Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to admire U.S. president 45 and bit more than 46.
Putin sat down for an interview with NBC News ahead of the summit next week with President Biden
“Well even now, I believe that former U.S. president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual, otherwise he would not have become U.S. President,” Putin told NBC’s Keir Simmons during a wide-ranging and, at times, contentious interview. “He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment, he had not been part of big time politics before, and some like it some don’t like it but that is a fact.”
Biden “is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics.
“That’s a different kind of person, and it is my great hope that yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will not be any impulse-based movements, on behalf of the sitting U.S. president.”
