Russian president Vladimir Putin says he prefers Joe Biden over Donald Trump in the White House because he is

 

Russian President, Vladimir Putin has said that Russia would prefer to see U.S. President Joe Biden win a second term, describing him as more experienced and predictable than Donald Trump. 

 

Putin made the comment while speaking bout the upcoming U.S. presidential election in an interview on Russian state television on Wednesday, February 14. 

 

“Biden, he’s more experienced, more predictable, he’s a politician of the old formation,” Putin said, when asked which candidate would be better for Russia. “But we will work with any U.S. leader whom the American people trust.”

At a campaign rally Wednesday night, Trump appeared to embrace Putin’s criticism, saying: “Putin is not a fan of mine.”

 

Asked about speculation on Biden’s health issues, Putin responded that “I’m not a doctor and I don’t consider it proper to comment on that.” He added that Biden seemed in fine shape when the two leaders met in Switzerland in June 2021.

 

“Even then people were saying that he was incompetent, but I did not see anything of this sort,” Putin said. “Yes, he was peeking at his notes from time to time, but, frankly speaking, I was peeking at mine as well. So he banged his head on his helicopter when he was getting out of it − who hasn’t banged their head on something?”

 

Asked about his impressions from his last week’s interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Putin said he expected Carlson to be more aggressive.

 

“I expected him to be aggressive and ask the so-called tough questions, and I wasn’t only ready for it but wanted it because it would have given me a chance to respond sharply,” Putin said.
