President Joe Biden may have talked tough at the onset of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but after seven months of conflict, billions in American tax dollars and now suspicious damage to the Nord Stream pipelines, former President Donald Trump made the case for an active role as “the entire world is at stake.”
There can be no certainty that Russian President Vladimir Putin would have acted differently had Trump begun a second term, but it has been well-established that both his predecessor and successor were forced to contend with Russian aggression while the nation remained at bay during his administration. The strong case has been made in favor of the president’s bold leadership and, with new concerns rising in the region, Trump made a similar argument Tuesday as he volunteered to lead negotiations to end the Russian invasion.
Writing on Truth Social, the president stated, “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 definitely not have happened if I were President. Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup. Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”
The offer comes following reports of leaks from both Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2, which transport natural gas from Russia to Germany, and the suspected origins of what may have caused the blasts damaging the critical energy pipelines.
Considering how Biden blamed Putin’s invasion for rising energy costs while expressing his sincere hope that it would accelerate a transition to Green alternatives, Fox News host Tucker Carlson tackled the possibility that the current administration may have had a direct role to play in the damage to the pipelines.
Pointing to corroborating statements from Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and Biden himself, the host laid out how stopping the pipelines would only make the current fuel crisis worse and ramp up the need for a move to electric vehicles.
However, the most damning statement of all came in February when Biden said if Russia invaded “we would bring an end” to Nord Stream 2.
Pres. Biden: "If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it."
Reporter: "But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany's control?"

“If they did this,” Carlson said, “this will be one of the craziest, most destructive things any American administration has ever done. But it would also be totally consistent with what they do. What do they do? They destroy. These people built nothing, not one thing. Instead, they tear down and they desecrate from historic statues to the Constitution to energy infrastructure and no one in Congress is trying to stop any of it.”
As Biden’s take from before the invasion went viral, Trump shared the concerning remarks and posted to Truth Social, “Wow, what a statement. World War III anyone?”
Of course, rather than consider the possibility that the president under whom no new wars began and the Abraham Accords were signed might be an excellent choice to cut through the mismanagement of Biden’s so-called deterrence that has yet to stop anything seven months later, the left leaned into their baser instincts and returned to their favored Russian collusion narrative.
Saw it coming. He is nothing if not predictable. https://t.co/NeM7d6L9oZ

Seriously Trump negotiating between Russia and Ukraine?
Yeah that sounds more like having an abusive ex negotiate for you with a hitman that has your contract.

I’ve actually been waiting for this moment. LOL. Both donnie and vlad have now been humiliated and repudiated on the world stage, even by their joint allies: Xi, Modi and Erdogan. What better ruse than to claim he brokered world peace.
