Russian President Putin called former U.S. President Trump an 'extraordinary individual' today, while demeaning President* Joe Biden as a 'career man'.
"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 said in an interview with NBC News.
"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," Putin noted.
On Thursday, Trump asked Joe Biden in a written statement to give Putin his "warmest regards" at the upcoming Geneva summit. The former president said his meeting with the Russian leader in Helsinki, Finland in 2018 was "great and very productive," reported Russian state news agency TASS.
Putin called Biden in other comments, a 'career man'.
US President Joe Biden is a career politician and there is hope that there will not be any impulse-based movements, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with NBC TV channel.
The Russian leader noted that Biden "is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics," wrote TASS.
"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," Putin said.
When asked about Biden's remarks calling Putin a 'killer', Putin responded, "I always guided by the interests of Russian people and Russian state. And some kind of labels - it's not something I worry about in the least.
"Over my tenure, I've gotten used to attacks from all kinds of angles and from all kinds of areas under all kinds of pretext, and reasons and of different caliber and fierceness and none of it surprises me," Putin said.
