Biden is set to meet with Putin in Geneva, Switzerland, on Wednesday in an 18th-century Swiss villa where the two are expected to touch on a range of heated issues, including election interference, cyberattacks, human rights, Ukraine, and nuclear stability.
Also in his statement, Trump mentioned his own meetings with Putin and said that despite unfavorable media coverage, the Russian leader respected the United States during Trump’s time in office:
“As President, I had a great and very productive meeting in Helsinki, Finland, with President Putin of Russia. Despite the belated Fake News portrayal of the meeting, the United States won much, including the respect of President Putin and Russia.”
Trump then went on to slam Democrats and those involved in the Russia investigation, who ultimately failed to charge him with a crime or remove him from office.

Trump continued, “As to who do I trust, they asked, Russia or our ‘Intelligence’ from the Obama era, meaning people like Comey, McCabe, the two lovers, Brennan, Clapper, and numerous other sleezebags, or Russia, the answer, after all that has been found out and written, should be obvious. Our government has rarely had such lowlifes as these working for it.”
