President Joe Biden was hoping for a breakthrough and positive news surrounding his meeting with Russian leader, Vladimir Putin.
However, GOP Senator Tom Cotton is telling America the truth.
“I think Vladimir Putin knows what’s in his best interests: it’s humiliating Joe Biden and the United States and pushing us around and the world around,” said Cotton. “If Joe Biden had gone into this from a position of strength, if he not had extended a one-sided nuclear arms control agreement with Russia, if he had shut down that Russian pipeline, we would have been in a much better position coming out of this summit.”
Cotton is spot on. Biden is trying to flex and it went very poorly. There were no gains and even the left will have to admit that is a bad look for a sitting U.S. president to leave a conversation with Putin with nothing to show for it.
China is the number one threat we face. Its economy is almost as large as ours. Russia is a declining power, its economy is smaller than Canada’s. Why is Biden going to meet with Putin on neutral ground to elevate his stature once again? It was uncalled for and I think this summit was bad for America.
