In a sad replay of other Democrat summits with the Russians, Joe Biden was played at his recent confab with Putin. But this isn’t an epiphany, as we sent a doddering fool out to do a president’s job. And worse, the Chinese also profited from Biden’s ineptitude.
FNC: “Some top foreign policy experts have warned that the U.S.-Russia summit may not have only been a perceived win for Russian President Vladimir Putin, but could have actually emboldened China. Former intelligence officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and author of the upcoming ‘Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat America,’ Rebekah Koffler told Fox News that China is ‘elated’ at how the summit played out. ‘Allowing Putin to berate and discredit us in a solo press conference is quite a mistake for the Biden administration,’ Koeffler said. ‘To give them that ability, China comes out on top.’
Others argued that though the meeting was necessary, it enabled Putin to boost his public image back home while deflecting allegations of cybercrime attacks that have threatened U.S. national security.”

Former CIA Moscow station chief Daniel Hoffman said in an interview that “Putin got what he wanted, which was a big summit before his parliamentary elections. I think China’s happy that Russia is such a thorn in our side. We take so much of our time and our energy and our resources to deal with Russia we have less to deal with China.”
“It really will be hard to know until we see how…the Russians behave in the coming months and after,” Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute Hal Brands told media. Brands argued that Putin has put the Biden administration in a “jam.”
Brands: “The United States would like its relationship with Russia to be more stable and quieter so it can focus on China – Putin knows that. That gives Putin an incentive to be disruptive so he can try and raise the price the United States has to pay for calm in its relationship with Russia…The drivers of China-Russia relations were pretty strong before the summit. They have a shared geopolitical animus towards the United States and they have a shared ideological imperative in protecting dictatorial regimes in a largely democratic world.”
