While Biden has grown notorious for acting increasingly hostile during press conferences, he raised even more eyebrows after openly encouraging former President Donald J. Trump to run against him in 2024.
Biden’s encouragement comes on the heels of multiple dozens of Democrats indicating that they wished for a different Democrat to run in the next presidential election, given Biden’s abysmal handling of domestic and foreign affairs.
However, Biden refuses to acknowledge reality, recently insisting that the Democrats want him to run in spite of no high level Democrat emerging and vocally endorsing his next bid for the presidency.
This refusal was clear from a recent performance on TV, wherein Biden proclaimed that he would not feel any “disappointment” if Trump opted to run again.
“I’m not predicting it, but I would not be disappointed,” Biden blared on a local Israeli outlet. The remarks on Israeli television are ironic, given Biden’s effective buttressing of Iran’s nuclear ambitions, especially against the context of Trump’s avowed support of the Middle Eastern nation.
Biden also added that many other factors might determine the future, taking the opportunity to boast about his extended experience in politics.
“The one thing I know about politics – and American politics in particular – is there’s no way to predict what’s going to happen,” Biden boomed, “I’m not even halfway through my term yet, and so there’s a lot of room to figure out what’s going to happen.”
In the meantime, political strategist Dick Morris has all but announced Trump’s intentions to run in 2024, arguing that the former president has remained somewhat taciturn given present campaign finance laws.
“He can’t say he is because of the campaign’s finances,” Morris remarked, “[which] means the money he spends on his rallies comes out of his TV ads and he doesn’t want to do that.”
That said, Trump does not appear to mind if Morris unofficial spreads the word, with Morris noting that the MAGA president “[is] not one of those guys that hides it.”
