Former President Donald Trump jokes that the United States should send F-22 fighter jets with Chinese flags to “bomb the shit” out of Russia to inspire a hot war between both countries.
Speaking to top Republican National Committee (RNC) donors at a retreat in New Orleans, the former president prompted scores of laughter when he suggested that the U.S. bomb Russia and blame it on another country.
“And then we say, ‘China did it,’” Trump said, according to an unidentified source for CBS News. “Then they start fighting with each other, and we sit back and watch.”
The former president also scolded his successor, Joe Biden, for his handling of Russia.
“We have to have Biden stop saying that — and this is for everyone to hear — that we will not attack Russia ever because they are a nuclear power, right?” Trump said. “You know who is saying this? Okay, whether it’s fact or fiction, ‘We will not attack Russia. You see, they are a nuclear power.’ Oh, thanks for telling us.”
President Trump increased his anti-Russia rhetoric last week after the media accused him of being a Putin apologist for calling him “smart” and “pretty savvy” as the invasion got underway. He later referred to Russia’s invasion as “a Holocaust” when discussing the conflict with Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business while pleading with Moscow to “stop killing these people.”
