the former republican president called for an immediate reduction of tensions and the establishment of peace in Ukraine, at the same time that he charged President Joe Biden, for doing, he noted, “what he said ten months ago would cause World War III: sending American tanks to Ukraine.”
“Biden’s weakness and incompetence They have brought us to the brink of nuclear war.”he added.
