This Tuesday, Joe Biden met with his Russian rival Vladimir Putin for the first time as president in Geneva. Following the face-to-face exchange, the US president gave a press conference at which he fired slightly at a CNN reporter.
Caitlin Collins asked him why he believes Putin will change his behavior. Then the President of the United States responded by raising his voice: “God … what are you always doing? Let me be clear, I said, what would change their behavior if other parts of the world reacted. It lowers their position in the world. I have no faith in anything, I only tell the truth.” He corrects.
The channel’s journalist rushes to jump behind. “During the press conference after your meeting, Putin refused to engage in cyber-attacks. He underestimated human rights abuses. He even refused to mention the name of Alexei Navalny. So what is this? A constructive meeting?” He asked.
“If you do not understand, you are in the wrong job,” Biden replied.
Shortly afterwards, the president reconsidered his comments and apologized to reporters. Before boarding his plane to return to Washington, he said, “I must apologize to my last speaker.” “I shouldn’t have played smart.” We are not accustomed to Trump.
