Trump weighs in on Biden replacement talk

 June 29, 2024

Former President Donald Trump just weighed in on the rumors that the Democratic Party is going to replace President Joe Biden, following his poor debate performance, on their presidential ticket.  

According to Fox News, Trump's opinion is that it is not going to happen.

In other words, Trump believes that Biden, despite his poor debate performance, will still be the Democrats' presidential nominee.

"Yes, I think he will be the nominee," Trump told Fox.


At the moment, it is extremely unclear whether Trump is right or wrong about this one.

One thing that we can say for certain is that certain segments of the Democratic Party are currently making a strong push to have Biden replaced. This includes many leftist news outlets, including the New York Times, leftist television news personalities, and even some individuals who have been Biden allies.

But, major pushback to this idea came on Friday from none other than former President Barack Obama.

Obama wrote:

Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know. But this election is still a choice between someone who has fought for ordinary folks his entire life and someone who only cares about himself. Between someone who tells the truth; who knows right from wrong and will give it to the American people straight — and someone who lies through his teeth for his own benefit. Last night didn’t change that, and it’s why so much is at stake in November.

Now, it appears that other top Democrats are coming to Biden's defense as well.

Biden's statement

Biden, himself, released his own statement on his debate performance, a statement that sounded very similar to the one made by Obama.

Biden said:

I know I’m not a young man. I don’t walk as easily as I used to. I don’t talk as smoothly as I used to. I don’t debate as well as I used to, but I know what I do know: I know how to tell the truth. I know right from wrong. And I know how to do this job. I know how to get things done. And I know what millions of Americans know: When you get knocked down, you get back up.

Biden, here, made a couple of big concessions, including that he is "not a young man" anymore and that he got "knocked down" by Trump.

It remains to be seen whether these statements from Obama and Biden will be enough to silence the Biden replacement talks. At the time of this writing, the answer appears to be no.

The Democrats' big problem, though, is that they don't seem to have an obvious replacement for Biden. This, by itself, may end up being the reason why the Democrats stick with Biden.
