President Joe Biden is discovering a harsh lesson. The president tweeted two years to the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin gave the order for “peacekeeping forces” to march into Ukraine, implying Putin was afraid of him rather than President Donald Trump, whom he was running against.
“Vladimir Putin does not want me to be President,” he tweeted on February 21, 2020. “He doesn’t want me to be our nominee,” If you’re wondering why it’s because I’m the only person in this field who’s ever faced him

Republicans on Twitter took the opportunity to remind Joe of this tweet. “It was exactly two years ago today. “Look at this fool,” Monica Crowley, a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, stated. Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted, “How’s this tweet aging?” “What were you saying?” Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, a Republican, stated with a sly grin.
“Always remember that the DC media pushed this narrative. @maggieNYT led the way with this phony partisan message. Putin didn’t invade Ukraine when Trump was President. Putin did it twice – when Obama and Biden were in charge,” Richard Grenell, former Director of National Intelligence, stated.
CBS News claimed on February 20 that the US has intelligence indicating that Russian forces have been given orders to attack Ukraine.
“The President was very clear that he is convinced by U.S. intelligence that this invasion will happen, that President Putin decided to do it,” Margaret Brennan CBS News “Face The Nation” Anchor Margaret Brennan said to CBS News correspondent David Martin. “How was he that certain?”
“Because the intelligence says that Russian troops have actually received orders now, to proceed with the invasion,” he answered. “So not only are they moving up closer and closer to the border into these attack positions, but the commanders on the ground are making specific plans for how they would maneuver in their sector of the battlefield.”
“They’re doing everything that American commanders would do once they got the order to proceed,” He stated. According to Reuters, the US embassy in Russia has warned Americans to have an evacuation plan in place because to a warning from Moscow.
“According to media sources, there have been threats of attacks against shopping centers, railway and metro stations, and other public gathering places in major urban areas, including Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as in areas of heightened tension along the Russian border with Ukraine,” In a notice to US citizens, the embassy stated.
Citizens were urged to “Monitor local and international media for updates avoid crowds, notify friends and family of your safety, be aware of your surroundings, stay alert in locations frequented by tourists/Westerners, review your personal security plans, carry proper identification, including a U.S. passport with a current Russian visa and have evacuation plans that do not rely on U.S. government assistance.”
