As President Biden stated, he would employ “legitimate” Constitutional tactics to prevent the 2024 election victory of Donald Trump.
Biden held a “victory lap” press conference after the midterm elections, despite the fact that Republicans were expected to gain the House and impeach him. It is too early to determine if the Republican Party will win the Senate. A reporter inquired as to how Biden would explain “that the former President will not return.”
“How do you reassure [world leaders] … that the former President will not return or that his political movement, which is still very strong, will not once again take power in the United States?” the reporter asked.
The idea that Trump’s political movement is strong is laughable to Biden.
“Well, we just have to demonstrate that he will not take power by — if we — if he does run,” Biden declared. “I’m making sure he, under legitimate efforts of our Constitution, does not become the next President again.”

Other than competing for re-election, it is unclear what ‘legal’ Constitutional measures Biden may take to prevent Trump from assuming the presidency in 2024. The lackluster performance of Republicans in the midterm elections has made this situation more probable.
Biden applauded the election results, stating, “While the press and the pundits [were] predicting a giant red wave, it didn’t happen.”
He asserted that “Democrats had a strong night” despite the likelihood that the GOP would ultimately reclaim control of the House, and the fact that the Democrats still have a chance in the Senate.

“Former President Donald Trump has teased a big announcement this coming Tuesday, with speculation being that it will involve announcing his presidential campaign in 2024,” the Political Insider reported.
At the press conference, a newly confident Biden suggested he would be running again as well.
When a reporter explained that two-thirds of Americans in exit polls indicate they do not want to see Biden run in 2024, the President responded: “Watch me.”
Biden’s latest comments are reminiscent of those he made in the midst of the 2020 presidential election, suggesting the military could be used to escort Trump out of the White House.

“I promise, I am absolutely convinced they [the military] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” Biden replied when it was implied that Trump would not leave voluntarily. CONTINUE READING…
