Now we see where President Biden’s priorities are…
During remarks to donors at one of the fundraisers he attended on Tuesday in Massachusetts the President said he doubted he would seek a second term in the White House if Donald Trump was not also running for President.
“If Trump wasn’t running, I’m not sure I’d be running. But we cannot let him win,” Biden said, according to a press pool report from the event.
Another reporter also asked if Trump were to drop out of the race if Biden would consider doing the same.
“Would you drop out if Trump drops out?” the reporter asked.
“No, not now,” President Biden replied.
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), who is running a challenge against Biden for the Democrat Party’s 2024 nomination, responded to Biden’s quote on Tuesday, saying on X, “Says the candidate with lower approval figures and losing to Trump in every poll of consequence. It’s downright delusional.”
Trump has been narrowly topping Biden in head-to-head polls taken over the past several weeks, including in battleground states.
President Biden’s age and leadership abilities have cast serious doubts among Americans that Biden is the right man for the job. Even former Obama adviser David Axelrod has openly questioned if it would be “wise” for Biden to back out of the race now.
Trump has dominated the polls thus far, however, his numerous legal battles are cause for concern.
