……After ticking off a litany of America’s woes, from the open border to inflation to mounting energy prices, Trump added: “I never thought anything like this could happen to us.”
He remains especially troubled by the deadly and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, asking, “Can you imagine taking the military out first? And giving up that big, beautiful Bagram Air Base that’s just an hour from China?”
“It was the single biggest embarrassment in our history,” he insisted.
Does he think Biden will finish the term? “I don’t know,” he said, “but we are being systematically destroyed. We are no longer feared, respected or even liked.”
……There are other stories making the rounds, too, and they are even more provocative. One has it that Trump — noting that Putin seized land from Georgia when George W. Bush was president and seized the Crimean peninsula when Barack Obama was president — warned Putin against a land grab on his watch.
“If you move against Ukraine while I’m president,” Trump is said to have told the Russian leader, “I will hit Moscow.”
Putin reportedly scoffed, “No way,” leading Trump to say, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”
A similar story involves Chinese President Xi Jinping. It was during his visit to Mar-a-Lago in 2017 when Trump famously interrupted their chocolate cake dessert to declare he had just ordered the US military to fire 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base after the Syrian government used chemical weapons against rebels and civilians.
During that same visit, Trump reportedly told Xi that any military move against Taiwan would be met with an attack on Beijing. Xi, like Putin, is said to have been stunned, though it is possible neither man believed Trump was serious. While it is also possible that both accounts are exaggerated, it is a fact that neither man made the moves Trump is said to have warned against.
China knew not to mess with Trump. Beijing even warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that President Trump’s threats should be taken very seriously, telling the dictator to stop pursuing its nuclear program or face a military strike from the United States.
President Trump stood up to Putin, ordering tough sanctions on Russia and expelling 60 Russians from the United States in response to the poisoning in England attributed to the Russians.
This motherfucker kills thousands of American jobs and energy independence along with the Keystone pipeline but does everything possible to help the fucking Russkies with Nordstream.
During the Alaska summit, the ChiComs mocked Biden’s incompetency and had a field day with Tony Blinken.
No wonder Putin knew it would be easy to plow through Ukraine.
