Putin Would Prefer Biden To Win Election

(LibertySociety.com) – Russian President Vladimir Putin made clear his presidential preference for the United States 2024 presidential election during a February 14 interview with Rossiya 1 TV. Putin told the outlet that President Biden was “a more experienced, predictable person,” adding that he was a “politician of the old school.” When asked to pick between candidates, he indicated that he would be willing to work with anyone whom the American people trust. Former President Trump’s approach to Russia was quite different than President Biden’s. Trump believed that maintaining diplomatic ties was important, but his foreign policy of maintaining peace through strength prevented Putin from making risky moves.

Putin also rejected claims that Biden was not mentally fit, recalling their last meeting in Switzerland three years ago. He said that talks of Biden’s cognitive capabilities were also occurring during that period, but that he “saw nothing of the sort.” He said that Biden looked over his notes just as he did his own, declaring that there was no credibility behind the claims. Putin also discussed Washington’s approach to dealing with Russia, arguing that it was wrong and caused harm.

The White House quickly responded to Putin’s comments about the presidential election, telling him not to interfere. For nearly nine years, Democrats have accused Trump of working with Russia and claimed that the country helped him win the 2016 election. Trump has recently discussed how he would continue his stance with NATO regarding member countries paying their fair share, arguing that countries that refuse to do so should not be protected by the alliance. Democrats immediately took his comments and ran with a new narrative that Trump was encouraging Russia to attack NATO countries. During a recent interview with Tucker Carlson, Putin said that he had no intention of starting World War III by attacking NATO member Poland. During a February 19 interview with Jen Psaki on MSNBC California Democratic Representative Nancy Pelosi claimed that Trump was financially blackmailed by Putin.
