Trump news latest – Vladimir Putin says Donald is very different to Joe Biden as ex-president announces Cleveland rally
PUTIN HAD FOND WORDS FOR TRUMP AND CRITICISM FOR BIDEN
Putin also sat down with NBC this week, marking his first interview with American media in three years.
The Russian deflected recent criticism leveled against him by Biden, insisting: “Don’t be mad at the mirror if you are ugly.”
Putin also accused the US of “targeting its citizens over their political opinions”, pointing to the arrests of January 6th rioters.
“It has nothing to do with you personally. But if somebody blames us for something, what I say is, why don’t you look at yourselves? You will see yourselves in the mirror, not us.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Putin offered fond words for former President Donald Trump, who was accused throughout his four-year term of cozying up to the Russian leader.
“Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual. Otherwise, he would not have become US president,” Putin said. “He is a colorful individual.”
However, Putin added that there’s a need for “predictability and stability” in Russia’s relations with the United States.
“This is something we haven’t seen in recent years,” Trump said.
