Biden says Putin doesn’t want Clinton to be president

Vice President Joe Biden says he thinks Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t want Hillary Clinton to become president.

Biden tells ABC’s “Good Morning America” that adversaries of the US think it’s better to have someone “who doesn’t have any idea what they’re doing” in the White House than have somebody “as tough as Hillary.” He says Putin doesn’t want to see a united NATO or a united European Union.

Biden says he doesn’t know for sure if Russia was responsible for leaking embarrassing emails from the Democratic National Committee. But he says the leak is consistent with Russia’s past conduct.

He also says Republican Donald Trump and his running mate “don’t know what they’re talking about” when it comes to national security. Biden criticizes Trump for wanting to break up US alliances with NATO countries.
