President Biden on Saturday said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power,” as he declared the Russian invasion of Ukraine a “strategic failure” while pledging continued support for the embattled Ukrainian people.
“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said during a speech in front of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland.

“The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change,” a White House official told Fox News Digital shortly after the speech concluded.

President Biden on Thursday said the United States response to Russia’s potential use of chemical weapons would “trigger a response in kind,” but said the type of response would depend on “the nature of the use.”

“We would respond,” Biden said. “We would respond if he uses it.

‘In kind’ response to chemical weapons
On Thursday, Biden was asked if the U.S. would respond if Russia were to use chemical weapons as part of its invasion of Ukraine. Biden said that such a move by the Russians would “trigger a response in kind.”
After that remark, it was up to National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan to clarify. Sullivan was asked what Biden meant by “in kind.”
