Former President Donald Trump is warning that the world is on the brink of World War III and he is blaming President Joe Biden for it.
On his TruthSocial account the former president said that we are in “the most dangerous time in the history of our country” and Biden is leading us to “oblivion.”
“World War III is looming, like never before, in the very dark and murky background. ‘Leadership’ is solely responsible for this unprecedented danger to the USA, and likewise, the World. HOPELESS JOE BIDEN IS LEADING US INTO OBLIVION!!!” he said.
It comes as China made a proposal for peace between Russia and Ukraine that President Biden has snubbed.
China called for a comprehensive ceasefire in Ukraine on Friday and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he was open to considering parts of a 12-point peace plan put forward by Beijing.
On the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Moscow’s ally China urged both sides to agree to a gradual de-escalation, warned against the use of nuclear weapons and said conflict benefited no one.
The plan, set out in a foreign ministry paper, was largely a reiteration of China’s line since Russia launched what it calls its “special military operation” on Feb. 24 last year.
“All parties must stay rational and exercise restraint, avoid fanning the flames and aggravating tensions, and prevent the crisis from deteriorating further or even spiraling out of control,” China said.
“Nuclear weapons must not be used and nuclear wars must not be fought,” it said. “We oppose development, use of biological and chemical weapons by any country under any circumstances.”
But NATO dismissed the proposal.
“China doesn’t have much credibility because they have not been able to condemn the illegal invasion of Ukraine,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said.
“Putin’s applauding it, so how could it be any good?” President Biden said to ABC News.
“I’ve seen nothing in the plan that would indicate that there is something that would be beneficial to anyone other than Russia, if the Chinese plan were followed,” he said.
Former President Trump’s comments come after he visited the site of the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio as President Biden visited Ukraine.
Trump arrived to provide aid in the aftermath of a train derailment and personally helped with the delivery of numerous truckloads of bottled water to the area. According to John Rourke, CEO of Blue Line Moving, the company transported a total of 13 pallets of water pallets to East Palestine to assist the small town.
Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung told Breitbart News, “President Trump is meeting with the citizens of East Palestine, and he will never forget them and what they are going through. Contrast that with Biden and the federal government, who have failed them from the beginning.”
“Cleanup crews ended up igniting five train cars to get rid of toxic chemicals in a controlled environment, which created a menacing plume of thick smoke that resembled a mushroom cloud. Images of the controlled detonation were later circulated on social media, sparking concerns around the nation. The incident resulted in about half of the town’s population being ordered to evacuate. While residents have since been told they are allowed to return to their homes, many are still concerned and want answers — but Biden and Buttigieg are nowhere to be found,” Breitbart added.
Several local residents also showed up before Trump’s official arrival and made it clear they are fed up with Biden.

Last week, Trump declared that he would visit the site of the train disaster in East Palestine, Ohio where toxic chemicals were spilled in the land and water after a train derailment, Fox News reported.
“A source familiar with the former president’s plans told Fox News that Trump plans to travel to East Palestine on Wednesday to meet with members of the community,” the report said of his rumored trip next week.
“The source said Trump, who announced his 2024 presidential campaign in November, has a strong relationship with the people of Ohio,” it said.
