Putin called Trump an extraordinary and talented person.
“He’s a bright person, whether you like him or not. But he didn’t come from the American establishment, he wasn’t part of big politics [before being elected president]. Some people like it, some people don’t like it, but it’s a fact,” the head of Russia said about the former US president.
At the same time, Putin noted that the current American leader Joe Biden is “radically different” from his predecessor, as he is a “career man” and has spent almost all of his adult life in politics.
“This is a different type of person, and I really hope that yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will be no impulsive actions on the part of the current US president,” the Russian president added.
During the interview, Putin also said that he was not concerned about the scandalous interview with US President Joe Biden, in which he made insults to his Russian counterpart.
