Trump Gets Candid On Biden’s 2024 Bid and Kamala Harris In Interview

President Trump

During an interview on ‘Hannity,’ former President Trump weighed in on how he thinks Joe Biden performed during the debate, as well his timetable for announcing who would be running with him this time around.

Even though a few in his own party have said he should drop out after last month’s rocky debate, Trump sensed “Biden is not going anywhere” when it comes to 2024. He said to Fox News host Sean Hannity: “It looks to me like he may very well stay, and he’s got an ego, and he doesn’t want to quit. He doesn’t want to do that. It just looks to me like that’s what he wants.”

Biden told House Democrats in a letter on Monday that he is remaining “in the race” and focused entirely upon beating Trump this November.

“We had a Democratic nomination process and the voters have spoken clearly and decisively. I received over 14 million votes, 87% of the votes cast across the entire nominating process. I have nearly 3,900 delegates, making me the presumptive nominee of our party by a wide margin,” Biden’s letter read.

“I can respond to all this by saying clearly and unequivocally: I wouldn’t be running again if I did not absolutely believe I was the best person to beat Donald Trump in 2024,” Biden continued to write.

Trump even speculated what would happen if Biden were to step down. 

“I think she’s an ineffective person. She was in charge of the border, she’s never been there, she didn’t do a good job, and she hasn’t done a job on a lot of things. It would seem to me that from a political standpoint, that’s who they’re going with. They’re not even talking about alternatives,” he told Hannity.

Trump also said that with the high delegate count Biden is now in a position of power. If the party truly wants him out, that’d have to use the 25th Amendment.

“I think unless they use the 25th amendment, which they’d use in a different sense, he has all the power. He has the delegates. He doesn’t have to get out. There’s nothing they can do to get him out,” Trump said. “So, he’ll get the nomination.”

House Democrats also talked about Biden’s re-election race and debate performance in a virtual meeting over the weekend. Two sources present during the lawmakers-only phone conversation told Fox News that top Democrats on House committees said they wanted Biden to step aside.

However, many top Democrats disagree. “I made clear publicly the day after the debate that I support President Joe Biden and the Democratic ticket,” Jeffries said. “My position has not changed.”
