Joe Biden finally said it…
He called Putin a “war criminal.”
After Biden’s off-the-cuff remark, he hit Putin again, but avoided the war criminal description.
His words did not go over very well with Putin, to say the least.
But He Is…
This may be the first thing I have agreed with Biden since he took office.
After he said it, however, the White House went into cleanup mode to try to prevent Biden’s words from creating an escalation with Putin.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated, “He was speaking from his heart and speaking from what we’ve seen on television, which is barbaric actions by a brutal dictator through his invasion of a foreign country.”
She was also very quick to mention that the “legal process” was still underway and no clear determination had been made as of yet.
A spokesperson for the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, immediately lashed out over the comments made by Biden.
He stated, “We consider unacceptable and unforgivable such rhetoric of the head of state, whose bombs killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world.”
Secretary of State Blinken added a little more fuel to the fire, also calling Putin a war criminal this week.
Putin is now threatening any nation that delivers arms to Ukraine as a legitimate military target, which means that the $1 billion in military aid we are sending to Ukraine will now make us a target of Russia.
Let’s see if Joe stiffens up and delivers on his promise or backs down to the Putin threat.
Do you think Putin is trying to lure the United States into a conflict?
