In the more than 90-minute speech, Mr Trump claimed Mr Biden and the radical left were “trying to replace American democracy with woke tyranny”.
While calling the situation in Ukraine “a catastrophic disaster”, Mr Trump went on to attack Democrats for rushing defend the country’s borders “while they’re destroying our own borders” with failed immigration policies.
In a shift from his earlier praise of Mr Putin’s assault on Ukraine as “genius”, he condemned Moscow’s all-out attack on Ukraine as “appalling”.
However he defended his previous comments. “The problem is not that Putin is smart, which, of course, he’s smart,” Mr Trump said.
“The real problem is that our leaders are dumb,” he said, adding that the leaders of Nato member states were “all delinquent”
He struck an uncharacteristically empathetic tone as he expressed sympathy for Ukraine saying: “We are praying for the proud people of Ukraine. God bless them all”.
