Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Joe Biden following news he may formally announce his plans to run for reelection in 2024 on Tuesday.
Biden will ask voters to give him more time to ‘finish the job’ he began, but in a lengthy statement on Monday night, Trump decried the very idea that Biden would even stand.
‘With such a calamitous and failed presidency, it is almost inconceivable that Biden would even think of running for reelection.
‘You know what happened in the last election: they cheated, and they rigged the election,’ Trump railed.
Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a second term, is betting his first-term legislative achievements and more than 50 years of experience in Washington will count for more than concerns over his age.
He faces a smooth path to winning his party’s nomination, with no serious Democratic rivals but he’s still set to face a hard-fought struggle to retain the presidency in a bitterly divided nation.
True to form, Trump did not hold back as he called out Biden’s unsuitability – and said he would be the Radical Democrats’ worst nightmare if it came to it.
‘You could take the five worst presidents in American history, and put them together, and they would not have done the damage Joe Biden has done to our Nation in just a few short years. Not even close,’ Trump’s statement began.
‘Thanks to Joe Biden’s socialist spending calamity, American families are being decimated by the worst inflation in half a century. Banks are failing. Our currency is crashing and the dollar will soon no longer be the world standard, which will be our greatest defeat in over 200 years,’ Trump continued.
‘But I promise you this: when I stand on that debate stage and compare our records, it will be Radical Democrats’ worst nightmare because there’s never been a record as bad as they have, and our country has never been through so much.’
Trump then turned his attention to the border and the numbers of illegal immigrants flocking across on a daily basis.
‘Under my leadership, we had the most secure border in U.S. history, by far. Never had a border like this. Under Biden, the Southern Border has been abolished—and millions of illegal aliens have been released into our communities.
‘What’s happening now is beyond belief. They’re coming in from mental institutions and prisons… and being dumped into the United States.’
