President Biden will deliver his remarks after his administration secured the WNBA star’s release
Brittney Griner, the WNBA star who was held for months in Russian prisons on drug charges, was released Thursday in a prisoner exchange for international arms dealer Viktor Bout, according to a US official. The one-to-one exchange deal negotiated with Moscow in recent weeks received final approval from President Biden within just the past week, according to sources familiar with the deal.
The successful release of Grainer is yet another foreign policy success for President Biden who is expected to speak out for Grenier and reaffirm his commitment to the release of all Americans unlawfully detained by regimes around the world.
Unlike Trump, Biden is not a photograph and will not make this moment look at him, but his administration’s competent and skillful diplomacy deserves praise and is a far cry from what the United States was experiencing in the shadow of World War II. Previous failed administration.
Republicans continue to wait for Biden to fail, but at every turn they are met with more success and sound governance.
