“We can’t turn the clock back,” but Clinton is optimistic as the Biden-Putin summit kicks off.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday she is optimistic about the summit between President Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin, celebrating what she expects will be straightforward talks between the two leaders after what she called four “lost” years on Russia-U.S. relations.
In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Clinton recalled her own talks with Putin from her tenure as secretary of state, describing the Russian president’s tactic of “mansplaining” during negotiations and arriving late to keep his U.S. counterpart waiting.
