Trump Tells Biden ‘Don’t Fall Asleep’ During Meeting With Putin, Sends Russian Leader Warm Regards

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Former US President Donald Trump in a statement wished his successor Joe Biden good luck in his upcoming summit with President Vladimir Putin and sent warm regards to the Russian leader.

"Good luck to Biden in dealing with President Putin – don’t fall asleep during the meeting, and please give him my warmest regards!" Trump said on Thursday.

The former US commander-in-chief also shared his own positive experience with the Russian President during the summit in Helsinki.

"As President, I had a great and very productive meeting in Helsinki, Finland, with President Putin of Russia. Despite the belated Fake News portrayal of the meeting, the United States won much, including the respect of President Putin and Russia," Trump said.

Putin and Biden will meet in Geneva on June 16 to discuss a wide range of bilateral issues, including global strategic stability, arms control, the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and Ukraine.

Commenting on the anticipated summit, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow hopes that Washington will review its past mistakes before the meeting. The top diplomat added that Russia is open for "frank dialogue."

Bilateral relations have deteriorated recently over a series of accusations against Moscow, including allegations of cyberattacks and its alleged meddling in the US elections. Russia has dismissed all accusations as lacking any proof, while also introducing "mirror" measures in response to anti-Russia sanctions slapped by Washington.
