Biden is reported to be running for re-election, and as long as Trump lives, Biden has made it his duty to defeat him.
New York Magazine has the inside story of Democrats and 2024:
Biden is sustained by his contempt for Trump and the imperative to keep him out of office. “If Trump lives,” says one veteran adviser, “Biden runs.” But in recent weeks, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — widely regarded as the second favorite in the 2024 GOP field — has risen up Biden’s hierarchy of disgust, and some the President’s advisers have considered whether it makes sense to intensify the politically sharp fights they have started picking with him.
Still, Trump is the one Biden can’t stop thinking about. Whatever his party doubts, his inner circle believes that “if it’s Trump, the Democrats will circle the wagons,” as a former aide puts it. “We’ve done this before. Yeah, everything seems bad, but when it’s game time and you’ve got a fascist up there, everyone’s going to be like, ‘Let’s do this.'”
Biden will ensure Trump never returns to the White House
Biden has made it his mission to ensure Donald Trump never sits behind the desk in the Oval Office again.
Mike Pence fails to win the Republican nomination. Ron DeSantis will not win the Republican nomination. If Donald Trump is alive and in the Republican primary field in 2024, he will be the Republican presidential nominee.
Trump controls the Republican National Committee and in 2020 indicated a willingness to use RNC rules to keep challengers out of the Republican primary. Expect him to try to clear the field for himself in 2024.
Democrats are fooling themselves if they think there is another Democrat out there who can beat Trump in a general election.
President Biden has Trump’s number. It’s been on Donald Trump’s mind for years, and issues like inflation, gas prices, and the supply chain will long since be resolved by the 2024 election.
Trump is a fascist and he is the greatest domestic threat to American democracy since the Civil War.
It’s an American political monster film. Joe Biden won’t stop until he drives a stake through the heart of Trumpism and saves democracy.
