Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized President Joe Biden for seeking a second term, calling it “selfish” and also cautioned Republican voters to consider the possibility that the Democrat party may introduce a different candidate in 2024, during a town hall with Newsmax in Urbandale, Iowa. The Republican Iowa caucus begins on Jan. 15.
DeSantis also pointed out that Republicans face a similar issue in planning to run former president Donald Trump, who is 77, in 2024. Biden turned 81 on Monday.
“Clearly, Biden should not be running again,” DeSantis said. “I think he’s very selfish what he’s doing. Look, the age is part of it but if you look at where he was four years ago to now, he’s in decline. … He’s totally lost a step. It’s a daily embarrassment.”
DeSantis suggested that Biden may not be the final candidate for the Democrats, stating that a candidate who contrasts with Biden in terms of generations could potentially benefit the Republicans. He also warned Iowa voters to consider that the 2024 Democrat candidate could be Vice President Kamala Harris or California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
“Republican voters, you should assume that it may not be Biden,” said DeSantis.
