(RoyalPatriot.com )- First lady Jill Biden revealed she hadn’t yet spoken with her husband, President Joe Biden, about his political aspirations for 2024 during an NBC’s “Today” appearance on Tuesday.
“Not yet,” she answered. She said he’d been a touch too busy. She said not yet, but there will undoubtedly be conversations.
She did say that she feels he should run again.
Jill continued, “You know, it is stressful.” “But look at everything Joe’s accomplished. He has adhered to his word and done as promised. He simply needs to keep moving, in my opinion.”
The Bidens continue to tout this array of largely invisible accomplishments. He’s busied chiefly himself with undoing the work of his predecessor, reregulating what Trump deregulated, and striking down laws that he accomplished.
In Jill: A Biography of the First Lady, she describes feeling “burned” by her husband’s first run for the presidency. Jill Biden resisted advisers, including Ron Klain, now White House chief of staff, who pushed him to mount another campaign in 2004.
“All these men – and they were mostly men – coming to our home,” she said. “You know, ‘You’ve got to run, you’ve got to run.’ I wanted no part of it.”
It’s odd that in 2004, when Joe was 18 years younger, Jill did not want Biden to run for her selfish reasons. In 2022, when it’s clear her husband is in cognitive decline, Jill is eager to thrust this sleepy old man into a role he is not performing well.
Meanwhile, more robust and eager politicians are lining up at the chance Biden will do the right thing and step away.
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is determined to run for president in 2024 if President Joe Biden declines to seek reelection.
If Biden declares he will not run for president in 2024, Newsom intends to announce his intention to do so after the 2019 midterm elections, according to sources close to the governor.
News of Newsom’s potential presidential run comes as Biden, who had previously said he would run in 2024, has since changed his mind, saying it is “far too early to make that type of judgment.”
According to reports, some officials in the Democratic Party have also said the president shouldn’t run for reelection.
