Biden told the press this morning, in the form of a head nod, that he trusts Putin:
Reporter to President Biden: Do you trust Putin? Do you trust each other?
President Biden looked directly at the reporter and nodded affirmatively.

So far, at least, the entire U.S. press pool was not able to fight their way into the top of the Putin-Biden meeting. But per @elysepg, she asked the leaders if they could trust each other, and Biden nodded his head.

Wow. Remember when Trump was asked if he trusted Putin in regards to the 2016 election interference and Trump essentially said yes? The media completely lost it.
Biden was just asked if he trust Putin, and he nodded Yes
I was in Helsinki standing next to CNN when they lost their minds at Trump for doing the exact same thing

The White House, sensing the gravity of what Biden said, are already saying he didn’t mean it:
It was a chaotic scrum with reporters shouting over each other. @POTUS was very clearly not responding to any one question, but nodding in acknowledgment to the press generally. He said just two days ago in his presser: “verify, then trust.” https://t.co/5C9gP4XTtO

How is ‘verify, then trust’ a defense? Before his meeting, Trump had also said he trusted the intelligence community’s assessment that Russian interfered in the 2016 election and then in the presser suggested he trusted Putin, and that certainly didn’t stop the media from going ballistic. Remember all hooey they made out of that closed door meeting, even suggesting that they wanted to subpoena that translator to find out what was really said in the meeting?
But Biden will get a pass by the media because the White House said he didn’t really mean it or something. Because he gets a pass on everything by this fawning propaganda media.
I’ll leave you with this…
