President Joe Biden doesn’t regret agreeing with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos during recent interview that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “a killer,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday.
In a highly unusual move shortly after Biden’s remarks aired on national television, the Russian government recalled its US ambassador from Washington, DC, citing “an irreversible deterioration in relations.”
“It takes one to know one,” Putin said when asked to comment on Biden’s criticism of him.
“The president gave a direct answer to a direct question,” Psaki told a reporter who asked whether Biden regretted his remark.
