We were told that Trump was Putin’s stooge. That his election was the result of “Russian Collusion.” Never mind the sanctions or lack of evidence, Trump was Putin’s preferred president, right?
Well, according to former national security official Fiona Hill, Putin waited until Trump left office before invading Ukraine. Hill, who previously testified against Trump in his impeachment hearing, said of Putin:
He thought that somebody like Biden, who’s a transatlanticist, who knows all about NATO, who actually knows where Ukraine is, and actually knows something about the history, and is very steeped in international affairs, would be the right person to engage with as opposed to somebody that you have to explain everything to all the time, honestly.
What I find interesting is that Hill sounds like she is making an attack on Trump when really she is saying that Putin believes he can get away with more under Biden. He felt he could get a better deal from Biden than Trump. Hill is telling all those folks who changed their social media avatars to include the Ukrainian flag, “Were it not for Biden, there wouldn’t even be a war in Ukraine.”
I think we all knew that to be true, but it is fun to hear a Biden supporter admit it, intentionally or not.Published in
