President Donald Trump offered to broker a deal between Russia and Ukraine this week following escalating tensions, suggesting that the leaks in the Nord Stream pipelines were caused by “SABOTAGE.”
“U.S. ‘Leadership’ should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “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.”
As European nations rise against each other and Joe Biden’s administration continually walks back endless gaffes and political fumbles, the United States has found itself teetering on the edge of watching the beginning of another world war.
Now, more than ever, the U.S. needs strong leadership, and President Trump is the man for the job.
Trump Was Right
Trump noted in his recent Truth Social statement that the Biden administration should be “strategic” and “smart” and advised them to “Get a negotiated deal done NOW.”
“Both sides need and want it,” he wrote. “The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”
Trump’s solemn words of advice come on the heels of suspicious seismic activity on the Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea, where the gas lines run underwater from Russia to Germany, as reported by Fox News.
The gas leaks and the preceding explosions have brought great tension. Per Fox News, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki both believe that the leaks resulted from direct sabotage.
To make matters worse, in February, Joe Biden made remarks ahead of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, promising, “If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”
Unfortunately, Biden’s past comments have also cast light on the United States regarding who could be behind the alleged sabotage events of the Nord Stream pipelines.
“…I brought to the World’s attention as President when I explained how crippling reliance on it [the pipelines] could be for Germany and other parts of Europe,” Trump pointed out in an earlier Truth Social post, referring to the pipelines. “Everybody laughed at the time, but they are not laughing anymore!”
He concluded, “This could lead to major escalation, or War!”
Historically, Trump’s predictions have been right on the money. In 2020, the 45th president predicted that if Joe Biden assumed control of the White House, “The policies of the left would unleash an economic disaster of epic proportions,” per CBS.
Today, Americans are seeing the fruits of leftist fiscal policy, with inflation shooting through the roof and grocery stores across the country entangled in damaging supply chain snarls.
The war between Russia and Ukraine has only made things worse, and adding fuel to the fire are Democrat spending policies. According to a report from the Associated Press, the U.S. will provide another $1.1 billion in aid to Ukraine, bringing the total aid to almost $17 billion.
As Joe Biden and the Democrats send billions of American taxpayer dollars overseas, the southern border remains wide open and unsecured, in yet another display of total disregard for the safety and integrity of United States sovereignty.
The World is Hungry for Strong Leadership
When Trump was in office, he was nicknamed the “President of Peace” by some. No new wars were started on his administration’s watch, and he even managed to broker a historic peace deal in the Middle East, the Abraham Accords.
Trump was a towering figure on the global plateau, leveling the playing field and demanding respect from world leaders who had long taken advantage of the United States’ tepid and weak foreign trade policies. As president, Trump’s expertise in executing the “Art of the Deal” secured lower gas prices for Americans, great trade deals, and international peace.
With Trump out of the White House and the radical left Democrats in control, the world has been thrust into chaos. Trump, despite currently being a private citizen, consistently draws thousands upon thousands of supporters to his Save America rallies every month, demonstrating the hunger of American citizens for strong, no-holds-barred leadership.
While Trump has not yet formally announced whether he will run for president again in 2024, polling suggests that if he does, he will easily dominate any Republican contenders and seize the GOP’s nomination.
The world is perched on the precipice of global war, and few people have the ability to de-escalate the situation and bring peace back to Europe. Donald Trump is one of those few.
