Trump Minimizes Putin’s Bloody Invasion At Saturday Rally: He Just Needs ‘Somebody To Talk To Him’

At a rally in Florence, South Carolina on Saturday evening, failed former President Donald Trump downplayed the brutality of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, suggesting that he simply needed “somebody to talk to him.”

The ex-president, who at times sounded exhausted and spoke for less than an hour, remarked:

“But the swamp was deep deeper than anybody believed, despite all of Biden’s weakness, cowardice and incompetence, there is still a path for him to end this tragedy in Ukraine. Without getting Americans snared in a gruesome and very bloody war. Bloody war. This could lead by the way this could lead to World War Three. I see what’s happening. Because if you think Putin is going to stop, it’s going to get worse and worse. He’s not going to accept it, and we don’t have anybody to talk to him. You had somebody to talk to him with me.”

Trump also told rallygoers:

“(Putin) happens to be a man who is driven. He’s driven to put it together.”

Just this week, Putin’s troops attacked a maternity hospital in Mariupol, killing three people and endangering the lives of pregnant women and their babies. But he just needs someone to talk to? Sounds like he needs someone to put a bag on his head and deliver him to the International Criminal Court in the Hague for crimes against humanity.

Twitter users were disgusted by Trump’s attempt to minimize Putin’s brutality:

Maybe we can arrest Trump at the same time as Putin and put them both on trial.
