Trump Issues Statement Regarding Vice President Biden’s Re-election Bid: Expectations were high that US Vice President Joe Biden will declare his candidacy for president on Tuesday, thrusting him into a fierce new White House campaign at the age of 80 and setting up a possible rematch with Donald Trump.
Vice President Joe Biden told reporters on Monday, “Stay tuned,” when asked about an upcoming White House announcement.
The Democrat was anticipated to make a video announcement, much like he did four years ago when he first declared his intention to run against Trump in 2020.
Biden has no credible adversary inside the Democratic Party after a string of major legislative successes and dramatic foreign policy battles in his first two years in office.
However, he will be subject to intense examination because of his advanced age.
The veteran Democrat’s second term would bring his or her age to 86. Even though he passed a medical examination in February declaring him “fit” to serve as president, many people, including some of his own voters, think he is too old to do the job.
Seventy percent of Americans, and fifty-one percent of Democrats, according to a survey issued by NBC News over the weekend, think he shouldn’t run.
The majority (69%) of those who indicated he shouldn’t run gave age-related worries as a rationale.
Biden’s favorite response to these criticisms is “watch me,” which he uses to direct voters’ attention to his domestic policy victories and his mobilization of a historic Western coalition to aid Ukraine in repelling Russian aggression.
Biden would enjoy the benefits of being the incumbent candidate for the next year and a half while his Republican opponent faces a fractured primary.
Despite being the first sitting or past president to be arrested on criminal charges and the subject of many investigations concerning his effort to reverse 2020 election results in his favor, Trump remains the Republican frontrunner.
On Monday, Trump added his own critique of his previous election opponent.
“With such a calamitous and failed presidency, it is almost inconceivable that Biden would even think of running for reelection,” stated he in a public statement.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the expected Republican rival to Trump, is also a conservative figure but is a striking 20 years younger at the age of 44.
Kamala Harris would make history as the first Black person and the first woman to serve as vice president, and it is generally anticipated that Joe Biden will continue to support her on the November 2024 ticket.
Reconstructing the Middle Class
Biden will meet with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol on Tuesday, highlighting his qualifications in foreign affairs. Yoon Suk Yeol is beginning a state visit to the United States.
If Joe Biden runs for president again in 2020, he would certainly emphasize the need of reviving the American manufacturing sector and creating middle-class employment as part of his platform to win votes.
According to the White House, he will give a speech on the economy on Tuesday at a union meeting in the nation’s capital.
Although it is not a political rally, the topic on the agenda “how his investing in America agenda is bringing manufacturing back, rebuilding the middle class, and creating good-paying union jobs”will likely serve as a central theme of the Democratic platform in 2024.
Boring, but reassuring?
In excess of 15 months have passed with Biden’s popularity ratings below 50%.
However, he has always come through for us in the clutch. According to Biden’s cheerleaders, the Democratic Party’s unexpectedly successful showing in the 2022 midterm legislative elections proved the legitimacy of his name.
However, Biden believes that his moderate, old-fashioned image will be the hidden weapon required in a more extremist period, despite the fact that it may make him look bland in comparison to Trump.
