House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) appeared on Fox News’ America Reports Wednesday to discuss President Biden’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland. Scalise says he hopes Biden stands up to the Russian President, but Biden’s track record so far doesn’t hold up to the President before him.

“Unfortunately, we’ve seen a lot of weakness from President Biden as it relates to Russia,” Scalise said. I mean, you look, [on] day one, President Biden kills the Keystone pipeline, kills thousands of American jobs, undermines our relationship with Canada, and then he [turned] around just a few weeks ago and [gave] financial incentives to Russia so that Russia can build a pipeline to Germany. So, he helps Russia create Russian jobs and Russian energy dominance with Germany, and he undermines America’s energy dominance that we had under President Trump.”

Biden was defensive of his meeting with Putin during a following press conference. A reporter asked him if he thought the meeting was constructive, considering Putin still denies human rights abuses and cyber attacks. The 46th President simply responded: “If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business.”

But, Scalise had the same question: “Is [Biden] going to stand up to President Putin on the hacking that’s been done from Russians?”

“The disinformation — remember President Biden was Vice President when Russia tried to interfere with our 2016 election — I didn’t see President Biden stand up to him then,” Scalise said.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
