Trump: Obama May Overplay Hand in Ukraine to Show He's 'All Man'

Donald Trump said he fears that because President Barack Obama has shown weakness on the world stage in foreign policy efforts, he would now overplay his hand with Russia over the Ukraine "to show that he's all man."

Obama "is not a respected man. The thing I have the most concern about is that he's being so lambasted for not being respected, and for being a joke, that he'll do something really stupid to show that he's all man. And that's a real problem," the real-estate and entertainment mogul told "Fox & Friends" on Monday.

If Russia respected the United States, Trump maintained, they would not have mobilized forces into Ukraine after indicating they would not.

"A few days ago, they told [U.S. Secretary of State John] Kerry ... 'We will not go into Ukraine,'" Trump said. "Twenty minutes later, they went in. It's unbelievable."

Russian President Vladimir Putin was a "smart, calculating guy," Trump said, who was in a "different league" due to his "street smarts or intelligence." He suggested the best response to the Russian aggression into Ukraine was through economic measures.

"Russia is not strong economically. We could do a lot of different things to really do numbers on them if we wanted to," he said.

Trump suggested Russia was "not concerned with our leader," evidenced by Obama's recent foreign policy decisions, including backtracking on the "red line" he originally drew with the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.

In Iraq, after the United States spent "$2 trillion and thousands of lives," Trump said it looked like Iraq would be taken over by Iran. In Afghanistan, he said Afghan President Hamid Karzai treated Obama "like a child."

"We have no leadership whatsoever," Trump said.
