Bill Richardson Slams Obama for Not Having Personal Relationships with World Leaders

Wednesday, on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Live,” former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Energy Secretary in the Clinton administration, Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM), said President Barack Obama has “got to find a way to engage personally.”

The two-term Governor of New Mexico said, “A lot of it is personal relationships. You’ve got to find a way to engage personally, even with some of these countries whose leaders you don’t like, you detest. You’ve got to find ways that they have some kind of understanding with you, some kind of trust. I think the president has made some laudable movements in that direction, but, you know, you’ve got to build the relationships. I wish Putin and Obama had a stronger personal relationship. They don’t.”
