Biden: Putin is a 'Pariah', he's 'clearly losing' in 'Iraq'
When asked about the Wagner mutiny this past weekend, Biden says it's still early to tell whether the Russian President had been weakened by the rebellion.
During a press briefing, President Biden described Putin as a "pariah" and assesses that he was losing the war mistakenly referring to Ukraine as Iraq.

"It's hard to tell, but he's clearly losing the war in Iraq [Ukraine] and he's losing the war at home. Putin is now a pariah around the world," Biden said.
Biden also made the same gaffe in referring to Ukraine as Iraq on Tuesday when he said that he'd united the West by opposing Russia's "onslaught on Iraq."
In April, Biden confirmed that he will seek a second term at the White House in 2024, with many raising concerns that his old age might affect his capacity to run for another term.
Biden’s age is already posing a risk for the Democratic party, which is currently the minority in the House of Representatives as Republicans have taken over.
Biden, who does not drink alcohol and exercises five times a week, has been deemed "fit for duty" by doctors following a check-up in February, and according to the White House, he is mentally sharp for the job.
As of now, Biden will be running against big names like former US President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. Trump leads all rivals in a prospective field of 12 Republican candidates, with 48% support to DeSantis' 24% while Haley received a mere 5%.
