According to CNN, the Biden administration has offered to exchange Viktor Bout, who is one of the most dangerous weapons dealers in history, as part of a potential deal to secure the release of two Americans held by Russia, WNBA player Brittney Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan.

After the news, American basketball sportscaster Daniel John Dakich shared his thoughts on the issue: “When Donald Trump wanted American athletes out of China, he simply got it done. He didn’t have to trade for the Merchant of Death.”
