The 45th US President Donald Trump has warned that the world is facing a greater threat from “nuclear warming” due to the possibility of atomic war than from global warming. In an exclusive interview with a Spanish-American outlet, Trump criticized the current White House administration, saying that “everything is horrible” both in the US and around the world. He specifically mentioned the situation in Ukraine and Israel and the state of the US economy.
Trump, who previously served as US president from 2017 to 2021, expressed concern about the possibility of World War Three and blamed his successor, Joe Biden, for the current state of affairs. He described Biden as an incompetent leader who is incapable of addressing critical issues and as possibly “negotiating for us” with other world leaders such as Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.
In addition to highlighting concerns about nuclear warfare, Trump also criticized Biden’s leadership in dealing with international relations, including the ongoing war in Gaza and the conflicts with Russia and China. He questioned Biden’s ability to effectively negotiate with other world leaders, which he sees as a significant risk to the United States and its allies.
Trump’s comments come at a time of heightened tensions between the US, Russia, and China, and amid fears of potential nuclear threats from multiple nations. Russia recently downgraded its participation in the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) and suspended the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with the US. This has been part of an ongoing deterioration of relations between the US and Russia, marked by the US withdrawal from major arms control treaties during the Trump administration and subsequent tensions during Biden’s presidency.
The Trump White House had previously withdrawn from major Cold War arms control treaties, citing alleged Russian violations, while also hesitating to extend the New START treaty. The Biden administration extended the New START treaty through 2026 but rejected Russia’s comprehensive security proposal in late 2021, contributing to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Overall, Trump’s interview reflects his deep concerns about the current state of international affairs and the potential risks to global security. His warnings about the threat of nuclear warfare and criticisms of the Biden administration’s handling of foreign relations add to the ongoing debates and discussions about the future of global security and the role of the US in international diplomacy and policy. The interview also serves as a reminder of the complex challenges facing world leaders and the critical importance of effective leadership in addressing these challenges.
