Trump warns U.S. government to choose their words carefully with Russia

Former US president Donald Trump has criticized the U.S. government for “saying exactly the wrong thing” to Russia following President Joe Biden’s comments on the “prospect of Armageddon” amid President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats.

Trump said the Biden administration ought to be urging Russia and Ukraine to broker a peace deal, warning that the current war could lead to “World War III,” according to The Hill.

“And now we have a war between Russia and Ukraine with potentially hundreds of thousands of people dying,” Trump said at a rally in Arizona on Sunday.

“We must demand immediate negotiation of a peaceful end to the war in Ukraine, or we will end up in World War III and there will never be a war like this.”

“We have to be very smart and very nimble. We have to know what to say, what to do. And we are saying exactly the wrong thing. We’ll end up in a World War III,” Trump said.

On Sunday, Trump’s former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Biden’s Armageddon comment “reckless.”

“When you hear the president talking about ‘Armageddon’ as a random thought … at a fundraiser, that is a terrible risk for the American people. He ought to be talking to us in a serious way,” Pompeo said.

As The Hill reported, White House national security spokesman John Kirby defended Biden’s comments on Sunday, saying that Biden was “accurately reflecting the fact that the stakes are very high right now.”

Putin has accused the west of “nuclear blackmail” and warned that Russia will protect its motherland by any means necessary.
