President Donald Trump has stepped in and overruled Joe Biden by sending a direct warning to Vladimir Putin regarding Russia’s intentions to invade Ukraine.
Trump was responding after Democrat President Biden sent shockwaves around the world by seeming to greenlight a Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Following a strong rebuke from Ukraine’s president, Trump has also issued a warning to Putin not to invade via GOP Senator Lindsey Graham.
“He said Putin is realizing that Biden’s weak, but he doesn’t realize that Biden won’t be around in 2024,” Sen. Graham said of Trump’s message.
“So President Trump said today if they invade Ukraine, the Russians, it will make it impossible for any future president to have a normal relationship with Russia.”
Graham said this “was a pretty damn wise observation.”
Graham added that Putin could not invade Ukraine “and get away with it” with Trump as president unlike with the current occupant of the White House.
Graham also said Trump was “floored” by Biden’s poor performance in office.
MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough also smelled Biden’s weakness.
Joe said: “It was a terrible moment in the press conference when he talked about a minor incursion.
“There is no minor incursion.
“There is separation among the NATO allies and ourselves on Russia.
“There was separation because of the way we got out of Afghanistan.
“So, again, here is the problem. Biden seemed as weak from Russia, China and our allies on Afghanistan.
“If he’s seen as being weak on Ukraine, we’ll be back here six months from now talking about that minor incursion into Taiwan.
“The whole world is watching. Afghanistan set a poor precedent for Joe Biden.
“Fair or not — the Biden administration will tell you for two hours they did exactly what they needed to do, and it was a success in the end, and we’ll let historians debate that, but Putin and Xi and our NATO allies are not debating that right now.
“They see Joe Biden as weak.
“Yesterday’s press conference did not help.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said: “We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones.
“I say this as the president of a great power.”
