Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has warned the American people that President Joe Biden’s troop mobilization is preparation for “ground war with Russia.”
Earlier this week, Biden mobilized U.S. troops to support Operation Atlantic Resolve.
Biden has called up thousands of military reservists to bolster U.S. troops in Europe as part of the 2014 operation.
“President Biden just called up 3,000 reservists to augment U.S. troops in Europe as part of ‘Operation Atlantic Resolve,'” Kennedy tweeted on Friday.
“I want people to understand what this troop mobilization is about,” he continued.
“It’s about preparing for a ground war with Russia.”

On Thursday, Biden announced that his administration is mustering reserve troops to ensure the “effective conduct of Operation Atlantic Resolve in and around the United States European Command’s area of responsibility.”
The president is calling up 3,000 reserve troops from the Selected and Individual Ready Reserves, with no more than 450 from the Individual Ready Reserve.
Biden’s troop augmentation comes while the president is overseas for the NATO conference.
“This is reckless [and] dangerous,” Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted.
“I want to see Putin defeated, but UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should U.S. servicemen [and] women be sent to fight in Ukraine.”
“Biden’s weakness started this war [and] now he’s threatening to put our military in a shooting war with Russia,” Cruz added.
This is reckless & dangerous.

Republican Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) also weighed in on Biden’s European mobilization in a Twitter thread.
Lee warns that the move is “daring Russia to shoot first.”
“I’ve been trying to figure out what this means,” Lee wrote.
“Bottom line up front: President Biden is arguably walking the U.S. up to the line of war and daring Russia to shoot first.”
