Biden Gifts Putin Custom Sunglasses from Massachuestts

Putin's Pair Made in Randolph

RANDOLPH, M.A. (WLNE) – President Joe Biden had a goodwill gift for Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on Wednesday.

He gave him a pair of custom aviators made by Randolph USA located in Randolph, Massachusetts.

The owner, Peter Waszkiewicz, says his phone has been ringing off the hook and social media is going crazy too.  Biden, of course, is a fan of aviators.  He is often wearing them outside.

Randolph USA sells sunglasses all over the world and they’ve been manufacturing for the U.S. military for four decades.

President Biden also gave Putin a crystal sculpture of an American Bison.  It was made by the company Steuben Glass in Corning, New York.
