Trump says he doesn’t think Biden will run for second term

Donald Trump has said he does not believe Joe Biden will run again for president and described the Democrat as being “so bad”, in further remarks about the 2024 presidential election.

The former Republican president told hosts ofThe Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show on Tuesday that he did not approve of Mr Biden’s record and did not believe his 2020 opponent would run again in 2024.

“I don’t think he’s going to run, or I don’t think he’s — you know, he could run and maybe somebody would run against him, and that’s very rare, that something like that would happen,” said Mr Trump, who was beaten by the Democrat.

“There’s been so much damage done that I think if he turned out to be George Washington and Abraham Lincoln combined,” the Republican said. “I think the net result is so bad, I just don’t think he can do it.”

Mr Trump also told the podcast he did not believe Mr Biden’s 2020 running mate and vice president Kamala Harris would be liked by voters and speculated: “She doesn’t seem to be very popular in the polls.”

He added: “I was leading (in 2020). I thought I, you know, was leading a lot the day of the election, too, right. I was. But you gotta be very careful with the election. You’re gotta make sure the vote count is honest. So I don’t see him running. I see her running.”

Although recent polls have shown Mr Biden with an approval rating of 41 per cent, the figure is still higher than Mr Trump’s worst approval rating…
