“I'm not walking anything back,” Biden said. “The fact of the matter is I was expressing the moral outrage I felt toward the way Putin is dealing and the actions of this man, which is just brutality.” Biden noted that he felt that outrage after meeting with refugees in Warsaw, Poland.

“I want to make it clear, I wasn't then nor am I now articulating a policy change,” he said. “I was expressing moral outrage that I feel. I make no apologies for it." The president also said he doesn't believe his comments complicate the diplomatic efforts to end the war or escalate the hostilities.

  1. Good for you Biden. You’re the first Democrat I’ve seen in a long time that believes people have to pay for their actions. Putin definitely has to pay.

    1. Good for you? This guy is a danger to this country and the world with all his walking back and his stupid dangerous statements! The world is laughing at this idiot!

  2. Remember when the liberal media said Trump was going get us into world war 3 and nuclear war lmfao

    1. He did. Don’t forget what trump did to Ukraine and NATO. It was all for Putin. You are blind. You are stuck in a fox hole, good luck seeing the light that is common sense and truth.

    2. You are not a proud American. You are a proud traitor who is backing a dictator and you are too sucked in to see it.

    1. The media did not twist his words he clearly said he wanted Putin out of power. Biden is a dangerous moron who should keep his mouth shut

    2. @I’m a Covid variantBo more dangerous than the last Moron that was voted in but I agree. He should keep his mouth shut. We need to have better options than these geriatric Presidents who clearly can’t articulate their opinions without inserting a hand or foot in their mouth.

  3. We used to call it moral courage. To speak up what is right, to defend those who can’t defend themselves, sooner or later we all have to make a stand for our values. Mr Biden president sir thank you very much. I don’t understand why Mr Trump could speak of such horrible and even illegal things and no one stood up , and said enough is enough. You brought back to the White House the dignity and the integrity and the strength of character. You have risen to the challenge of being president of the United States and you are doing extremely well. Thank you for your example.

    1. Are you out of your mind? This guy is a menace to the world! He saying he’s going to put Putin out of power as in a regime change? That’s called being completely irresponsible and provoking an already insane dictator! This is the fourth time in a week that Biden has made a stupid comment! Saying he’s going to send our troops into Ukraine, saying he’s going to use bio weapons, on and on this guy never stops with his crazy rhetoric which is going to cause World War III! Please save your praise! This guy is a danger

    1. Yes please go and get the hell out of the White House and into the nursing home where you belong

    1. The only this “we’re all” thinking is how sad dementia Joe cannot form a complete sentence without a teleprompter🤣🖕🏽

  4. “Get behind me, Satan”, or “Go away, Satan”, and in older translations such as the King James Version “Get thee behind me, Satan”, is a saying of Jesus in the New Testament. It is first attested in Mark 8:33, where Jesus is addressing Peter; this is retold in Matthew

  5. I did not vote for him but he not walking back on what he said was impressive!!! 👍😎👍

    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him……………………………………..
