Donald Trump says President Joe Biden’s highly anticipated meeting with Vladimir Putin was a “good day for Russia” and questioned what the US “got out of it”. “I guess the overall is we didn’t get anything, we gave a very big stage to Russia,” he told Fox News. “We got nothing. We gave up something that was unbelievably valuable. I stopped the pipeline – Nord Stream – and that pipeline was stopped and it was given back and nothing was gotten for it. “I will say I think it was a good day for Russia. I don’t see what we got out of it.” Former secretary of state Mike Pompeo said Mr Biden’s decision to not hold a joint press conference with President Putin showed “enormous weakness”. President Biden, however, said he held his ground with Mr Putin. “I made it clear that we will not tolerate attempts to violate our democratic sovereignty,” he told the media. “The bottom line is I told President Putin we need to have some basic rules of the road we can all abide by.”

Biden-Putin Summit

Joe Biden Got Nothing in Geneva Summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin

Published

President Joe Biden gave Russian President Vladimir Putin almost everything he could have wanted at their Geneva summit. He elevated Putin above other leaders, including American allies; and failed to force any real concessions on Russian policy.
The degree to which the summit was a disaster became evident when Putin emerged for his press conference — alone with a forum all to himself.

The Biden team did not want to appear with Putin at a joint conference after the meeting– both because Biden would look frail next to Putin, and because of the media dogma that President Donald Trump had somehow done something terrible by behaving cordially when appearing alongside Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in 2018.
Putin fielded softball questions from Russian news agencies, but he also welcomed hostile questions from the U.S. media. (In fact, Putin, an enemy of press freedom, was more polite than Biden would be, and took far tougher questions.)
The opportunity to defend his own position, and to attack the United States, without fear of contradiction was a massive gift to the Russian president. He used the old Soviet tactic of pointing to American problems as a way of deflecting from questions about human rights and political opposition.

He did so without fear of contradiction: when he cited the Black Lives Matter movement as an example of human rights abuses in the U.S., he knew no American journalist would object.
Biden tried to use his own press conference to make all kinds of claims about tough talk to the Russian president during their two-hour meeting. (Biden claimed, falsely, that a meeting of that length was unprecedented between two heads of state: in fact, Trump met with Putin for two hours in 2017.)
It was impossible to verify Biden’s claims without Putin there to respond — and Biden has a history of exaggerating his own bravery when citing conversations with foreign leaders.
Reporters pressed the two leaders, separately, to reveal what commitments, if any, Putin had made to change Russia’s aggressive behavior. But there were none.
Putin walks away from Geneva with no significant response to cyberattacks; with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which Trump had opposed; and with no real pushback against his aggression in Ukraine. Notably, Biden met with Putin before meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — meeting TBA.

The response of the American media echoed Biden’s posture of appeasement. CNN, which had raised the alarm when Trump and Putin appeared to get along with one another, gushed about Biden’s “optimistic” tone at the summit, and how wonderful it was that Biden and Putin seemed to have had a friendly conversation.
At one point, the two leaders were so cozy that the White House had to walk back an apparent nod by Biden when he was asked if he trusted Putin.
Biden seemed unwilling to use any leverage against Putin — a fact that even the American media noted, with one journalist desperately asking whether the administration might consider using the U.S. military to stop cyberattacks. Biden’s strategy toward Putin seems to be that he can be convinced to behave more responsibly if he is told that he needs a better global image if he wants to be taken seriously by the media and American investors.
What Biden does not get — and what President Barack Obama did not get, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry did not get — is that Putin does not care. Putin cares about oil, and guns, and currency, and power. He plays by what Kerry once complained — after the Russian invasion of Crimea — are “19th century” rules. Biden does not know how to do the same.
During the 2020 campaign, Biden claimed that Trump was “unwilling to take on Putin.” But Putin leaves Geneva a winner, and Joe Biden got nothing.

Biden-Putin Summit

Vladimir Putin Refers to ‘Black Lives Matter’ to Deflect Human Rights Questions in Geneva

Published

Russian President Vladimir Putin referred to the Black Lives Matter movement at his press conference in Geneva, Switzerland, on Wednesday to deflect questions from journalists about human rights abuses in his country.
Putin made the comment as he answered reporters’ questions after a summit with President Joe Biden. The two leaders met face-to-face for two hours, and the overall meeting took three hours — less than the five that had originally been set aside. They did not speak side-by-side at the press conference; rather, Putin appeared first, and then Biden appeared later.

When Putin was asked about repressing his opponents, he said: “America quite recently had to deal with terrible events after the murder of — or the killing of — the African American and Black Lives Matter ensued. I don’t want to make any judgment about that, but what we saw, mass violations of the law, and so on and so forth, we sympathized with the Americans, but we do not wish this kind of thing should happen on our territory, and we will do our utmost to prevent it.”

It is the second time that a foreign rival has used the Black Lives Matter movement to deflect criticism on human rights. In March, Chinese diplomats rebuked Secretary of State Tony Blinken in the first U.S.-China bilateral meeting when the American side tried to bring up Chinese human rights abuses and other issues. China referred to Black Lives Matter.
Later Wednesday, when President Biden was asked by reporter Yamiche Alcindor of PBS to respond to Putin’s statement,  he said the analogy was “ridiculous.”
He went on to claim, falsely, that rioters at the Capitol Jan. 6 killed a police officer.
