The President of the United States of America Joe Biden rebuked the journalist of the CNN channel Caitlin Collins for an inappropriate question about the last meeting with Vladimir Putin. According to him, a media employee is not doing her job if she does not see a constructive approach in the Russia — US summit.
“If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business,” he said.
Later, the White House press pool reported that the US president apologized to the journalist for such a harsh statement: “I shouldn’t be so smart.”
At the same time, Biden noted that he remains with his opinion, emphasizing that it is important to be realistic while remaining optimistic. In turn, Collins replied that the apologies from the American leader were inappropriate since the job of journalists is to ask questions.
