Biden says he's preparing initiatives to make it difficult for Putin to 'do what people are worried he may do' in Ukraine
President Joe Biden said Friday he is preparing a "set of initiatives" to make it more difficult for Russian President Vladimir Putin to "do what people are worried he may do" -- namely, having Russia invade Ukraine.
Following a speech at the White House about the latest jobs report, Biden told reporters that he's been in "constant contact" with European allies and Ukrainian officials.
"What I am doing is putting together what I believe to be the most comprehensive and meaningful set of initiatives to make it very, very difficult for Mr. Putin to go ahead and do what people are worried he may do. But that's in play right now," he added.
