REMINDER from Jen Psaki: Biden “was the vice president the last time Russia invaded Ukraine, this is a pattern”

President Trump oversaw one of the most peaceful eras that the United States has seen in modern history. Trump believed in achieving peace through strength and was able to build relationships with countries that the United States formerly maintained little to no diplomatic relations with. This included a historic thaw in relations between North and South Korea and helping Israel establish diplomatic ties with countries that were hostile to it in the past.
During Trump’s presidency, Russia maintained a relatively low profile on the world stage. The war in Ukraine was contained to a low-level regional conflict where Ukraine was starting to regain control over the Donbas region. Russia did not escalate the conflict, which started under President Obama in 2014, because Trump allegedly threatened extreme retaliation if they attempted a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
