President Biden will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the next 25 hours. Sadly, for American security, he shows up with a self-dealt weak hand that could have been much stronger.
We in the Trump administration created real leverage against Russia he could have used. Instead, he has chosen to abandon it.

I hope Biden will exercise the options available to him to right this ship and secure America from Russian malign activity.
