According to a New York Times report that President Biden is upset by questions surrounding his run for the presidency in 2024, he and top aides consider the speculation to be “lack of respect from their party” and the media.
The Times reported that “multiple sources claimed the president and his circle were confused by Democrats’ discussions regarding a Plan B, when the only person who defeated Donald J. Trump has made it clear he intends for a second term”.
According to reports, the president told his aides that it’s like he was experiencing a replay of a situation in which other members of his party had expressed doubts about his abilities and age.
The New York Times recently reported that many Democrats were concerned about President Trump’s leadership abilities heading into 2024, as Americans are facing high gas prices and rising inflation.
According to the outlet, the president blames the “same doubters” for the current round.
According to the New York Times, critics believe Biden doesn’t possess the temperament to fight in partisan conflict.
Cedric Richmond stated to the outlet that “a section” of the Democratic Party wanted a different candidate and that he was certain they would love to see their candidate back in action.
According to the New York Times, some lawmakers believe that bidding on Biden’s 2024 speculation can help them stand out.
Joe Cunningham is a Democratic candidate for South Carolina governor and is currently running against Gov. CNN reported that Henry McMaster told CNN that President Obama should give up the Democratic nomination to “a new generation” of leadership.
“Mr. Biden’s top advisors deny the notion that an open primary would make Democrats stronger standard-bearers. They are concerned that his retirement will set off a sprint towards the left. The New York Times reported that while Kamala Harris, Vice President, would most likely win substantial support, it’s unlikely she will clear the field. This could lead to a messy race which could widen party divisions on issues such as race, gender, and ideology.”
According to the Biden administration, the president plans to run again. In an interview with CNN, Vice President Kamala Harris stated Monday that the president will be running for re-election in 2024. She also said that she would be his “ticket partner”.
