MOSCOW, September 30 – Novosti. Former US President Donald Trump’s offer to mediate talks between Russia and Ukraine has baffled the White House, writes The American Thinker columnist Olivia Murray.
The other day, the ex-head of state published a post on his own social network Truth Social with a proposal to lead negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv in order to resolve the crisis.
“With just one short post <…> Trump has cornered the political establishment,” Murray wrote.
She added that at first glance, the ex-president’s proposal looks like trolling. But she drew attention to the refusal of left-wing politicians from diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis.

“He just gave them another opportunity to goof off – and we will only benefit from this,” the author wrote.
Murray also called Trump’s ability to troll “political witchcraft” and noted that he framed his proposal in the form of a question.
“Now the ball is on their side. It is up to them, the warmongers from Congress and the White House, to decide: to refuse the help of a person with world experience <…> and go against their own legend, or to agree to a truce and ease global stress,” summed up she is.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years.” The ultimate goal of the special military operation, according to the Russian leader, is the liberation of Donbass and the creation of conditions that guarantee the security of Russia itself.
At the end of September, referendums were held in the liberated territories of the LPR , DPR , Kherson and Zaporozhye regions , in which the absolute majority of voters voted in favor of joining Russia. On Friday, September 30, in Moscow, Vladimir Putin and the heads of these regions signed agreements on their accession to Russia.
