In an attempt to smear President Trump as an idiot, Fiona Hill accidentally admits that Putin intentionally waited on Trump to leave office for his invasion of Ukraine because he thought it would go better and he wanted someone more predictable in the Oval Office.
Via Yahoo News:
Russian President Vladimir Putin often became frustrated with President Donald Trump over his lack of knowledge on geopolitical issues, Fiona Hill said, adding that this played into Moscow’s decision on the timing of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
One of the reasons Putin invaded Ukraine with President Joe Biden in the White House was that he expected the US to “sue for peace” and thought it would be better to deal with Biden than trying to negotiate with someone like Trump, whom the Russian leader had “to explain everything to all the time,” Hill, who served as the top Russia advisor on the National Security Council under Trump, said Tuesday at a Chicago Council on Global Affairs event.
“He thought that somebody like Biden — who’s a transatlanticist, who knows all about NATO, who actually knows where Ukraine is, and actually knows something about the history, and is very steeped in international affairs — would be the right person to engage with,” Hill said.
“You could see that he got frustrated many times with President Trump because he had to keep explaining things, and Putin doesn’t like to do that,” Hill said, adding: “Even though he loves to be able to spin his own version of events, he wants to have predictability in the person that he’s engaging with.”
Fiona Hill wants you to believe Putin had more respect for Biden and that’s why he waited, but that sounds like complete Never Trumper garbage. I don’t believe that for a second.
Putin knew Trump wasn’t a coward or a pushover and Hill admits in her writings that Trump was certainly not predictable. That unpredictability is why Putin waited until Biden was in the Oval Office before launching his plans to invade Ukraine. He knew he could roll right over Biden and do whatever he wanted and that’s exactly what has played out.
Not to mention Trump would have kept the sanctions on Putin’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline and that would have also prevented him from completing it so that he could begin his invasion. Biden dumped them early on and Ukraine has had to pay the prices, just as Putin planned.
