Putin Says He Prefers Weak Joe Biden to Strong Trump in White House


Last Updated on February 15, 2024

Russian President Vladimir Putin told a journalist he would prefer weak and “more predictable” Biden than former President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

Journalist Pavel Zarubin probed the Kremlin on his thoughts about the 2024 presidential election. Putin said, “Biden. He has more experience, and he is more predictable too, an old-school politician.”

… We will work with any leader of the United States who has the trust of the American people … I believe that the current administration is pursuing what amounts to a harmful and erroneous policy. That is what I told President Biden back then.

Although Putin prefers Biden, he has been critical of the current administration. On the other hand, Trump has touted his relationship with Putin, regarding him as “smart,” reported The Hill from Trump’s South Carolina rally.

The former president considered Putin’s comments to be “a great compliment,” downplaying the Russian president’s obvious preference for power. At the South Carolina rally, he said, “[Putin] just said he would much rather have Joe Biden as president than Trump … Now that’s a compliment. … of course, he would say.”

Trump continued, “He wants Biden because he’s going to be given everything he wants, including Ukraine.”

President Zelensky presses Biden for additional funding and military aid year after year.

For context, Biden was in office one year before the invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022. He has supported Kyiv with billions in funding, munitions and restrictions on trade with Russia.

Now, the US is looking to encourage more of the fruitless war by sending additional funding. Lawmakers have not reached an official agreement, but the Senate passed $95.3 billion in emergency defense spending just this week, according to The Hill. House Republicans opposed the massive $60 billion to Ukraine but not the aid to Israel. They have also axed provisions regarding the immigration crisis in the appropriations bill.

As for Putin, he appears ready to embrace Biden’s cognitive decline. In an interview with Zarubuin, he said:

What this suggests to me is that the election campaign and domestic political struggles are gaining traction in the United States. These processes are exacerbating, so I do not think that it would be appropriate for us to weigh in on them.

He referred to his meeting with Biden in Geneva three years ago, claiming he did not notice any difference in the president’s ability. He did not see anything that would render Biden unfit for office, relayed the report.

In 2021, Biden and Putin met during the US-Russia summit in Geneva, Switzerland.

“The fact that he banged his head on something when descending from a helicopter, well, who of us has never banged his head on something?” Queried Putin, “Let them throw the first stone, as the saying goes.”

The Russian president is being purposely deceitful as special counsel Robert Hur’s health report mentioned a series of mental declines, including memory lapses. The report was mostly noted for describing Biden as an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

The Hill additionally reported that Trump, himself, is feeling the heat for comments about encouraging Russian aggression towards “delinquent” NATO allies failing to meet “necessary” defense spending.
