'It was a good day for Russia' - Trump blasts Biden-Putin summit in Geneva



Former US President, Donald Trump has reacted to Joe Biden's summit with Russian president Vladmir Putin in Geneva.



Trump joined Fox News "Hannity" on Thursday, June 17, for an exclusive and wide-ranging interview, hours after President Biden held a closed-door summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland.


Trump told host Sean Hannity he is upset that Biden didn't score any wins during the summit, while in claiming Putin and Russia came out tops.


Trump highlighted the fact Biden stood by his decision to assent to the NordStream II pipeline's completion while canceling a Canadian-American pipeline project.


He said Russia will receive an undue windfall from oil sales to Germany while Chancellor Angela Merkel continues to underpay her country's own dues to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which balance will instead continue to be subsidized by the United States.


"We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing. We gave up something that was unbelievably valuable. I stopped the pipeline, NordStream II, and the pipeline was stopped, and it was given back [to Germany and Russia] and nothing was gotten for it," Trump said.


"I think it was a good day for Russia. I don't think we got anything out of it."
