After nearly two years of speculation and rumor, Donald Trump has made it official. The former president announced this week that he will be running for office again in 2024. His announcement officially kicks off the 2024 Presidential Election. Long before any other Republican gets into the race, he is already hitting the ground running.
This means Trump might end up facing off against Joe Biden once again. Biden should be very worried. Trump had a stellar four years. Meanwhile, Biden’s first two years in office have been pathetic. He has a low approval rating as millions blame him for numerous crises. Biden has maintained he’s running for re-election. But when asked about Trump’s news, this is all he could say.
President Joe Biden responded to former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign announcement with two words when prompted by a reporter on the sidelines of the G20 summit.
Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron were asked early Wednesday morning local time if they had a reaction to Trump announcing his 2024 presidential bid.
“Not really,” Biden said before turning away.
Macron did not respond.
Biden and Macron had just planted mangroves with other world leaders at the G20 summit when the president made the remark…
In his speech, [Trump] criticized inflation, record-breaking gas prices, the situation at the border and crime under the Biden administration, contrasting Biden’s legacy with what he feels are his own achievements in his first term. [Source: Daily Caller]
Yeah, Joe. Don’t bother responding to this big news. You have mangroves to plant! When reporters asked Joe if he had a reaction to Trump’s announcement, all that Joe could say was “Not really.” Uh… really, Biden? This man can easily beat you, now that you don’t have COVID to hide behind.
Yet Biden can’t even come up with a real response?
Don’t be fooled. This is because Joe Biden didn’t have a cheat card from his handlers telling him what to say. Biden is lost when he isn’t being fed words by his staff. When left to his own devices, he is either confused or says something wildly inappropriate.
In reality, Biden is terrified. He knows that his 2020 “victory” was a mistake and that millions of Americans want his head. Inflation, high gas prices, an open border, and runaway crime are Biden’s fault. He lost the House this year and his agenda will stall for the next two years. He has good reason to worry about 2024.
Yet he can’t even muster up more than two words to address the man who might crush him.
Nobody knows what 2024 will bring. We can’t even say if Trump will win the GOP nomination. But if Biden is really serious about running again, he can’t just say “Not really” and expect that to fly. If he wants to convince voters he’s a real leader, not a DNC puppet, he’ll say something.
But all we get are crickets.
