‘Weak’ Joe Biden branded ‘out of his depth’ with Vladimir Putin after summit

Writing in the Telegraph, Mr Gardiner said Mr Biden is following his predecessor Barack Obama’s “lacklustre ‘leading from behind’ doctrine”.

He then said Mr Biden agreeing to the summit “was a mistake”, with no “conceivable benefit” for the US.

The former aide wrote: “Putin is not a pragmatist like Mikhail Gorbachev, the Cold War leader who worked with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher to bring an end to the Soviet Empire.

“He is a cold-blooded killer, schooled in the murderous and uncompromising mindset of the KGB, and he should never have been granted a meeting with the US president while there are still Russian troops in Georgia and Ukraine.”
