The GB News presenter told viewers: 'I think Biden's comments are boxing Putin even further into a corner'

GB News presenter Nigel Farage has accused Joe Biden of making "really rather dangerous" mistakes on the international stage.

Mr Farage told viewers that the US President is "saying things he's really not meant to be saying", after Mr Biden said Putin "cannot remain in power" during a speech in Warsaw.

Referencing the 46th President's comments, the GB News presenter said: "He [Joe Biden] then, over the weekend, called for regime change.

"Within minutes his own White House were denying that's what he meant."

A White House official tried to argue that the US president’s point was that the Russian leader “cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbours or the region”.

The official continued: “He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change."

Reports in the US said that Mr Biden's comments were unscripted.

Nigel Farage discussed President Biden's poll ratings in the wake of the comments: "His poll ratings have now fallen to 34 per cent, much worse than Trump got even through some of his most difficult times.

He continued: "I think Biden's comments are boxing Putin even further into a corner, and we have to find some way out."

The Government distanced the UK from Joe Biden’s apparent call for regime change.

Boris Johnson told a Parliamentary committee today that "it's not the objective of the UK government" to remove Vladimir Putin from office, but to "protect the people of Ukraine."
