While speaking to employees at the State Department, President Joe Biden insulted former President Donald Trump while challenging Russian President Vladimir Putin and the relationship between Trump and Putin.
At one point, Biden, commenting on his recent phone call with Putin, stated: “…I made it clear to President Putin, in a manner very different from my predecessor, that the days of the United States rolling over in the face of Russia’s aggressive actions – interfering in our elections, cyberattacks, poisoning its citizens – are over. We will not hesitate to raise the cost on Russia and defend our vital interests and our people.”
