While there are growing rumblings over which candidate Republicans should nominate for president in 2024, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just made clear who she wants to see on her party’s ticket.
During a weekend interview, Pelosi said President Joe Biden should seek a second term in office.
According to the Daily Caller, Pelosi gave Biden her endorsement on Saturday while speaking with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos.
“A great president”
When Stephanopoulos asked if she thought Biden should be the Democratic nominee, Pelosi responded, “Yes I do. President Biden has been a great president for our country.”
“He has accomplished so much, over 10 million jobs under his leadership — working with the private sector, of course,” she continued
“He has done so many things that are so great that we’d need a lot more show to tell it, but he’s put money in people’s pockets, vaccines in their arms, children back to school, people back to work, for starters,” the House speaker insisted.

Pelosi then pointed to Biden’s having signed the CHIPS Act, a $280 billion piece of legislation aimed at increasing domestic production of semiconductors.
“We are no longer reliant on those who withhold products that enable us to manufacture in our country,” the longtime San Francisco Democrat boasted.
More Biden gaffes
Unmentioned was the fact that should he be re-elected, the president will be 86 years old by the time that his second term ends. Also left undiscussed were the growing signs that Biden is suffering from cognitive decline, with the most recent example coming this past weekend.
Fox News reported that Biden confused Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen with Colombia’s head of state as he spoke at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Saturday.
“I look forward to building even stronger progress than we’ve already made,” Biden said, adding, “I want to thank the prime minister for Colombia’s leadership as ASEAN chair.
