In an announcement published Tuesday, former President Donald Trump pledged to “clean house of all of the warmongers and America’s last globalists,” asserting that the Obama administration was responsible for the Maidan Uprising that took place in Ukraine in 2014.
“World War III has never been closer than it is right now,” Trump warned.
“We need to clean house of all of the warmongers and America’s last globalists in the deep state, the Pentagon, the State Department, and the national security industrial complex.”
Trump said that one of the reasons he “was the only president in generations” to not start a new war was because he was the only commander-in-chief “who rejected the catastrophic advice of many of Washington’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.”
“For decades, we’ve had the very same people, such as Victoria Nuland and many others just like her, obsessed with pushing Ukraine toward NATO, not to mention the State Department support for uprisings in Ukraine,” explained Trump.
The former president added that pro-war neoconservatives and neoliberals such as Nuland “have been seeking confrontation for a long time, much like the case in Iraq and other parts of the world.”
He added, “And now, we’re teetering on the brink of World War III.”
The former president clarified that “none of this excuses in any way the outrageous and horrible invasion of Ukraine one year ago,” adding that it “would have never happened if I was your president, not even a little chance.”
He then called out those whose interests appear to lie outside of the United States, proclaiming, “here in America, we need to get rid of the corrupt globalist establishment that has botched every major foreign policy decision for decades, and that includes President Biden, whose own people said he’s never made a good decision when it comes to looking at other countries and looking at wars.”
Trump appeared to attack Joe Biden for his leadership, explaining that the U.S. did not find itself involved with new military conflicts during his presidency as “other countries respected us,” before adding, “They didn’t want to mess around with the United States and now they’re laughing at us.”

As Trump noted in the above video, he took time during his trip to buy and donate food and water for first responders as well as local residents.
