Who is Kaitlan Collins dating? Joe Biden says CNN reporter in 'wrong business'
President Joe Biden ended his first summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin with a press conference on Wednesday, June 16, with apparent irritability when CNN's Kaitlan Collins asked him a question. “Why are you so confident (Putin) will change his behavior, Mr President?” Collins questioned as he was walking off the stage in Geneva.
Biden and Putin had kicked off their G7 summit with a handshake outside the Geneva villa where the two leaders planned to discuss wide-ranging bilateral issues between the United States and Russia. The two leaders were all set to meet for up to five hours for a conversation around cyber-attacks, election meddling, rights abuses and several other contentious issues that are on the agenda.
But Collin's questions led to a heated back-and-forth between her and Biden during the press conference on Wednesday, June 16, which led to Biden trying to shut her up by saying "you're in the wrong business". But this could not have been farther from the truth, because Collins is closer to the world of politics than what the president knows. Here's all you need to know about the journalist's personal life.
Who is Kaitlan Collins' fiance?
Collins is an extremely private person and little is known about her love life. But rumor has it that the journalist is engaged to William Douglas, founder of the Crimson Primary Care in Texas. Facts Buddy reports that the couple may have been dating since 2016. Douglas is a politician too. He ran in the 2020 election for the Texas House of Representatives to represent District 113, pitting himself against Rhetta Bowers. However, he lost that race.
On Collins' Instagram profile, there are a few photos of her with her beau. She did, however, post a photo of the couple in May 2016. Douglas, too, is low-key about his personal life and shared his most recent photo with Collins in January 2017. According to most sources, the duo is still together, but they have chosen to keep their relationship quiet, The Net reported. Douglas is a graduate of Oklahoma University and owns a number of small pharmacies in Dallas. He also has his own pharmacy called Crimson Care Pharmacy Group.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Douglas stated: “I grew up in a blue-collar family that lived in a mobile home in a rural community. I paid my way through school, and worked hard to manage and now own a small business.”
Biden apologized to Collins
After replying to CNN's Collins' question about his meeting with Putin by saying he's "not convinced" Putin will change his conduct, Biden apologized. Collins had asked: "Given his past behavior has not changed and in that press conference after sitting down with you for several hours, he denied any involvement in cyberattacks. He downplayed human rights abuses. He even refused to say Alexei Navalny’s name. So how does that account to a constructive meeting, as President Putin put it?”
To this, Biden had replied: "If you don’t understand that, you are in the wrong business.” Collins later said on CNN: “That is completely unnecessary. He did not need to apologize… It is just our job to ask the president questions. That is the business we are in.”
