Trump Believes Biden’s Ego Will Keep Him In 2024 Presidential Race

Former President Donald Trump has predicted that President Joe Biden will remain the Democratic nominee for the 2024 presidential election, citing Biden’s ego as the driving force behind his decision. In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Trump expressed his views on Biden’s determination to stay in the race despite increasing pressure from within his party to step down.

“It looks to me like he may very well stay in,” Trump said. “He’s got an ego and he doesn’t want to quit.” Trump also suggested that First Lady Jill Biden and Hunter Biden are influencing the president’s decision. “I noticed she really seems to be having a good time and I’m hearing that Hunter is calling the shots. So this isn’t necessarily a very positive thing for our country. But I think he, you know, might very well stay in.”

Hunter Biden’s presence at the White House during a recent address on the Supreme Court’s immunity decision has raised questions about his role in the administration. Trump implied that Hunter’s influence might be a factor in Biden’s decision-making.

Amid growing concerns over Biden’s mental fitness and performance in a recent debate, Trump argued that stepping down would be a blow to Biden’s pride. “Nobody wants to give [the presidency] up that way,” Trump stated, adding that Biden would likely “feel badly about himself for a long time” if he were to withdraw.

Trump assured that his campaign is ready to face Biden but also criticized Vice President Kamala Harris, who could step in if Biden steps down. “She hasn’t done a good job on a lot of things,” Trump said.

Expressing his concerns about the current administration, Trump warned, “We’re heading into World War III, in my opinion, with this man semi-running things because he’s not running things. The people that surround the Oval Office, the people that surround the Resolute Desk, that beautiful Resolute Desk, they’re really running things in Washington.”

Reflecting on Biden’s recent debate performance, Trump described it as incoherent. “They weren’t even answers. They were just words put together, they had no meaning or sense,” he said.

The Biden campaign responded to Trump’s interview by criticizing his record and reaffirming Biden’s commitment to the race. Campaign spokesman James Singer stated, “He is still a habitual liar, still a 34-time convicted criminal, still running on his Project 2025 agenda to destroy America, make himself a dictator on day one, rip away our rights, and raise costs on the middle class to give tax cuts to the wealthy and price-gouging corporations — and most importantly, still going to lose this November to Joe Biden.”

As the Republican National Convention approaches, Trump indicated he has yet to finalize his vice presidential nominee but plans to announce it soon. “I think probably within the next week, week and a half. Probably sometime, I’d love to do it during the convention,” he said, adding, “I think everybody’s going to be very, very happy.”
