President Biden’s previous comments on what could “happen in Ukraine” under former President Trump are resurfacing amid the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

Back in 2019, then-candidate Biden took a dig at Trump while speaking at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Women’s Leadership Forum Conference, warning the audience against voting to re-elect Trump by suggesting a hypothetical fall of Ukraine.

“It’s going to take a hell of a lot of work to make up for all the damage he’s done internationally and nationally,” Biden said. “His network of thugs and co-conspirators are going to continue to try to undermine our democracy in the meantime.”

“Imagine what he can do in another year,” Biden continued. “Imagine what can happen to Ukraine.”
