If it’s Monday… Ukraine and Russia are in the midst of yet another round of talks. According to US government officials, Russia has requested military weaponry from China. In Washington, D.C., President Biden speaks to the National League of Cities before attending a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in the evening. Sarah Godlewski’s first TV ad for the Wisconsin Senate is broadcast… and Tom Brady is back with the Buccaneers. But first, former President Donald Trump is attempting to resolve his Putin impasse, but he has yet to be able to criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin in the same way that he does his other adversaries.
“Do you believe Putin will come to a halt?” It’s only going to get worse. He’s not going to go along with it. And we don’t have someone with whom we can speak. According to NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard, Trump remarked in South Carolina on Saturday, “You had someone to talk to him with me; no one was ever harsher on Russia than me.” “The United States must make plain to Putin that he has two choices: negotiate peace immediately or suffer severe consequences, including an effort to permanently cease reliance on Russian energy,” Trump continued. (In fact, Biden has already prohibited Russia from importing oil.)
“It happens to be a man who is just motivated, he’s driven to put it together,” the former president remarked of Putin. According to NBC’s Jonathan Allen, the war in Ukraine has caused a schism between Trump and Republican elites on Putin. It’s also dividing Trump supporters who want the US to do more for Ukraine, according to NBC’s Henry Gomez. “I don’t think we’re doing enough,” Republican Mary King said in Steubenville, Ohio. “Ask the public what they are willing to sacrifice,” King added. “I pray every day to St. Nicholas to save the children in Ukraine who are in danger.”

“I would like you to do us a favor, though, because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike,” After considering the purchase of Javelin anti-tank missiles, Trump warned Ukraine’s Zelenskyy in 2019. More Trump from 2019: “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.”
“I think that the release of that transcript showed the world that we had an administration that was ready to trade our national security for personal and political gain,” Marie Yovanovitch, a former US ambassador to Ukraine, stated on “Meet the Press” yesterday.
