    Trump would also be cranking up sanctions on China and other countries supporting Russia. India would not be so dismissive of the USA.

    Pompeo would not be blinking like Blinken.

    All this comes at the heals of Biden's failure in Afghanistan that should never have happened.

    Your question should be if Putin would have ever dared to start this under Trump.
    Let's go Brandon !!!

    Some interesting points but what specific sanctions could Trump have taken that are different than the sanctions that have not stopped Russia?

    Also , I see Trump as fairly hands off in terms of controlling other countries, which was one of the things I liked about him.

    Having said that you made some interesting points as I said. I had not thought about exporting large amounts of oil. only about the energy independence Biden just gave away.

    Putin doesn't invade Ukraine if Biden doesn't bungle the Afghanistan withdrawal. Putin decided America is a nation of cowards and nothing bad would happen if he invaded.
    I am the President-Elect of the United States.

    That's a leap. Certainly the Biden admin is not much to behold but I think short of military action there was no stop to this.

    Appearing strong could have been enough.

    Many think the utterly chaotic way Joe* left Afghanistan was the green light for Putin to start his war with Ukraine.

    That thought may have worried Putin enough to not jump.
