Say what you want about Donald Trump — and God knows that’s happened from all sides from the moment he and Melania rode down the escalator in Trump Tower in June 2015 to announce his candidacy — but there ain’t nobody who trolls like “The Donald.”

Such was the case on Thursday when the former president issued a statement in which he offered some advice to the current occupant of the White House prior to the latter’s upcoming summit with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.

Biden hopes to amplify both threats by speaking for U.S. allies as well, and to back Putin down from these provocations. “The whole goal is to have [Putin] come away saying, ‘The Americans are onto us and have us encircled,’” the official says.

Got it. Lemme know how that all works out, Joe.

Anyway, with Biden
