A 21-year-old Democrat, Jahmiel Jackson, recently shared his perspective on Fox News, revealing his growing inclination toward former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election due to perceived incompetence within the Biden administration. Here’s the whole story.
Switching His Vote
While he had previously supported Joe Biden, Jackson’s evolving views stem from a series of events and actions that have raised doubts about President Biden’s leadership.
He said, “I’ve seen no form of accountability in this administration. I think this is what’s going to change my vote from formerly Joe Biden to Donald Trump.”
One pivotal moment for Jackson was the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, which he viewed as poorly executed and without sufficient accountability.
Disrespect During a Funeral
“I have seen the pullout of Afghanistan from Joe Biden. And then I watched him check his watch during the funeral of the servicemen. And I think if we were to go to war, I’m prime age to be drafted.”
“And I don’t want him to check his watch while they’re burying me. I don’t believe that he’s a competent commander-in-chief. And then he’d probably blame my death on climate change in the same way he blamed the pullout in Afghanistan on Donald Trump,” he added.
“Make a Decision and Stick to It”
Stacey Fox, a Republican voter, echoed Jackson’s sentiments, emphasizing the importance of electing a president capable of making tough and decisive decisions.
“Who’s going to have enough tenacity to make a decision and stick to it?” she asked.
“Joe Biden can’t do that. I think Donald Trump, with a really strong vice president, will make those decisions and will pull our country out of the dumps that we’re moving into. And I’m really afraid of it if it doesn’t change,” she added.
Lacking Mental Soundness
A recent FOX News Poll added further weight to concerns about President Biden’s competency.
The poll indicated that 61% of respondents believe President Biden lacks the mental soundness required for his role, with a significant increase in this sentiment over the past few years.
Seen as “an Insult” to Young Voters
Young voters like Kristen Jackson and Marya Ruth Dunning, who joined in, highlighted their preference for presidential candidates who prioritize competency, efficiency, and honesty over other factors such as age or identity politics.
Marya Ruth Dunning said, “I think that the way to get young voters is definitely not to tell us that we’re stupid. And especially with Biden being unable to string a sentence together and Kamala barely being able to herself, it’s just an insult.”
Walk Off Into the Sunset
Jackson expressed a willingness to support any candidate capable of effectively fulfilling the responsibilities of the presidency.
He said, “It’s only a matter of time before they [the media] start endorsing someone else.”
“I think they’re just giving him this off-ramp and telling him, ‘Just say it’s your age and walk off into the sunset,'” he added.
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “In reality…people are dumping Trump because he has shown himself to be a massive criminal.”
Another user added, “Not a chance. No young Dem idealist would ever embrace anything like Trump.”
A third user commented, “Oh, what a loss for the Democratic Party. If we go to war and I am drafted, I don’t want Joe checking his watch while I am being buried.”
