Trump delay of Weapons To Ukraine Enbolden Putin to Invade

by AfroWorldNews

Many experts now believed that Trump’s delay of weapons to Ukraine emboldened Putin to invade Ukraine. Despite many pleas for help and the release of arms that were already approved by both houses, Trump continued to delay weapons to Ukraine, and he instead demanded favor.

“It was Trump that undermined U.S. national security and froze military assistance to Ukraine,” retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a former National Security Council official during the Trump administration who testified at the impeachment inquiry, told ABC News on Monday. “It was Trump’s attacks on NATO and support from the far-right that encouraged Putin to believe that NATO was fragile. Trump has blood on his hands.”

On Monday, the House minority leader posted a tweet where he expressed regrets that the U.S. didn’t supply Ukraine with weapons earlier and suggested speeding up weapons sales to Taiwan “so they can safeguard their future against China.”
