President Joe Biden took a swipe at former president Donald Trump saying Thursday that he would welcome a 2024 rematch against Trump despite his floundering poll numbers.
Biden said: “The next election, I’d be very fortunate if I had that same man running against me. One of the things that I take some solace from is I don’t think you’ll find any European leader who thinks that I am not up to the job. And I mean that sincerely.
“But it’s not an illogical question for someone to ask. I say to people at home, ‘Imagine if we sat and watched the doors of the Bundestag broken down and police officers killed and hundreds of people storming in?’
“Or imagine if we saw that happening in the British Parliament or whatever, how would we feel?”
Biden kept rambling talking about Trump saying, “He was asked what he thought. He said they are very good people on both sides. And that’s when I decided I wasn’t going to be quiet any longer.”
“When I ran this time, and I think the American press, whether they look at me favorably or unfavorably, acknowledge this: I made a determination nothing is worth, no election is worth my not doing exactly what I think is the right thing.
“Not a joke. I’m too long in the tooth to fool with this any longer,” he said.
“We’re a long way off in elections — a long way off.
“My focus of any election is on making sure that we retain the House and the United States Senate so that I have the room to continue to do the things that I’ve been able to do in terms of grow the economy and deal in a rational way with American foreign policy and lead the world.
“The first G7 meeting I attended, like the one I did today, was in Great Britain.
“And I sat down and I said, ‘America’s back.’
“And one of my counterparts, colleagues, who is a head of state, said, ‘For how long?
“For how long?’ And so I don’t blame, I don’t criticize anybody for asking that question.”
