The world is in trouble because of the Russia-Ukraine war and President Donald Trump is suggesting that perhaps he should be the one to head up a negotiating team and get a deal done to end it.
He was commenting this week on news that the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines from Russia to Europe were sabotaged.
He said American leaders should be “cool” in response to the disaster, but also said a “deal” over the Russian assault on Ukraine needs to be done.
On his own Truth Social social-media platform, he said, “U.S. ‘Leadership’ should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines. This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet. The Russia/Ukraine catastrophe should NEVER have happened, and would not have happened if I were President,” he said.
The Washington Examiner noted, “Trump mockingly put the word ‘leadership’ in quotation marks to throw shade at President Joe Biden.”
Trump continued, “Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup. Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), and get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”
He suggested the Russian conflict with Ukraine would not have happened under his leadership, and in fact, multiple confrontations are developing now among world leaders, such as China, Russia, and North Korea, that did not during his first term in office.
The Examiner reported that Trump “also flagged remarks Biden made back in February, warning that ‘if Russia invades … then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.'”
Trump called Biden’s claim a “World War III” statement.
Just the News reported the Nord Stream pipelines began to leak on Tuesday, and the European Union Council reported it appeared to be sabotage.
