with Iran, Venezuela, Russia and OPEC. Meanwhile, gasoline, which was under $2 a gallon in the United States under Trump, is now $8 a gallon in some places in the United States, according to the former president.
Trump pointed out that Democrats and the current US administration are the biggest threat to the country, not outside problems, like Ukraine. Trump stressed that the upcoming midterm elections are “the most important midterm elections in United States history” and urged his supporters to vote.
According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted April 24-28, Biden’s overall disapproval rating stands at 52%, while 47% of Americans disapprove of the president’s handling of the Ukraine issue in particular (compared to 42%. % who approve).
Earlier in April, CNN reported that Biden’s approval rating hit the lowest point of any president before him after a year and three months in office.
