Former US President Donald Trump praised Russian President Vladimir Putin as “smart”, criticizing Western leaders for whom he considered “too stupid”, in a speech he delivered on Saturday evening at the major annual gathering of American conservatives in Orlando, Florida. “The problem is not that Putin is smart, Because of course he is smart,” adding: “The real problem is that our leaders are very stupid,” adding that the “weakness” left by Democratic President Joe Biden is the reason for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The former president continued his 86-minute speech, saying: “As everyone understands, This horrific disaster would never have happened had our elections not been rigged.” Trump left the public in doubt about his desire to take on Biden personally for the presidency, but hinted at a potential candidacy in 2024 by saying, “We did it twice and we will do it again.” Presenting his defeat in 2020 as a victory.
