Trump Blasts Obama Admin., ‘Warmongering Globalists’ for Supporting Coup in Ukraine

'We’re now teetering on the brink of World War 3. A lot of people don’t see it, but I see it. And I’ve been right about a lot of things...'

(Ken Silva, Headline USAFormer President Donald Trump released an anti-war message on Tuesday that blasted the Obama administration for supporting the 2014 coup in Ukraine, which ousted the country’s pro-Russia government and set the stage for the war raging today.

“For decades, we’ve had the very same people such as [State Department official] Victoria Nuland and many others just like her, obsessed with pushing Ukraine toward NATO—not to mention the State Department’s support for uprisings in Ukraine,” Trump said in a video statement.

The U.S. government’s involvement in the 2014 is well documented, most notably in a leaked phone call between Nuland and then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt—in which the two officials discussed who Ukraine’s next government should be in the wake of the pro-Russian government’s ouster.

However, the subject has been a political third rail for both sides of the aisle.

For instance, when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., made similar statements last March, she was met with a barrage of “fact-checkers” accusing her of spreading Russian disinformation.

This didn’t stop Trump from speaking the truth on Tuesday, calling out in particular Nuland, who now occupies a higher position in the State Department than she did in 2014.

Trump called for Nuland and other anti-Russia war hawks to be removed from government before they spark another world war.

“World War 3 has never been closer than it is now. We need to clear house,” he said.

“One of the reasons I was the only presidents in generations who didn’t start a war is that I was the only president who rejected the catastrophic advice of many of the country’s generals, bureaucrats and the so-called diplomats who only know how to get us into conflict, but they don’t know how to get us out.”

Trump’s statement comes on the same day as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s announcement that Moscow suspended Moscow’s participation in the last remaining nuclear arms control pact with the United States.

Trump stressed that the U.S.’s actions don’t excuse Putin’s invasion, but he also reiterated the need to end the conflict and avoid World War 3—issuing his warning in classic Trump fashion.

“We’re now teetering on the brink of World War 3. A lot of people don’t see it, but I see it. And I’ve been right about a lot of things,” he said.

“They all say, ‘Trump’s been right about everything.’”
