Joe Biden Gifts Vladimir Putin

Randolph, United States:

For his first assembly with Vladimir Putin in Geneva this week, President Joe Biden gifted his Russian counterpart a pair of American-made sun shades within the US chief’s signature aviator fashion.

Peter Waszkiewicz, head of Randolph Engineering, stated he felt “surprise” at seeing the sun shades his firm made turn into a diplomatic token at a gathering adopted the world over. 

“It was a normal business day until about after 12:00, when the phones started ringing and the social media went abuzz, then we realized what was going on,” he informed AFP, saying it was “pretty tense and exciting.”

“It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it? I mean how often does an opportunity like this happen?”

Specs of this fashion are sometimes worn by the army — the corporate has had a contract with the US armed forces since 1978, which buys some 25,000 pairs per thirty days. 

That’s along with the pairs Randolph Engineering sells to most people within the United States, the place the aviator look was made well-known by the Eighties Tom Cruise film “Top Gun.”

It takes 200 steps over six weeks to fabricate the “Concorde” fashion, the pair gifted to Putin, which was named after the Twentieth-century supersonic plane. A matte black polarized pair sells on the Randolph web site for $279.   

They are made in a small city within the northeastern state of Massachusetts, and the corporate, based in 1973, boasts of its “handcrafted in the USA” credentials. 

“President Biden, I’m sure, gave those glasses to President Putin as a symbol of our national heritage,” Waszkiewicz stated. 

“And let’s hope it’s the symbol of peace,” he stated.
