Scott interviews Dave DeCamp about President Biden’s Russia policy. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Biden notably called Putin a “killer;” his administration has also increased sanctions against Russia and instituted some export restrictions in response to its treatment of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. In response to these incidents, Russia has recalled its ambassador to the U.S. DeCamp points out that Biden’s foreign policy isn’t turning out to be all that different than Trump’s—he has just managed to appoint people who are more popular with the political establishment, and so will be more capable of carrying their agenda.
