Putin says Trump is an “extraordinary talented individual” calls Biden “radically different” and “a career man”

During an interview with NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons, Russian leader Vladimir Putin was asked “You once described President Trump as a bright person, talented, how would you describe President Biden?”

Putin replied “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. He is a colorful individual,” he continued. “You may like him or not. 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.”

“President Biden, of course, is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man,” he continued. “He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics … Just think of the number of years he spent in the Senate”

“That’s a different kind of person, and it is my great hope that yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages,” he added.
