As Russia’s attack on Ukraine began on Wednesday night, Trump called in to the Laura Ingraham show on FOX News to offer some comments.
Trump laid the blame on Joe Biden’s weakness as a leader and said that this would not have happened on his watch.
He also said it was a sad development for the world and the country.
Newsweek has details:
Donald Trump Says Biden’s ‘Weakness, Incompetence, Stupidity’ Led to Invasion
Former President Donald Trump claims that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is due to President Joe Biden’s “weakness,” “incompetence” and “stupidity.”
The former president, speaking Wednesday night on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, told host Laura Ingraham that Biden “doesn’t know what the hell he is doing.”
“It’s a disgrace,” Trump claimed. “It’s an absolute disgrace.”
Trump continued by saying that the invasion of Russia would not have happened had he won the 2020 presidential election.
“I think the whole thing again, would have never happened,” Trump said about the invasion. “It shouldn’t happen, and it’s a very sad thing.”
“It all happened because of a rigged election. This would’ve never happened,” the former president added.
Trump also claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin had decided to invade Ukraine because he felt “weakness” from the United States under the leadership of Biden. This has resulted, Trump claimed, in Putin pushing toward a complete invasion of Ukraine.
“[Putin] was going to be satisfied with the beast,” Trump said. “And now he sees the weakness and the incompetence of the stupidity of this administration.”

Trump is not wrong.
In fact, at the time of Trump’s call, Joe Biden was not even available for comment.
