President Joe Biden will meet with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland on Wednesday and U.S. officials say it could last four to five hours. Biden said he’s going to “make clear to President Putin that there are areas where we can cooperate if he chooses.” A source tells CNN Biden will raise an array of concerns including ransomware and human rights during the summit. The New York Times Foreign Affairs Columnist Thomas Friedman tells Anderson Cooper “our problem is Vladimir Putin has become America’s bad ex-boyfriend from hell” and we would “really like to date someone else.” Plus, the U.S. reached 600,000 Covid-19 deaths as the new, dangerous Delta variant is on the rise. Both New York and California have reopened and dropped most of their restrictions. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy joins AC360 to discuss the grim death toll and just how worried people should be about the Delta variant.
