US President Joe Biden used time away from summit meetings on his European tour this week for intense preparations ahead of his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to officials, as he works to avoid the pitfalls his predecessors faced meeting with the Russian leader.
Most of his formal meetings this week have started after noon, leaving his mornings free for consultations with advisers. He has held lengthy preparation sessions with senior officials, including Secretary of State Tony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan, to discuss the wide range of issues he plans to bring up with Putin, from cyber to Syria to Ukraine. headtopics.com
The President also asked foreign leaders at the G7, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for their input as he prepared for the meeting in Geneva, according to people familiar with the conversations. Putin even came up as a point of conversation during his tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, Biden told reporters, saying she “wanted to know” about the Russian president.
Given some NATO allies had expressed concern about the optics of Biden's summit with Putin, Sullivan said Biden would speak privately with leaders"about what he intends to talk to Putin about" during a summit of the defense alliance on Monday.
"He gets to hear from them as well, so that he will go into Geneva with the full support and solidarity of all of our NATO allies," Sullivan told reporters on Air Force One Sunday. Sullivan specifically highlighted Biden's meeting with Turkish President Erdogan on Monday as a chance to"compare notes."
As Biden becomes the fifth straight American president with whom Putin has met, officials want Biden to be prepared for Putin’s tactics, including his well-known habit of turning discussions of Russia’s bad practices back on the United States. Biden has told aides he believes Putin will respond to directness during their talks, and wants to be ready to offer a frank message. headtopics.com
"He’s overprepared!" Biden's wife Jill exclaimed last week when asked whether her husband was primed for his meeting with Putin. Read more: CNN »
kylieatwood First thing he'll ask Vladimir is, What kind of ice cream do you like the most? kylieatwood The fact that UAP/UFOs are not on this list is a complete travesty. ufotwitter kylieatwood Obsessed media aren't they? kylieatwood I can’t believe how the media exaggerates the importance of Russia. The US has 3 individual states, CA, TX and NY with larger economies than Russia. They are a pain in the ass, but hardly deserving to be treated as a credible peer of the US.
kylieatwood America is about to look so bad after this. 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️ kylieatwood You forgot the ones when he says 'I'm going to get in trouble' and 'Um, Ah, Um, Ah.....' kylieatwood What a joke, dude doesn’t even know where he is 91.8% of the time Come on after seeing the videos of him and he was your parent you would be considering putting him in an assisted living facility
Autocrat v Democrat, wonder who the likely winner will be?

President Biden arrives at NATO for first visit as PresidentPresident Joe Biden has arrived at his first in-person North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit Monday, vowing to reaffirm the United States' commitment to a military alliance his predecessor viewed with disdain. Os trágicos resultados da gestão Pazuello na Saúde são um prelúdio do que nos aguarda com o retorno dos militares ao poder. Não esqueçam, na década de 80, eles entregaram o país com um processo inflacionário devastador e com mais de 70% da população vivendo na extrema pobreza. First someone tell him the difference between libya and syria.... Biden is a leader the same way as BLM protesters are peaceful... 🤔
Why Biden and Putin won't hold a joint press conferenceWednesday's private meetings grant the President, who has sometimes stumbled in his messaging while in front of the press, the opportunity to confront Putin directly and without cameras. Putin should demand they be alone with out all of Biden's handlers. And we think a seasoned politician is nervous in front of cameras and that causes his gaffes. Really? We dont know all the other gaffes for obvious reasons, they dont occur in front of cameras. Dude is a vegetable
Joe Biden told Putin he had no 'soul' during odd Kremlin visit in 2011The then-VP claimed he looked into the Russian leader's eyes and told him, 'I don't think you have a soul' during their handshake. He’s not wrong 😑 Funny thing is - Biden was supposed to say 'Try the Sole' but his Bluetooth connection went bad while his handlers were transmitting. Biden will soon meet Trump’s owner
