Putin Ran The Show During Meeting With 'Confused' Biden

Leading Republicans slammed President Biden’s performance at his summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday — claiming he let the former KGB agent push “propaganda” and failed to resolve issues critical to American and global security.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo faulted Biden for letting Putin hold a lengthy, solo news conference following the sit-down, stating there should have been “an American standing beside him saying, ‘No, that’s not what we talked about. That’s not right.”

“He was allowed to go up there and spout Russian propaganda to create the context for moral equivalence between the United States and Russia on every front, whether it was talking about [Black Lives Matter] or protesters or our judicial system,” Pompeo told Fox News.

“When we have a problem here, it goes to a court. We have a system, a constitutional foundation. They have none of that.”

Pompeo continued, “I knew that this was the risk that was created” when Biden didn’t hold a joint news conference with Putin.

Former deputy national security adviser KT McFarland said, “They didn’t talk at all about China. This is the big issue right now.”

“The Chinese are in Taiwan, they are overflying Taiwan, and Russian ships are in Hawaii. That wasn’t mentioned at all,” she told Fox News.

But McFarland suggested having the two leaders appear side-by-side in Geneva, Switzerland, “would have been a terrible picture to the world.”

“All I can say is thank God the two of them didn’t stand next to each other. Joe Biden is a kindly old man and he looked tired and he didn’t have vigor,” she said.

“Compare that to Putin, who is a killer, who does have the wind at his back.”

Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley comments to Fox News that Biden failed to properly confront Putin on several key issues, including recent cyberattacks on Colonial Pipeline and meat processor JOBS.

“This isn’t rocket science. This is the fact that Russia will never be our friend. You can never trust Russia, and you have to let them know that they will be held responsible not just for what their government does, but for what anyone in Russia does in terms of attacking the United States. That didn’t happen today.”
