Donald Trump Says Vladimir Putin Is Smart, 'Played Joe Biden Like A Drum' (Pics) by Macsjebs: 7:20pm On Feb 27
Former US president predicted a 'major war in Europe' before teasing another White House run at a speech in Florida

Donald Trump condemned Russia's invasion of Ukraine and predicted a "major war in Europe" but partially blamed Joe Biden and "delinquent" Nato leaders for the crisis.

Addressing an adoring crowd in Orlando, Florida, the former US president attacked Mr Biden as "weak and incompetent" and said: "Putin is playing Biden like a drum".

"This horrific disaster would never have happened if our election was not rigged and if I was the president," he said, referencing his baseless claims he was the true winner of the 2020 election.

Mr Trump once again teased the prospect of another run for the White House, saying of the November 2024 election: "We did it twice, and we'll do it again. We're going to be doing it again, a third time".

The thousands who had gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) roared its approval at the comments, breaking into chants of "four more years".

In the more than 90-minute speech, Mr Trump claimed Mr Biden and the radical left were "trying to replace American democracy with woke tyranny".

While calling the situation in Ukraine "a catastrophic disaster", Mr Trump went on to attack Democrats for rushing defend the country's borders "while they're destroying our own borders" with failed immigration policies.

In a shift from his earlier praise of Mr Putin's assault on Ukraine as "genius", he condemned Moscow's all-out attack on Ukraine as "appalling".

However he defended his previous comments. "The problem is not that Putin is smart, which, of course, he's smart," Mr Trump said.

"The real problem is that our leaders are dumb," he said, adding that the leaders of Nato member states were "all delinquent"

He struck an uncharacteristically empathetic tone as he expressed sympathy for Ukraine saying: "We are praying for the proud people of Ukraine. God bless them all".

Trump hails 'brave' Zelensky

Mr Trump also had warm words for the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, calling him a "brave man" as he defiantly remained in the capital Kyiv amid the onslaught from Russian forces.

It was Mr Trump's 2019 phone call with the Ukrainian leader that led to him being impeached by Democrats in the US House of Representatives.

In Orlando on Saturday night Mr Trump said: "I like him because during that ridiculous impeachment waste of time.... the president of Ukraine said 'he did absolutely nothing wrong'."

He also accused his predecessors of failing to counter Russia, citing Russia's invasion of Georgia under George W Bush and Crimea under Barack Obama.

"I stand as the only president of the 21st century on whose watch Russia did not invade another country," he bragged.

In an interview released earlier on Saturday, Mr Biden mocked Mr Trump's comment that the Russian leader is a "genius".

"I put as much stock in Trump saying that Putin is a genius than when he called himself a stable genius," Mr Biden said.

As he alluded to a return to the White House, Mr Trump repeated his 2016 campaign slogan to "make America great again" and vowed to complete his signature border wall "in three weeks".

Mr Trump's continued hold over the Republican base was evident once more at the jamboree, which describes itself as the largest annual gathering of grassroots of conservatives on the planet.

"Trump 2024" flags, hats and badges filled the large conference centre in Orlando along with a golden statue of the former president.

'I'm praying he runs'

Many of those who had travelled from across the US to attend the conference expressed their unwavering belief that the 75-year-old will make another bid for the presidency.

Shonna Smith, 58, a resort manager from Arkansas, said she had been hoping Mr Trump would announce his candidacy on Saturday night.

"I'm praying he [runs]," she said, adding his credentials as a businessman made him the best candidate to lead the country.

"Right now I think we look weak [on the world stage]," she said in reference to Mr Biden's handling of the Ukraine crisis

Karen Zaletel, a 60-year-old former stock broker, said she was convinced Mr Trump would be victorious in 2024.

"Everyone gave him a standing ovation," she said, describing his speech as "positive and funny".

She added that she was "really impressed" by his energy levels.

Sure such jibe would be expected from Trump, and for two reasons especially.

1. The politics of Democrats and Republicans, not to mention he's still sour from his loss at the polls.

2. For someone Trump's character, you cant put it completely past him the possibility of him still hailing Putin, although indirectly, in this situation if he were still the president. Trump's never hidden his admiration for Putty Put even when he was in the White House, a situation that offended US's allies no end.

His remarks about Zelensky showing bravery is simply him trying not to appear too pro Russia in the eyes of the public. But behind closed doors, he sure would give Zelensky the middle finger and Putin a firm handshake with a pat on the back.

Americans are Regretting ever voting for Biden, Here is why:

- Gas under Trump is Cheaper than Water (1$ to anything under 2$). While Gas under Biden is 6 dollars and still going up now because of Russia-Ukraine War

- Grocery Stores shelves are going empty which means business is not striving because of Inflation and people are not buying as they should because there is no Money (this is familiar, Bubu style)

- There was peace in Afghanistan I.e A Single American soldier was not kill for 17 months when Trump started talking with the Taliban chief. (Trump showed the taliban Chief the picture of the chief house and encourage him to take peace) but Biden Handover Afghanistan to Taliban

- Putin Could not enter Ukraine or any country close to Russia under trump but he is taking Over Ukraine as You're reading this just like he took over Crimea under Obama and Georgia under George W Bush

- Trump is the only American President to Enter North korean after he bully the republic by threatening to Annihilate Kim Jun un by destroying all north korea, and this is in his United Nation Speech

Some of you will just open mouth waaaa! yarning thrash without researching.Ekuke analyst.

Current inflation in US is caused by the supply chain crises as a result of reopening the US economy after shutdowns from coronavirus coupled with high demand from consumers.

Biden made the best decision to pull out from Afghanistan,they should take responsibility for their own country,US can't keep wasting resources there.

Putin would still have invaded Ukraine with or without trump in office.

I know y'all are still pained over Trump loss.

Bunch of sore losers!

The only part of this gibberish that is correct is when he says,
"This horrific disaster would never have happened if our election was not rigged and if I was the president,"

Putin won't have to invade Ukraine to prevent the continuous expansion of NATO because Trump was actively destroying NATO itself. So there was nothing to fear there.

complete BS. The over supply of dollars, to much liquidity causes inflation, the shutting down of America's oil industry and relying of foreign oil made fuel prices go up.
Pulling the US army out if Afghanistan is Trump's idea, in fact it started under him, it was Bumbling Biden that bungled the whole pull out by evacuating the soldiers before civilians, who does that? Only a failed foolish man. The same person who his own boss Obama, said that no one should underestimate his ability to mess thing up.
WHY DIDN'T PUTIN INVADE UKRAINE FOR 4 WHOLE YEARS YOUR NIGHTMARE WAS IN POWER? WHY? This forum is full of imbeciles.

Didn't Putin play Joe Biden like a fiddle? Putin took advantage of Biden s stupidity. Why are you people hating Trump this much. The fact is that Putin did not do anything throughout Trump's administration.

The most critical and pathetic former POTUS alive you seem.
Criticizing everything breathing or dead like a destiny call, leadership-to-the-dog kinda human.

You would not see past POTUS taking on their fellows like it's a life mission, but garrulous Trump. Biden has plenty errors, but alas! It's his time. Go sit yourself down and breathe freely. He defeated you, for once try to recover from that

The part where he said "they were trying to replace America's democracy with woke tyranny" speaks volume. America needs to stop interfering with the leadership of foreign countries. This is one of the things causing problems for the world at large. Iraq and Libya readily comes to mind. Not forgetting that this Ukrainian crisis also erupted from the American backed coup in 2014 that saw former President Viktor Yanukovych removed and replaced with Petro Poroshenko.
