    The Facts

    • Former President Trump appeared on Fox to respond to President Biden's State of the Union address and developments in Ukraine, among other topics.

    • During the interview, Trump compared the Russian invasion of Ukraine to a 'holocaust,' but stopped short of criticizing Putin.

    The Spin

    Pro-Trump narrative

    Russia, China, and other powers are watching gleefully at the incompetent leadership of Joe Biden. The withdrawal from Afghanistan and now the failure to protect Ukraine will only pave the way for further conflicts that never would've happened if Trump were still president.

    Democratic narrative

    Disgraced former president Trump, who just last week praised Putin's moves in Ukraine as "savvy" and "genius," is now undermining the successful efforts of President Biden to galvanize our democratic allies against Russian aggression.. It's high time that the American public paid attention to the deep and troubling ties between the Kremlin and our former president.
