Putin Says He Prefers Biden over Trump Because He’s ‘More Predictable’

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview broadcast in Russia Wednesday that he’d rather have Joe Biden win the 2024 election than Trump because Biden is “more predictable.”

When asked by interviewer Pavel Zarubin who was “better for us,”  Biden or Trump, Putin didn’t hesitate to answer: “Biden. He is a more experienced, predictable person, a politician of the old school,” he said. “But we will work with any U.S. president who the American people have confidence in,” he added.

Putin, 71, has led Russia as president or prime minister since 1999.

He also discussed the sensitive issue of Biden’s mental fitness, claiming that Biden seemed fine when he met him at the U.S.-Russia summit in June of 2021.

“When I met with Biden in Switzerland – true, that was several years, three years ago – people were already saying he wasn’t up to it. I didn’t see anything of the kind,” Putin said.

He also mentioned an embarrassing physical mishap that happened in June of last year.

Biden banged his head on a helicopter door while exiting Marine One,  just hours after falling on stage during the Air Force Academy commencement ceremony.

“Well, which of us hasn’t banged his head somewhere?” Putin remarked.

Relations between the U.S. and Russia are said to be at their lowest point in more than 60 years and Putin’s comments are being perceived in the media as “mischief-making,” rather than an actual opinion.

Reuters notes that the Biden regime “has led the Western response to Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine,” although Ukraine is reportedly losing that war.

Trump, on the other hand, has famously claimed in interviews that he warned Putin that the U.S. would bomb Moscow if Russia invaded Ukraine.

In an interview in February of 2022 with the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin, Trump said he told Putin: “If you move against Ukraine while I’m president, I will hit Moscow.”

Putin reportedly scoffed “so way” in response, leading Trump to say, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”

In March of 2022, Trump told golf pro John Daly in a phone call posted to social media that Putin “was a friend of mine,” and he “got along great with him.”

“They’re all saying, ‘Oh, he’s a nuclear power. It’s like they’re afraid of him,’” Trump told Daly on speakerphone.

The former president said he told Putin that if Russia invaded Ukraine: “We’re gonna hit Moscow.” And “he sort of believed me, like 5 percent, 10 percent,” Trump added. “That’s all you need. He never did it during my time, John, you know … He didn’t do this during the last four years because he knew he couldn’t,” Trump added.

Putin told the Russian interviewer that Trump “has been called a non-systemic politician; he has his own view on the topic of how the United States should develop relations with its allies.”
