45th President Donald Trump said in an email statement on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin never would have invaded Ukraine if he were still in the White House and noted that Russia has become “very, very rich” under Democrat career politician Joe Biden.

Trump’s remarks came after Putin, on Monday, reportedly sent troops into the pro-Russian regions of Luhansk and Donetsk and declared those regions independent.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America:

If properly handled, there was absolutely no reason that the situation currently happening in Ukraine should have happened at all. I know Vladimir Putin very well, and he would have never done during the Trump Administration what he is doing now, no way!

Russia has become very very rich during the Biden Administration, with oil prices doubling and soon to be tripling and quadrupling. The weak sanctions are insignificant relative to taking over a country and a massive piece of strategically located land.

Now it has begun, oil prices are going higher and higher, and Putin is not only getting what he always wanted, but getting, because of the oil and gas surge, richer and richer.

The U.S. was energy independent under the Trump Administration, an independence that we had never obtained before, and oil prices would have remained low. Now, what a mess our Country is in! Continued Below

Biden, on Monday, imposed some new sanctions prohibiting trade with the Kremlin-backed regions, but administration officials initially refused to call Putin’s move an “invasion.” The Biden administration has insisted that it uses sanctions as leverage and is trying to stave off a full-blown invasion.

However on Tuesday, the administration admitted that Putin’s move constitutes an “invasion”, the red line Biden said would result in severe sanctions on Moscow, Daily Mail reported.

Liz Harrington, Trump’s spokesperson, tweeted a screenshot of the 45th President’s email statement:

In a second statement, Trump said, “In 2018, I told Germany not to do the gas pipeline deal with Russia. The Fake News Media will never tell you, so I will!”

He included a link to a 2018 article from RT, titled: Trump slams Germany over Russian gas pipeline, calling it ‘a horrible mistake’.
