Biden's Big Mouth Has Him In Trouble For Talking Smack About Putin

A two-year-old tweet from then-presidential nominee Joe Biden alleging Russian President Vladimir Putin was scared of him has come back on him two years later as Russia invades parts of Ukraine.

Biden tweeted on Feb. 21, 2020, that Putin “doesn’t want me to be President.”

“He doesn’t want me to be our nominee. If you’re wondering why — it’s because I’m the only person in this field who’s ever gone toe-to-toe with him.”

Two years to the day later, Putin recognized the independence of two Ukrainian regions, leaving many believing that Putin is no longer interested in negotiating with the West to find a diplomatic resolution.

Following an anti-Ukraine speech Monday, Putin signed decrees recognizing the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics. The decrees order Russian armed forces to enter the territories for “peacekeeping functions.”

Biden issued an executive order after Putin’s announcement that “will prohibit new investment, trade, and financing by U.S. persons to, from, or in the so-called DNR and LNR regions of Ukraine.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration “anticipated a move like this from Russia and are ready to respond immediately.”

President Biden’s order has been largely viewed as symbolic because these transactions are almost non-existent in Donetsk and Luhansk occupied territories.

Psaki said, “these measures are separate from and would be in addition to the swift and severe economic measures we have been preparing in coordination with Allies and partners should Russia further invade Ukraine.”
