That level of cooperation seems to be working with GOP numb nuts so let’s go GLOBAL with the concept. WAKE UP- he wants “USSR” again. And US GONE. Biden is no no novice n the international theater. Unlike trump he's not swayed by flattery. Putin s main goal is 2 do away w/the sanctions which affect his rich oligarch allies who r crying bcause their income & assets & lifestyles have been impacted by these sanctions.1/2 Biden is a huge Russia guy
