Israeli political scientist, ex-head of the Nativ service, Yakov Kedmi, on the air of the Iton-TV channel, assessed the debate between US President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden and came to the conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin would have won the elections in the States without difficulty …
The political scientist noted that the Americans face a difficult task, since they have to choose “the lesser of two evils.” Kedmi explained his statement about Putin by the fact that US citizens lack a confident and strong president with a firm hand, like the Russian leader.
“Putin’s popularity in the United States is much higher than that of American politicians themselves. Resolute, strong-willed leader. This is what America wants now, ”the expert said.
The first round of the Trump-Biden debate took place onstage at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio on the evening of September 29. The opponents discussed for 96 minutes. At the same time, they constantly interrupted each other, went personal and called names. During one of his remarks, Biden called the head of the United States a clown and “Putin’s puppy.”
Political analyst Natalia Eliseeva in a conversation with “360” noted that such behavior on the part of these candidates was not something surprising. She also said that the Americans themselves expected something similar from Biden and Trump. According to her, for them such performances are always a show comparable in popularity to the Super Bowl finals.
