Donald Trump accused the President of providing Vladimir Putin with an “incentive” to start a nuclear war following comments in which Biden called for regime change in Russia.
Biden’s first remarks were made at Warsaw’s speech on Saturday. His administration was furious and retracted the unwise argument.
“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said in Poland.
A White House official promptly downplayed the comments saying Biden was simply referencing “power over his neighbors or the region” and “not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.”
Here we go again… another regime change war. Who is our target? Nuclear-armed Russia.
Biden: “For God’s sake, this man [Putin] cannot remain in power.”
Regime change is the true intent of Biden Admin’s policies, which will have catastrophic consequences for Americans and world. pic.twitter.com/iOfCbcxOxQ

Former President Donald Trump, in an interview with Newsmax, suggested Biden’s comments were dangerous and could be seen as a catalyst to start a nuclear war.
“When you put him into a corner and you talk the way they’re talking – they’re talking weak – and they’re almost giving him an incentive,” surmised Trump after being asked if Putin could end up going nuclear.
“They’re handling him very badly, in my opinion,” he added.
Trump again is correct. America requires regime change. https://t.co/jXCe0HMSkt

Other prominent leaders appeared to echo those sentiments following Biden’s comments.
“I think we must do everything to avoid the situation getting out of hand,” said French President Emmanuel Macron, who added, “I wouldn’t use these kinds of words.”
Tobias Ellwood, the chairman of the Commons Defence Select Committee and member of the British Parliament, called Biden’s remarks “unwise” and warned they could prompt escalation.
It’s for the Russian people to draw this (obvious) conclusion.
Putin /Xi (& many Russians) will now read ‘regime change’ as POTUS’ wider objective – beyond supporting Ukraine.

Biden’s Horrendous Gaffe
Senator James Risch, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, referred to Biden’s comments suggesting regime change as a “horrendous gaffe” and suggested he stick to the script going forward.
“He gave a good speech at the end, but as you pointed out already, there was a horrendous gaffe right at the end of it,” Risch said in an interview with CNN.
“I wish he would stay on script,” he added. “Whoever wrote that speech did a good job for him. But my gosh, I wish they would keep him on script.”

Maria Baronova (a Russian journalist of repute) has expressed her concern about Putin’s willingness to get nuclear.
“The problem is, I know these people very well. There is no threat from them, they kill. [a] weird silence around me, but I really think we’re on the brink of a nuclear war right now,” she said in an interview with Fox News Digital.
She added, “I’m not exaggerating.”

Putin, early on in the military invasion of Ukraine, ordered Russia’s “deterrence forces” – which wield nuclear weapons – on high alert.
He made that move due simply to “aggressive comments about our country.”
Biden’s unwise call for regime change is unlikely to deescalate the situation.
Biden, the President, retracted his comments and insisted that he wasn’t calling for regime changes.
Biden says “no” he wasn’t calling for regime change, which is a total lie.
He literally said, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power”
