Donald Trump has branded Vladimir Putin ‘genius’ over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. 

The former US president appeared on a conservative radio show on February 22 and dubbed Russia’s leader a ‘savvy’ guy.

He said: “I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius’. Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine—of Ukraine. Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful.

“So, Putin is now saying, ‘It’s independent,’ a large section of Ukraine. I said, ‘How smart is that?’ And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s the strongest peace force. We could use that on our southern border. That’s the strongest peace force I’ve ever seen. There were more army tanks than I’ve ever seen. They’re gonna keep peace all right.

“No, but think of it. Here’s a guy who’s very savvy, I know him very well. Very, very well.”

The 75-year-old went on to say that none of this would have happened if his election hadn’t been ‘rigged’.

“What went wrong was a rigged election,” he remarked. “And what went wrong is a candidate that shouldn’t be there and a man that has no concept of what he’s doing.”

According to reports, President Joe Biden was meant to meet with Putin but due to rising tensions, this is not in the ‘plans’.

Recently, he tweeted: “At every step, we have shown that the United States and our Allies and partners are working in unison.

“We are united in our support for Ukraine. We are united in our opposition to Russia’s aggression. We are united in our resolve to defend our Alliance.”
