Trump Offers To Broker Peace Deal Between Russia And Ukraine


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former President Donald Trump is willing to help President Joe Biden and his administration as the situation between Russia and Ukraine get more heated.

On Wednesday the former president commented on his Truth Social account that he would be willing to head a team to broker a peace deal.

“Everyone is talking about the big hurricane barreling into Florida, as they should be, but perhaps a far more important event in the longer term was the announcement that the Nord Stream I & II Pipelines out of Russia (which I brought to the World’s attention as President when I explained how crippling reliance on it could be for Germany and other parts of Europe. Everybody laughed at the time, but they are not laughing anymore!) has been SABOTAGED. This could lead to major escalation, or War!” the former president said.


“U.S. ‘Leadership’ should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines. This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet. The Russia/Ukraine catastrophe should NEVER have happened, and would definitely not have happened if I were President. Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup. Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???” he said.


In another tweet he shared a video of President Biden saying that they would make certain the Nord Stream pipelines were stopped if Russia invaded Ukraine and he captioned it “Wow, what a statement. World War III anyone?”

In the video President Biden was addressing a reporter’s question about the pipelines.


“If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it,” the president said in February.

“But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany’s control?” the reporter said.

“I promise you, we will be able to do that,” he said.

It came after reports that the Nord Stream pipelines were sabotaged.

The New York Times reported.

The leaks in the Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea resulted from “a deliberate act,” the European Union’s top diplomat said on Wednesday, joining a growing chorus of European leaders in speaking of sabotage.

Three separate leaks that were first discovered on Monday in the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines from Russia to Germany are “not a coincidence and affect us all,” Josep Borrell Fontelles, the E.U. high representative for foreign affairs and security, said in a statement on Wednesday.

Brussels would support an investigation, he added, and would “take further steps to increase our resilience in energy security.”


European officials have been deeply unsettled by the ruptures in the pipelines, which will not immediately affect Europe’s energy supply, but underscored the vulnerability of the continent’s energy infrastructure. Top Polish and Ukrainian leaders blamed Moscow for the leaks, while Russian state media suggested U.S. or Ukrainian involvement.

“Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response,” Mr. Borrell said. The comments echoed a warning posted on Twitter on Tuesday night by Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the E.U. executive arm, calling the leaks “sabotage action,” adding that it was “paramount” to conduct an investigation. The European Union lacks formal investigative powers, but officials said that it would support inquiries conducted by national authorities.

On Thursday the United States Embassy in Russia warned American citizens to leave Russia or risk being conscripted into the war.

“On September 21, the Russian government began a mobilization of its citizens to the armed forces in support of its invasion of Ukraine.  Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ U.S. citizenship, deny their access to U.S. consular assistance, prevent their departure from Russia, and conscript dual nationals for military service.,” the embassy said.

“Commercial flight options are extremely limited at present and are often unavailable on short notice.  Overland routes by car and bus are still open.  If you wish to depart Russia, you should make independent arrangements as soon as possible.  The U.S. Embassy has severe limitations on its ability to assist U.S. citizens, and conditions, including transportation options, may suddenly become even more limited,” it said.

“U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia and those residing or traveling in Russia should depart Russia immediately while limited commercial travel options remain.  The Department of State provides information on commercial travel on the Information for U.S. Citizens in Russia – Travel Options Out of Russia page on  This site also provides information on requirements for entering neighboring countries, procedures for travel on expired U.S. passports in some circumstances, and visa requirements for families with American and Russian citizen family members.

“We remind U.S. citizens that the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression is not guaranteed in Russia.  Avoid all political or social protests and do not photograph security personnel at these events.  Russian authorities have arrested U.S. citizens who have participated in demonstrations,” it said.
