Democrats are starting to be afraid of President Joe Biden. Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) was asked if President Joe Biden should run for president in 2024 and she said she didn’t want to answer the question.
Bush was asked, “Do you want to see Biden run for a second term?”
Bush’s aid stepped in and said, “She’s really got to go.”
The reporter said, “That’s an easy question, it’s not going to take long, do you want to see Joe Biden run…”
Bush interrupted, “I don’t want to answer that question because we have not, that’s not, yeah I don’t want to answer that question. Um, I mean, he’s the president and he has the right to run for a second term, absolutely, but I don’t want to, I’d rather you not do that, answer that question.”
Where did Bush’s enthusiasm go?
On January 20, 2021, Bush tweeted, “Congratulations on making history, Madam Vice President @KamalaHarris. I’m excited to partner with you and President @JoeBiden to get our communities the help we need.”
Bush is endorsed by Bernie Sanders (D-VT) for the Democratic primary on August 2. Sanders also endorsed Bush when she won in the 2020 election.
Bush tweeted, “I am proud to work alongside Sen. @BernieSanders to make healthcare a human right, enact a Green New Deal, and fight for justice in the workplace. I’m honored to have his endorsement & look forward to continue building our movement lifting up the power of everyday people.”
Biden is the oldest president that the U.S. has ever had. The White House has continued to say that Biden is running in 2024.
Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted, “To be clear, as the President has said repeatedly, he plans to run in 2024.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been hesitant to throw her support at Biden as well. AOC was asked on CNN if she would give her support to Biden for a 2024 run, and she said, “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. But I think if the president has a vision, and that’s something certainly we’re all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes.”
Beto O’Rourke, who’s running for Texas Governor, has also denied help from national politicians including Biden. O’Rourke said, “I’m not interested in any national politician — anyone outside of Texas — coming into this state to help decide the outcome of this. I think we all want to make sure that we’re working with, listening to and voting with one another here in Texas.”
