Trump, in U-turn on Putin, Condemns Atrocities, Salutes Zelenskyy's Courage

Former President Donald Trump headlined the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday night in his home state of Florida, and his conference focused on bashing Democrats as a war rages between Russian and Ukraine.

Trump trumpeted his own one-term presidency, saying Russia had attacked no other countries during his administration. Trump said he brought peace, and that powers like Russia stood down while he was at the helm during this century.

"Under Bush, Russia invaded Georgia; under Obama, Russia took Crimea; under Biden, Russia invaded Ukraine," Trump said. "I stand as the only president of the 21st century on whose watch Russia did not invade another country."

  1. In the 1990s, when the Soviet Union was collapsing, I remember Rav Ovadiah Yosef ztl made the psak that Jews can leave even if it means travelling on Shabbat, because of the safek sakkanat nefesh. Not everybody agreed with him, I think even the Lubavitcher rebbe disagreed. Now it is clear that it was the correct view to take back then.
