'The entire world is at stake'
By Bob Unruh
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 apparently 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 definitely 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!), 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 Russia conflict with Ukraine would not have happened under his leadership, and in fact there are multiple confrontations developing now among world leaders, such as China, Russia and North Korea, that did not during his first term in office.
