Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to Biden’s on-air attacks by challenging him to live discussion or debate, insinuating that Joe is unable to handle an in-person conversation without assistance from aides. Putin hopes to discuss the intelligence report that apparently contains evidence of attempted Russian interference in the 2020 election.
Putin spoke to a Moscow reporter on Monday. “I just thought of something – I want to invite President Joe Biden to continue our discussion,” the Russian President said, adding, “There’s only one condition. We must do it live, actually live. But with no delays – a direct and open discussion.”
Putin continued to quietly mock the American President by saying a discussion between two world superpowers would “be quite interesting for the American and Russian people.”
Biden picked this fight with Putin earlier this week when, during an interview was asked, “Do you think Putin is a killer?” Biden responded, “I do.”
In response to Biden’s statement, Putin retaliated: “It takes one to know one.”
When asked by reporters if Biden regretted his remarks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered, “Nope.”
Putin suggested having holding the live discussion as soon as Friday or even Monday, knowing full well that would be an impossibility for Biden. Putin added, “I can’t do it this weekend. I plan to relax a little in the Taiga.”
Biden’s anti-Putin sentiment comes after a newly-released intelligence report revealed that Russia was apparently involved in a plot to meddle in the 2020 election by seeking to to influence public opinion in opposition of Biden.
