Donald Trump to Newsmax: Biden v. Putin 'Not a Fair Match' (Newsmax/"Spicer & Co.")

While President Joe Biden is going to be meeting virtually with Russian President Vladimir Putin, former President Donald Trump told Newsmax he is not optimistic of progress, because Biden is in over his head.
"Now I see that Biden is going to be talking to Putin, and that's not a fair match," Trump told Monday's "Spicer & Co." when asked about Biden seeking to press Putin on his reported military buildup on the Russia-Ukraine border as Putin seeks to pressure the world to not permit Ukraine to join the NATO alliance.
"That wouldn't have been a fair match in prime time. This is not a fair match for our country."
Trump told co-host Sean Spicer and Lyndsay Keith in an exclusive phone interview this is what America gets when it permitted Biden to win a "rigged" and "stolen" election that abused mass mail-in balloting outside the authority of state legislatures under the guise of COVID-19 safety protocols.
"The election was rigged, and it was stolen, and this is what we got," Trump continued to Keith. "This is not a match that should even be allowed. This is the New England Patriots playing your high school football team. That's what you have right now."
Trump lamented President Joe Biden permitting the Germany to Russia oil pipeline his administration had stopped in the best interests of Americans and the world.
"We never had any problem," Trump said of his matchup with Putin on the world stage. "Nobody was tougher on Russia than I was, and I like Putin – got along with him very well. But I was the one that stopped the pipeline. There can be no bigger thing than that. I sanctioned them, and I stopped the pipeline going all over Europe. And nobody could do bigger than that. Outside of the horror show of war itself, nobody could do bigger than that."
Trump blasted the Russia hoax narrative Democrats weaponized in seeking to tarnish and stall his administration.
"I hear how nice I was to Russia; I got along great with Putin, but I was tough with Putin tougher than anybody ever," Trump said, noting he had tough but strong interactions with America's chief world rivals: Russia, China, and North Korea.
"Tougher than anybody on China, tougher than anybody ever also," Trump continued. "And if you look at North Korea, I got along great with Kim Jong Un. I got along great with President Xi [Jinping] of China, and I got along well with Putin."
Trump was appearing Monday night to pitch his new coffee-table picture book, "Our Journey Together," which is officially being released Tuesday and has already sold out more than 100,000 first-print copies in pre-order.
