Tens of thousands of people are likely dying right now, defending their homeland, Ukraine, from a brutal, murderous attack, yet Trump is still blaming it, not on the neo-fascist dictator Putin whom he greatly admires and envies, but on his lost election of 2020. Trump said that Putin’s attack on Ukraine was “genius”. If he can’t say anything to help in the current situation, can he not just STFU and let it rest? Why does everything always have to be about him?
Here's Donald Trump on Fox News saying Russia's invasion of Ukraine "all happened because of a rigged election."
Laura Ingraham then briefly cuts him off to air the Ukrainian envoy's speech. (Of course, she then pulled out of the speech to go back to Trump.) pic.twitter.com/7ZfSp7icQ1

There’s a long tradition in the US, that a former president should not try to undermine a sitting president during a crisis. For Trump to do so is just incredibly petty and small-minded, but that seems to be just who Trump is.
