I may have missed it, but Trump seems to be totally silent about Putin's invasion plans in Ukraine.

Can anyone point me to trump gems pro or con about this?
(I'm being serious here, no joking)

Pres. Trump blabs to the Russians about our allies’ secrets but he knows not to make public what Putin had ordered him to do.

Trump says that Putin "Very, very strongly denies that he has any troops on the RUS/UKR border" and that we should believe him!

Heard he's talking to Putin about a high-rise deal in Ukraine.

Trump is trying hard to not circle the drain.

There's nothing about a possible invasion that Trump cares about. It has nothing to do with him at this point, so it's just a big yawner for him.

Not any comments for a while. Keeping quiet keeps all his options open (without even having to lie!!). That's a strategic thinker's take, but in Trump's case he may be keeping quiet because he is afraid to say anything.

Putin hasn’t told him what to say since he’s been, you know, busy.

I don't think so. He has been critical of Biden administrations policies so far, that have nothing to do with him. He's trying to stay politically relevant. Why be mute now?

Being critical of Biden here is a very dangerous take. If a real war breaks out, Trump can not be seen as favoring the enemy. YOU KNOW that he wants to rip Biden to pieces here, but what alternative would he suggest? All-out war? All-out appeasement? Repubs don't want either.

Trump should be like 'everyone else' and be critical of Russia. He's not even doing that. I'm kinda lumping lack of comment from Trump into his overall criticism of the Biden administration, when I probably shouldn't. Important point is he's mute towards Russia, when he shouldn't be (of course we all know why).

He cares not even a tiny spark of a bit about what Russia is doing or anything else political. If he can make money off of it, save his butt or use it to trash an enemy, he'll care about that aspect of it.

He only cares about himself.

Right, I didn’t mean to imply he really cares. But for him to continue making money, he thinks he needs to continue to be politically relevant to his base. He’s got a gig going. So he should be criticizing Russia, it’s what his base wants. But he won’t, because the Russians hold even more power over him.

Russia is his only possible source for funding. BUT, this latest stuff that's happening to him is hella serious. It's a different level. Can't wait to see him plead the 5th.

Of course he made comments:

Quote

“What’s happening with Russia and Ukraine would never have happened under the Trump administration,” Trump said in an email statement Monday. “Not even a possibility!”

But that was back around 1/24. Maybe Vlad told him to S T F U.

He apparently called in to Fox and blamed Biden:
