(UnitedVoice.com) – President Joe Biden toured a Ukrainian refugee processing center in Warsaw, Poland on March 26. He also met with Ukrainian officials to discuss how the US could continue to help the country fight the Russian invasion. The 46th president also gave an incredibly controversial speech on Saturday, and Putin has now responded.
Biden went off script during his speech and said, “For God’s sake, [Russian President Vladimir Putin] cannot remain in power.”
Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to Biden’s remarks in an interview with Reuters, saying it’s not up to Biden to decide who’s running Russia; it’s up to the Russian people.
Biden’s remarks sent shockwaves across the world. Michael Goodwin, the New York Post’s chief political columnist, called Biden’s speech a “catastrophe.” French President Emmanuel Macron warned against using inflammatory language that could worsen the situation. Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) said the president made a “horrendous gaffe.” The White House walked back his remarks shortly after, telling Fox News Digital that the POTUS wasn’t talking about a regime change.
On Monday, President Biden told reporters he was just expressing moral outrage over Putin’s actions. He said he would not apologize for his remarks because they were his “personal feelings.” Of course, we should note the president expressed his personal feelings while he was on a stage speaking for the American people.
Do you believe Russia needs a regime change?
