White House Democrats signal they won’t support Biden in 2024

There is a lot of ground to cover between now and then, according to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in reaction to Rep. Dean Phillips’ (D-Minn.) declaration that he will not back President Biden if he runs for reelection, according to The Hill.

“The president intends to run in 2024 — we are a ways away from 2024. We are going to continue to focus on doing the business of the American people, by delivering for families, by lowering costs for families, as we have seen,” Jean-Pierre said.

The developing Senate agreement on a comprehensive tax reform and climate plan as well as the $280 billion semiconductor chips and science bill that is on its way to his desk were touted as two legislative victories for Biden this week.

“Those are the things that we’re going to continue to focus on and much more,” she said. “And so, right now, 2024 is so far away.”

Phillips argued Thursday that the nation might be “well-served by a new generation” of Democrats, indicating his frustration with Biden’s age. He also said that he believed “most of my colleagues” would agree with his opinion.

Biden mentioned 2024 in an interview earlier this month, saying he wouldn’t be upset if he faced off against former President Trump once again. The White House has reaffirmed that the president intends to run for reelection.

In regards to running for office again in 2024, Biden will be 81 years old and hasn’t been able to avoid concerns about his advanced age. Despite the president’s insistence that Democrats want him to run, a recent poll revealed that 64% of Democrats would prefer another member of their party to stand for office in the upcoming election.
