Putin notes differences between "outsider" Trump, "career man" Biden


Russian President Vladimir Putin shared his view of the differences between the most recent and current occupants of the White House ahead of his meeting with “career man” President Joe Biden, Washington Examiner reported.

Putin called former President Donald Trump an “extraordinary individual,” suggesting he is driven by impulse while shaping Biden up as a more predictable establishment figure.

“Well, even now, I believe that former U.S. president, Mr. Trump, is an extraordinary individual, talented individual. Otherwise, he would not have become U.S. president,” Putin told NBC. “He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn't come from the U.S. establishment. He had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it, some don’t like it, but that is a fact.”

“President Biden, of course, is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man,” Putin continued. “He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics. Just think of the number of years he spent in the senate—a different kind of person.”

“It is my great hope that, yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will not be any impulse-based movements on behalf of the sitting U.S. president,” added Putin, who acknowledged the current relationship between the U.S. and Russia is at its worst in recent years.

Putin and Biden are set to meet in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 16—an encounter that follows several cyberattacks on U.S. infrastructure suspected to have originated within Russia.

Biden, who has called Putin a "killer" who "doesn't have a soul," has continued to rebuke Russia and promised to do so if it fails to play nice.
