President Joe Biden is presiding over a Russian invasion of Ukraine, but Democrats say former President Donald Trump shoulders significant blame.
Democrats claim Trump emboldened Russian President Vladimir Putin throughout his term and point to his use of adjectives like “savvy,” “genius,” and “smart” to describe the Moscow strongman’s recent activity.
WILL BIDEN’S ‘FULL-SCALE’ RESPONSE STOP PUTIN WHERE PAST SANCTIONS FAILED?
Republicans counter that these Trump comments are a mix of sarcasm and criticism and that Biden seems overmatched in his battle of wits with Putin. Trump has steadfastly maintained that if he were still in office, the Russian onslaught against Ukraine would not occur.
