Biden said he is running for president again because of Trump

Dec 6, 2023

US President Joe Biden said he probably would not have run for a second term if Donald Trump had not had a chance to lead the country for the second time. According to Biden, the former president seriously threatens American democracy.

This was reported by Bloomberg.

“If Trump wasn’t running, I’m not sure I’d be running,” Biden told donors Tuesday at a campaign fundraiser in Massachusetts. “But we cannot let him win for the sake of our country”.

Joe Biden has faced constant doubts from voters about his decision to run for another four years due to his advanced age. The head of the White House tried to mitigate these concerns by claiming that Trump would destroy US democratic institutions, repeal laws that allow more people to access healthcare, and impose additional restrictions on abortion.

At the same time, the current American president has repeatedly stated that Donald Trump's decision to run for president in 2020 was prompted by the reaction to the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Then, after one of the protesters was killed, Trump said that there were “very fine people” on both sides of the demonstrations.

The president’s advisers have said he is the best candidate to defeat Trump a second time, backing up his decision to seek reelection, the publication notes.
