Former President Donald Trump appeared on “Hannity” for an exclusive interview Wednesday night — and what he said stunned the Fox News star.
His appearance came on the heels of President Joe Biden’s meeting with Vladimir Putin.

And what Trump said Biden blew the entire summit.
The ex-president covered a range of subjects in the wide-ranging interview with Sean Hannity. The talk covered the rising power from China to the economy of the United States — but nothing was more surprising than his comments on Biden.
Trump said he wanted to see Joe “do well.”
“I want him to do well,” the 45th president told Hannity. “I want him to go out and do well. I hope he has no problems.”
Despite the former president’s animosity toward the results of the November election, Trump insists he still very much wants to see Biden succeed for the sake of the country.
He commented on Biden’s performance in the U.S.-Russia Summit, which critics have noted was filled with blunders by Biden.

Trump declared that in the end, it was a very good day for Russia and Putin… not the United States.
He said Biden got nothing for America in return.
“We didn’t get anything,” he explained. “We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing. We gave up something that is unbelievably valuable.”
What Trump is referring to that the U.S. “gave up,” is the gas pipeline called Nord Stream 2. It’s a controversial, Russia-friendly project that leaves Germany largely dependent on energy from Russia.
According to the New York Post, “lawmakers from both parties consider Nord Stream 2 a security risk that undermines NATO and American interests… ” In the past, Trump blocked the pipeline from happening.

But Biden has since allowed the pipeline to be completed.
“I stopped the pipeline,” Trump explained. “Nord Stream , and that pipeline was stopped. It was given back and nothing was gotten for it.”
