Biden just can’t stop surprising us.
As you likely already know, President Biden recently traded U.S. women’s basketball star Brittney Griner for none other than Russian arms trafficker and terrorist Viktor Bout who is ominously known as “The Merchant of Death.”
Biden also decided to leave U.S. Marine veteran Paul Whelan, who is imprisoned in Russia as well, out of the deal and asked for just Griner instead.
It doesn’t take a historian or lawmaker to know that was a bad decision however now former President Donald Trump has reacted to the news about the trade and he didn’t hold back telling Biden how he felt.
According to Newsmax, Trump condemned Biden’s actions and said, “What kind of a deal is it to swap Brittney Griner, a basketball player who openly hates our country, for the man known as ‘The Merchant of Death,’ who is one of the biggest arms dealers anywhere in the World, and responsible for tens of thousands of deaths and horrific injuries.”
Trump added, “Why wasn’t former Marine Paul Whelan included in this totally one-sided transaction? He would have been let out for the asking. What a “stupid” and unpatriotic embarrassment for the USA!!!”
One thing is very clear Viktor Bout was a very dangerous and highly sought after individual for the Russians. Why did President Biden nor anyone in his administration not have the foresight or common sense to ask for both Griner and Whelan in exchange for such a dangerous terrorist?
