The 2024 White House race won’t begin for another 10 months, until after the 2022 midterm elections.
Many Americans are expecting to see a rematch between the two leaders.
Joe Biden has recently amplified attacks on his predecessor, President Donald Trump.
Biden claims “the former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election.”
During the same speech, Biden claimed that Trump “values power over principle” and “sees his own interests as more important than his country’s interests and America’s interests.”
“His bruised ego matters more to him than our democracy or our Constitution,” Biden smugly stated.
Biden attempted to emphasize that Trump is “a defeated former president” who is “trying to rewrite history.”
Fox News reports that Bien’s words “sounded like the next presidential election campaign.”
Biden pledged to “defend this nation. And I will allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of our democracy.”
Trump immediately ripped Biden by saying he “used my name today to try to further divide America,” labeling it “political theater.”
Trump explained that the president’s speech was “just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.”

Looking ahead to this November’s midterms, when the GOP hopes to win back majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate, Trump said that “to watch Biden speaking is very hurtful for many people…this is an election year and MAGA Republicans should get elected and work with me to fix this horror.”
After his address, Biden told reporters that he referred to Trump in his speech as a “former president” rather than directly name him because he “did not want to turn” marking the one-year anniversary of the attack on the Capitol “into a contemporary political battle between me” and Trump.
But in some ways, what Biden said on Thursday sounded like the opening shots in the next White House race.
Expect Trump to fire back when he’s in front of cameras next weekend, as he heads to the crucial battleground state of Arizona to hold his first campaign style rally of 2022.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has narrowed the list of contenders to host its 2024 presidential nominating convention down to four major cities.
Making the short-list are Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Nashville, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Milwaukee and Pittsburgh are located in crucial general election battleground states, while Nashville and Salt Lake City are located in reliably red states.
