White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre again avoided giving any helpful information to reporters.
"Jean-Pierre declined to give additional background to President Joe Biden's claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a 'rational actor' who 'miscalculated' how the Ukraine war would go," reports Washington Examiner.
"Jean-Pierre faced several questions Wednesday about Biden's comments, which were made during a Tuesday evening interview on CNN, to which she pointed to Biden's more than 40 years of experience in foreign policy," according to Washington Examiner.
"This is a place, an arena if you will, that he knows very well," the Press Secretary stated. "The president was very clear when he said that Putin was a rational actor who badly miscalculated, and we've talked about why he badly miscalculated."
"Jean-Pierre cited a 'stronger NATO' uniting behind Ukraine as a core pillar of Putin's miscalculation but did not specify why Biden called him a 'rational actor,'" reported Washington Examiner.
"I'm just going to let his words stand," she said. "He said, the president's words, he's a rational actor who badly miscalculated. He miscalculated what his aggression, what his war that he created against Ukraine would lead to, and we've seen that Putin has become a pariah."
