Russia’s war invasion of Ukraine would never have happened if former U.S. President Donald Trump were still in office, according to Rep. Jody Hice, (R-Ga.)

In an interview with NTD, the Georgia congressman pointed towards what he called the current “weak leadership” in the White House which he said was in part to blame for the conflict.

Hice, who is a candidate in the 2022 Georgia secretary of state election, also said he believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin may well use this time of war to “take advantage” of the United States and other western nations.

“I’m not surprised from the perspective that the only reason this is happening is because we have such enormously weak leadership in the White House,” Hice said.

This would never ever, ever be happening if Trump were in the White House. And I think we all know that,” he said.

Hice’s comments come shortly after Trump himself told Fox News that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is “truly is a crime against humanity” that “never would have happened” if he were still in office.

Trump took aim at Putin, who he said has “got a very big ego,” adding that if the Russian president were to end his military invasion of Ukraine now, “it’s going to look like a big loss for him. Even if he takes a little extra territory.”

“I know him well [Putin] and this is not something that was going to happen but let’s see what happens, let’s watch,” Trump said of Putin.
