'Sleepy Son-of-a-B**ch': Trump Accuses Biden of Killing 'the American Dream'

Earlier this month, Donald Trump hit out at Joe Biden's "weakness" regarding Russia and his alleged inability to tackle the Ukraine crisis. Trump also claimed that Biden is "crawling around the globe on his knees" to find alternative oil supply sources after the US banned all energy imports from Russia over its special military op in Ukraine.
Ex-POTUS Donald Trump has launched yet another attack on US President Joe Biden, accusing the latter of destroying "the American dream" within a year.
Speaking at a "Save America" rally of his supporters in Commerce, Georgia, on Saturday, the 45th American president berated the Biden administration over the Ukraine crisis, high inflation, and soaring gasoline prices, slamming at some point of his speech NBC journo Chuck Todd as a "sleepy son­-of-a-b**ch".
Trump has repeatedly described Todd, moderator of NBC News's Meet the Press programme, as “sleepy”, also slamming NBC as “fake” news channel. Trump has had a longstanding feud with NBC News and Todd, whom he considered to be biased against his administration. The 45th president first used the word in April 2017, when he questioned why Todd and NBC News were not covering his claim that the Obama administration illegally spied on his campaign.
"When will Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd and NBC News start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?" Trump tweeted at the time. It remains unclear why the former US president singled out the moniker during the Commerce rally.

"You could take the five worst presidents in American history and put them together and they would not have done the damage Joe Biden has done in just 15 months. In just over a year he has managed to kill, literally kill the American dream. But do not lose hope because with the right leadership America will be back greater, stronger and more powerful than ever before", Trump argued on Saturday.

He then went further by asserting that the US president "has been one train wreck after another" and accusing Biden of "disgracing" the nation with "his humiliating surrender in Afghanistan" and skyrocketing inflation, which is the "highest in over 40 years".
Trump also pointed the finger at Biden over soaring gas prices, the migration gridlock, and Russia's ongoing special military operation in Ukraine.

"Gas prices are the highest in history. Think of that. And we had them below $2 a gallon. Think of that, and now it's going up to $5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. How high can you count? Our borders are completely demolished. Bloodthirsty criminals are laying waste to our Democrat-run cities. There were more COVID deaths in 2021 that were in 2020 with all the work we did. Who would have believed that? And just when you thought it couldn't get worse, Joe Biden totally failed to deter Russia's disgraceful invasion of Ukraine", the ex-POTUS stated.

Trump argued that "[the] Ukraine [crisis] would've never happened" had he been president of the US now. According to him, America currently has "a president that has no idea what the hell he's doing and has no idea even where he is. The fake news, they're trying to say he's acting brilliantly […]".
The remarks followed the 45th president accusing Biden of failing to tackle Russia's special military operation in Ukraine due to Washington's concern over Moscow's nuclear potential.
He told a rally of his supporters in Florida last week that POTUS is now afraid of attacking a "nuclear power", in an apparent reference to Russia, and yet again trotting out his claim that on his watch, the Ukraine crisis would have never taken place, alleging that Moscow's special operation came after Russian President Vladimir Putin allegedly saw Washington's "weakness".
"It was my personality that kept us out of war. I was the only president in four decades who did not get America into any conflicts, except I totally defeated ISIS [Daesh*]", the former US president claimed.

Russia's Special Op in Ukraine

Moscow's special operation, which has been underway since 24 February, was launched after the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR) appealed for help in defending themselves against Kiev's forces.
Russia said that the goal of the operation is to demilitarise and de-Nazify Ukraine and that only the nation's military infrastructure is being targeted.
The Kremlin has repeatedly stressed that it has no plans to occupy Ukraine. According to President Putin, the operation's goal is to protect the people of Donbass, "who have been subjected to abuse, genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years".
