US First Lady Jill Biden is scheduled to visit Romania and Slovakia this week to meet refugees from Ukraine, while former President Donald Trump said the “weakness” and “incompetence” of his successor Joe Biden made possible the military invasion of Russia.
“Jill Biden will travel to Romania and Slovakia this week to support displaced Ukrainian families,” CNN reported, citing a White House statement.
The station highlighted that President Biden’s wife will travel to Romania next Thursday and two days later, on Saturday, to Slovakia.
“Biden will also meet during the trip with US military personnel stationed abroad, as well as senior government officials from both countries,” the Russian news agency Sputnik reported.
Meanwhile, Trump (2017-2021) declared yesterday that the “weakness” and “incompetence” of his successor and political opponent made Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine possible.
“Biden showed weakness and incompetence on the Ukraine situation,” Trump told a rally of his supporters in Nebraska and broadcast on local television.
In Trump’s opinion, this would not have happened if he were still the president of the United States, an issue that was frustrated because in the 2020 elections he did not win re-election.
“Biden turned Afghanistan into something that no one could think about, and when (Russian President Vladimir) Putin saw it, he decided it was time to introduce troops (into Ukraine). I am 100 percent sure that would not happen during my government,” Trump said.
Yesterday, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, second in line of presidential succession after Vice President Kamala Harris, visited Ukraine and met with President Volodimir Zelensky.
Pelosi thus became the highest-ranking official from her country to visit the capital, kyiv.
The Ukrainian president and the US legislator announced the progressive return of the diplomatic presence of the American giant in Ukraine and additional direct and indirect aid of more than 700 million dollars from the Biden government.
