(TargetLiberty.org) – CNN host Jake appeared to be shocked by President Biden’s recent revelations at a fundraiser event in Boston that if former President Donald Trump was not running for reelection, then he most likely would have also not run.
During the event at a private home, Biden told those in attendance that he was not sure whether he would be running for reelection if Trump was not running.
Tapper stated that this was a shocking admission by the President, and proceeded to ask David Chalian, a CNN political director, what he thought regarding these comments.
Chalian argued that what Biden had stated was a clear view of what went into his decision to pursue re-election despite the political standing he currently has, especially considering that his position in the polls is not great. He added that many Democrats were concerned about Biden’s age and that there were many who had questioned whether or not he was the best candidate for the party. Chalian also pointed out that this brings up a lot of questions about what Biden will choose to do if Trump does not win the GOP nomination.
He proceeded to question whether Biden would reconsider the re-election effort if his key rationale for running is Trump also being in the race. He added that this will also give the former President the opportunity to argue that Biden’s focus is on Trump more than it is on the election or anything else.
However, as he pointed out, if Biden is currently focused on bringing back many of his coalition of voters, then it would make sense that he provides them with a reminder of the contrast between him and Trump. He argued that making Trump appear as the target could help him rally his supporters once again.
