Trump continued and criticized President Joe Bidens' suggestion to exchange her for Bout. He was supposed to get her out for an absolute murderer who killed many Americans and killed many people, and he's going to get a free card, and he's going to get her, he said. It certainly doesnt seem like a very good trade. A potentially spoiled person goes into Russia loaded with drugs.
CNN reported on July 27 that Biden's alleged proposal was presented by the United States. The United States reportedly offered the proposal weeks ago, which would involve a scuffle between Griner and another US citizen,Paul Whelan, who is also being detained in Russia on espionage charges. Bout is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence.
