Joe Biden once again called Vladimir Putin a “dictator”, which the Kremlin had already denounced
US President Joe Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin “adictator,“claiming that his main political opponent, former President Donald Trump, would “bow down» if he was elected in 2024. The Democrat also presented himself as a defender of American democracy.
Speaking to supporters at a fundraiser at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in New York on Monday, Biden said: “I will not side with dictators like Putin. Maybe Trump and his MAGA friends can bow, but I won’t.»
The outgoing president affirmed that “Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans are determined to destroy American democracy,» while he always would «protect and fight” for that.
This recent comment by the American head of state towards President Putin is not the first time he has called another foreign leader a dictator.
Last March, Biden told attendees of the annual Friends of Ireland luncheon that the United States and its allies were united against a “murderous dictator, a pure thug who is waging an immoral war against the Ukrainian people.“The day before, the American president had declared that he considered Putin to be a “war criminal.»
Commenting on Biden’s remarks at the time, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the TASS news agency that Moscow considered “Such rhetoric is unacceptable and unforgivable from a head of state whose bombs have killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world.» He noted that the US leader had resorted to “personal insults,“a level than President Putin, a”thoughtful and wise leader,“I would never lower myself to that.
Last month, several US media outlets also quoted President Biden as saying that China was led by “bad peoples.» In June, he called Chinese President Xi Jinping “adictator,» which Beijing described as “political provocation.»
