Former President Donald Trump and US President Joe Biden are each offering a sharp insight into the political accountability that has several Americans wishing they had other options in 2024.
Biden, 81, is ferociously disproving questions about his memory, and age as he struggles to put down to rest anxiety among voters that he wouldn’t be capable of serving a full second term.
At the weekend, Donald Trump offered a display of extremism, raising fresh questions over his fitness for the Oval Office. Polls highlight limited zeal for both men and the comparison between the likely general election opponents helps in explaining why polls show this.
Joe will be the more ordinary choice as Donald is promising one of the most vociferous second terms in the history of the United States. As the President’s campaign gathers pace, Joe Biden’s troubles are making it difficult for his efforts to convince that Trump can destroy American democracy and will harm the country’s reputation abroad.
Donald Trump is giving every impression that his second term will be even more deviating than his first, as he promises to use presidential power to exact punishment against his enemies. But he’s nonetheless closely matched with Joe Biden in polling and has a real chance to win.
While a Biden vs. Trump race would be a rematch of 2020, it won’t be possibly the same. The sitting president is four years older, and age questions are even more serious. And Donald Trump is even more comprehensive and unchained than when he left office.
In Donald Trump’s, voters can choose an ex-president facing 91 criminal charges who have been found accountable for fraud, sexual battery and defamation in court.
After losing reelection in 2020, Trump tried to stay in power. Donald Trump sides with Russian President Vladimir Putin this weekend over NATO allies and mocked the military service of GOP rival Nikki Haley’s husband.
This week, the ex-president faces a set of court deadlines and hearings that will resume the focus on his endless threats to the rule of law.
In Joe Biden, voters must decide whether to reappoint the oldest president ever, at 81, who is disproving angrily of a declining memory following an assessment of his faculties by a special counsel.
