Compare Biden's congenial, collegial approach to Trump's which consists of bullying and threats.

Johnsonís support for the aid bill, part of a package that could pass the House as soon as this weekend, would grant Biden a major foreign policy victory that has eluded him for a year. It would stabilize a Ukrainian defense running low on munitions and bracing for a renewed Russian offensive in early summer.

Itís also validation, Biden aides and allies said, of a White House strategy focused on slowly courting Johnson behind the scenes while letting him find his own path to a solution ó even if it meant weathering frequent setbacks and building frustration within its own party. . . .

The administration held several closed-door briefings for Johnson and other lawmakers to update them on the deteriorating situation in Ukraine, starting just days after Johnson became speaker. . . .

Biden aidesí effort to privately cajole Johnson toward action mirrors the approach that the president and his advisers have taken on other high-profile issues. It stems from a belief that they have a better shot at success by persuading skeptics rather than strong-arming them.

    A political genius maybe. But I suspect that Joe Biden in his long political career, and in his life learned that you can catch more bees with honey than with vinegar.

    or you just bribe.

    And, you continue to believe in the tooth fairy.
