Biden is a ‘shame’ to the United States, says Dmitri Medvedev, former president of Russia

The former Russian president and current deputy head of the country’s Security Council, Dmitri Medvedev, assured this Friday, March 8, that the American leader, Joe Biden, is a “shame” for his country.

In a message on social network X, before Twitter, Medvedev assured that Biden had no right to compare himself with Franklin D. Roosevelt during his recent State of the Union address.

“Although Roosevelt was a sick man in a wheelchair, he brought the United States out of the Depression, Biden, on the other hand, is a crazy and mentally disabled man, who has decided to drag humanity to hell,” wrote Medvedev, known for his incendiary and aggressive messages on social networks.

According to the former president (2008-2012), Roosevelt fought for peace and against fascistswhile Biden helps them, in reference to the Government of Ukraine, which Moscow calls “Nazi.”

Biden invoked Roosevelt in his State of the Union address the day before to convince Congress of the importance of aid to Ukraine.

“My message to President (Vladímir) Putin is clear. We will not withdraw. We will not give in, I will not give in. History is watching us,” added the US president before the two chambers of Congress.

In his speech, Biden also accused his Republican rival, Donald Trump, of kowtowing to Russia.

The keys to Joe Biden’s message

President Joe Biden cast himself as the bulwark against the rising tide of threats to democracy and presented his predecessor Donald Trump as responsible for those dangers.

Biden, in a sharply political State of the Union, repeatedly made direct comparisons to Trump without mentioning him by name. He criticized the embrace of Russian President Vladimir Putin by his November opponent, his restrictive views on abortion rightshis stance toward China and opposition to arms control.

One of his most forceful moments was criticizing Trump for his efforts to overturn the 2020 electionswhich sparked an insurrection at the Capitol.

“You can’t love your country only when you win”Biden said in his speech to Congress.
