The former head of the White House expressed confidence that in the event of his tenure as President of the United States, the conflict would have been avoided.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump believes that Russian leader Vladimir Putin was wiser than the American leadership in the situation around Ukraine and beat the current head of the White House Joe Biden. He voiced this point of view, speaking at a conference of conservative circles in the United States. The broadcast was conducted by the Newsmax TV channel.

“It’s not just that Putin is smart <…>, but that our leaders are stupid, so stupid,” Trump said. He also expressed confidence that if he had remained as president, the conflict over Ukraine would have been avoided.
