(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) President Donald Trump touted his record of containing Russia, China, and the Taliban in his CPAC speech on Saturday.
Trump pointed out a startling fact.
“I was the only president where Russia didn’t take over a country during my term,” he said.
He explained his success.
“I got along with Vladimir Putin very well,” he said. “I said Moscow would be hit hard.”
Trump explained why he thought his threats were taken seriously.
“He [Putin] probably didn’t believe it,” he said. “But he believed that 10%.”
“He probably thought, I don’t believe him, but there’s a 10% chance. You never know. It’s true.”
Trump then produced evidence for his claim.
“But with Bush, they invaded Georgia, right?” he said. “With Obama, they took Crimea.”
Trump pointed out that things have gotten especially bad with Biden.
“With Biden, they tried to take everything,” he said. “And he won’t even know.”
Trump claimed that his mad-man method also worked on China with president Xi Jinping.
“President Xi knew it too,” he said. “Right now, China has its eyes strongly focused on Taiwan, and we could have a nuclear armed event.”
Trump claimed he even made the Taliban behave.
“I talked to Abul, the leader of Afghanistan, and I got a lot of criticism,” he said. “They said he’s talking to the leader of the Taliban.”
Trump said he did so to protect American soldiers.
“I don’t want to talk to the mothers and fathers who I would speak to a lot,” he said. “I don’t want to talk to them and tell them their son was shot through the head.”
“So I went to Abdul, I went up to them I said, Abdul, don’t kill any more of our soldiers because if you kill our soldiers we are going to hit you harder than any country has ever been hit in the history of the world.”
Trump then said that he disturbed the leader of the Taliban by sending him a picture of his house.
He reiterated that these actors did not misbehave during his presidency. China didn’t threaten Taiwan, Russia didn’t invade the Ukraine, and the Taliban did not blow-up American military movements.
“They knew that they couldn’t do it.”
