In a recent interview with CBS’ Margaret Brennan, Vice President Kamala Harris shared confidence in her and President Joe Biden’s prospects for re-election in 2024. Here’s the whole story.
Is Trump the Front-Runner for the Republican Nomination?
The discussion centered on the potential candidacy of former President Donald Trump, who is considered a front-runner for the Republican nomination.
Brennan said, “You were dismissive of some of the Republican criticism of you and the President. When you look at current polling, the front-runner for a Republican nomination is the former president, the 45th president.”
“We will win the election… we will win re-election,” Harris replied.
“There’s Too Much at Stake and the American People Know It”
“There’s too much at stake and the American people know it,” she added.
The Vice President’s remarks come amid interviews and public appearances in Jakarta, where she has addressed various topics, including President Biden’s age.
Harris also fielded questions about her preparedness to step into the president role should the need arise.
Harris responded to concerns about President Biden’s age and said, “Joe Biden is going to be fine, so that is not going to come to fruition.”
“This Should Be Everyone’s Nightmare”
“But let us also understand that every vice president — every vice president — understands that when they take the oath they must be very clear about the responsibility they may have to take over the job of being president. I’m no different,” she added.
However, the internet was not optimistic with many sharing “This should be everyone’s nightmare,” and this is “everyone’s greatest fear.”
One social media user wrote, “Pretty bold statement considering the current shape of the Country. Maybe the fix is in… Again.”
“God Forbid That This Idiot Becomes Our President”
Another user added, “God forbid that this idiot becomes our president. She’s lucky she can remember her own name. Anybody who has the track record she has should be of concern for all.”
A third user commented, “I am a Democrat and I do not want them to win again. Nothing is getting done and they do not know how to run our country.”
A fourth added, “Not going to happen unless a solid third-party candidate enters the race or if Trump gets the nomination… But he’s not. Right now, I don’t see Biden beating any of the other GOP Candidates.”
