Forget Making America Great Again, Biden is focused on Making Russia Great Again.
Biden’s call with Russia on Tuesday has done nothing in terms of advancing U.S interest.
As a matter of fact, it’s advanced Russia’s interest.
This call gave Russia the ability to come to the table to negotiate with America in the first place and that in of itself was wrong.
It gave Russia the impression they are on the same level with the U.S.
Furthermore we all know Putin does not see Biden as a strong president (let’s be honest, neither do most of us).
But I’m afraid to report this view of weakness is even stronger than it was before.
Biden has essentially given Russia everything they’ve wanted.
Biden has guaranteed the U.S will NOT take military action against Russia if they decide to invade into Ukraine.
New York Post has more on the story:
The two-hour video tete-a-tete on Tuesday between President Biden and Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has predictably not borne fruit for America. Biden issued stern warnings about sanctions that were widely celebrated in the American press. But Putin was already well aware of these warnings. The session was, in fact, a hollow exercise in showmanship. And Putin stole the show.
Instead of being a moment for projecting US resolve, the meeting was just another step in Biden’s ongoing, unintentional plan to help Putin make Russia great again by allowing the Russian president to reassert his influence over the nations of the former Soviet Union.
The call was followed by a terrible blunder. Biden granted Moscow the guarantee that the US will not use force to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. While using force against Russia is a bad idea with respect to Ukraine, which is not part of NATO or a critical US asset, Biden abandoned a valuable tool, the principle of strategic ambiguity. Biden could have kept Putin off balance and unsure of what we would do. But by stating that force was “not on the table,” Biden may have guaranteed that Russia will proceed militarily into Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Putin has noticed Biden’s other weaknesses toward Russia. The US president backed completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Europe, giving Russia a useful spigot to turn on and off in order to force Western Europe to do his bidding.
Make no mistake, those “sanctions” mean nothing to Russia.
The US president’s threat of sanctions has little effect on the Russians, who have historically endured far worse deprivation than anything US economic measures could inflict on them. For Putin, control of Ukraine is a “red line,” and he will do what he has to in order to maintain it.

Biden really screwed up by allowing Russia to make demands.
He gave Russia the legitimacy they were so desperately craving by negotiating with him in the first place, rather than TELLING Russia what we wanted from them.
Here are some reactions to this news:
Biden is a WEAK president, Putin knows it and plans to use this time during Biden’s administration to do what he pleases.
I just hope Putin’s plans won’t be so irreversible that it makes cleaning up this mess harder for the next president.
The development of U.S and Russia tensions over the next couple of months will be very telling.
Does anyone else miss Trump Making America Great Again, yet? I know I most certainly do!
