President Trump voiced the fears of millions of Americans who have watched the war in Eastern Europe unfold since early 2022, speaking out on Joe Biden’s latest move to send 31 M1 Abrams Tanks to Ukraine this week.
“FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
The war between Ukraine and Russia has raged since early 2022. At the behest of the Biden administration, the U.S. has sent nearly $100 billion in aid to Ukraine, as reported by RSBN.
This week, Joe Biden announced that the U.S. would be providing further assistance to Ukraine by giving them U.S. Abrams tanks. Per the U.S. Department of Defense, the tanks are being sent to help Ukrainian forces hold their territory and implement additional counter-offenses.
“Secretary Austin has recommended this step because it will enhance the Ukraine’s capacity to defend its territory and to achieve its strategic objectives,” Biden explained this week in a press conference.
He added that the U.S. was also giving Ukraine the “parts and equipment necessary to effectively sustain these tanks on the battlefield.”
In February 2022, President Trump addressed the Russian invasion of Ukraine, making some notable points. “If I were in Office, this deadly Ukraine situation would never have happened,” he told Fox News. “It wouldn’t have taken place, and it wouldn’t have taken place right now. And it’s a very sad thing for the world, for the country, and it’s certainly for sad for a lot of people that are gonna be needlessly killed.”
Via RSBN, Russia undertook a full-scale invasion of Ukraine last year with land, aerial, and sea assaults. Since then, the Biden administration has relentlessly funneled billions of taxpayer dollars toward supporting the embattled country.
