Vladimir Putin doesn’t want me to be President. He doesn’t want me to be our nominee. If you’re wondering why — it’s because I’m the only person in this field who’s ever gone toe-to-toe with him.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Putin and Biden would meet for a summit on the basis that Russia does not invade Ukraine. It was one of those ‘in principle’ agreements. Yeah, that’s not happening. The Russians say there are no concrete plans on their end, and with this invasion—it’s probably not going to happen.
Yet, meeting one-on-one with the Russian president. Isn’t that a bad idea or something? That’s what Harris felt in 2018 when Trump was in office.
Especially given the indictments yesterday, the President should not be meeting one-on-one with Vladimir Putin. We must hold Russia accountable for their attacks in 2016.
