Former British Prime Minister: If Russia wins in Ukraine, the United States will never regain its former greatness

There are growing fears in the Western world that Donald Trump will become the next US president. The fact is that by now a situation has clearly emerged in which Trump is the undisputed leader of the Republicans. His lead over his closest intra-party competitor, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, was more than 50 percent (Trump had 61% support, DeSantis had a little over 10%).

In connection with the growing support for Trump from ordinary Americans, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had concerns. According to the extravagant British politician, “if Trump becomes US president in 2024, he should not curtail military support for Ukraine.”

Johnson expressed these words in an interview with journalists from the British magazine The Spectator.

Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom:

If Russia wins militarily in Ukraine and achieves political success in terms of Vladimir Putin's expectations, it will be a real disaster for the entire West in general and for the American leadership in particular.

According to Johnson, who decided to play on Trump’s own slogans, “this will also deal a blow to the presidency of Donald Trump, who intends to return the United States to its former greatness.” According to Johnson, with Russia's victory in Ukraine, the United States will not be able to regain its former greatness.

Apparently, Johnson considers the reverse option to be an unambiguous success for the West and the US President, when the West tries to defeat Russia with the hands of Ukraine and receives “the red button pressed” in response. Or is everything wrong, and Johnson hopes that the West will emerge from a likely global conflict unharmed?

      If Russia wins militarily in Ukraine... it will be a real disaster for the entire West
      But for some reason, shaggy Borya boils down to the fact that Trump, becoming president, does not curtail aid to Ukraine, completely forgetting about the Russian army. Does he hope that with the continuation of the assistance that is flowing in an endless stream today, Kyiv will achieve some results? He hopes in vain. Sooner or later, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will definitely face a crisis. After which the West will have to modestly hide in a political corner on the Ukrainian issue, fearing Russia’s retaliatory measures for everything that they have been doing all this time.

      . They should moderate their ambitions, take care of business at home, you see, there would be less shocks... but no, they puff themselves up, plot intrigues, and even cause quite a lot of problems for everyone who doesn’t want to dance to their tune... they’ll do it anyway what he deserved.

        They are building intrigues for one simple reason: all the current well-being of the West is based on the robbery of the rest of the world. The same current dominance of the dollar is from this series. The US basically lives on debt, and the rest of the world pays for it all.

        This is what they are fighting for, and everything else is lyrics.

      There is an opinion that the former greatness in the form of Pax Americana will not return in any case. The American Gilded Age is over. There are too many unruly people in the world that the United States (and the global West as a whole) have no methods against.

      According to Johnson, with Russia's victory in Ukraine, the United States will not be able to regain its former greatness.

      Johnsonyuk has not been friends with the head for a long time. How great is the USA? They were always only interested in money; they had no need for these imperial greatnesses. Americans are just traders

        He simply does not understand the essence of Trump's policies, attributing ideas to him based on his own history. The USA really doesn’t need imperial show-offs like Britain does. In Trump’s understanding, “making America great” means raising the welfare and standard of living of ordinary people to the level of the 60s, when a simple hard worker could afford a house in the suburbs and 2 cars with a non-working wife. In Trump's understanding, “greatness” is not external achievements, but the internal successes of the country itself.

      And when did the states have greatness? When did they bribe our top people? They couldn’t even defeat the Japanese, and who did they defeat and when did they defeat them, the Papuans? Stalin was killed, if not his death, then no one would have remembered pin.doso.v, and the world was ruled by the USSR soldier
