Former President Donald Trump is done playing the nice guy. He’s on a mission to clear his name.
That’s when Trump smacked Joe Biden across the face with this stunning reality check.
The 2024 Presidential election is shaping up to be unlike any other Presidential election in American history for a number of reasons.
Joe Biden was the oldest elected President ever when he “won” in 2020, and winning a second term would cement that legacy as he’d be the first President to be north of 80 years old as a sitting President in the White House. How insane is that?
On the flip side, we have Donald Trump, who is facing legal battle after legal battle for everything including alleged hush money payments to an adult film star, as well as supposed attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Of course, the majority of Americans believe Trump is innocent of most if not all of the charges being brought against him. But it certainly sets up for a 2024 showdown between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
That is, if they both get there.
You see, in Donald Trump’s case, there’s legal questions being raised about whether he would be eligible to be on the general election ballot come November 2024 due to the indictments he is facing.
Some legal scholars say that even a conviction in the indictment of Trump for trying to overturn the 2020 election wouldn’t disqualify him from being elected President and appearing on the ballot.
Others say that a conviction would be necessary to take him off the ballot, while a handful of Leftist lawyers say that he is already ineligible due to the charge itself.
Donald Trump highlighted this debate in a post he made to Truth Social earlier this week, saying that any attempts to remove him from the ballots are unconstitutional and that the Left’s plans to abuse the 14th Amendment to do so is unfounded.
He called it a “trick” that is designed to “steal” another election, as he is still of the opinion that the 2020 election was tilted in Joe Biden’s favor.
“Like Election Interference, it is just another ‘trick’ being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump said.
Of course, most legal scholars don’t think a lawsuit to kick Donald Trump off the ballot due to the 14th amendment would stand the smell test at all.
But what’s most noteworthy about the post from Trump is what he had to say about the incumbent President Joe Biden.
Joe Biden’s approval ratings are a dumpster fire, and many Americans say he is the worst President since Jimmy Carter. Trump is pointing this out because he knows how to connect to the average American, unlike Biden.
It is almost impossible to argue that everyday American is in a better position today than they were four years ago. Whatever the reason for that is up for debate, but that’s the reality.
Gas prices remain higher than they have been in about twenty years, interest rates are through the roof as the Biden administration federal reserve has manufactured a housing crisis, and net inflation is still way higher than it ever was during Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House.
Americans don’t take too kindly to all of this. Donald Trump knows that, so he’s hammering it home to highlight the fact that the Democrats are likely just trying to k*ll Donald Trump in the court room so that Joe Biden doesn’t have to run against him in the general election season come 2024.
