Trump Expresses Doubts About Biden’s 2024 Candidacy, Citing Physical and Mental Concerns

During a town hall event in Davenport, Iowa, hosted by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, former President Donald Trump cast doubts on President Joe Biden’s potential candidacy for the 2024 election. Trump expressed his reservations, emphasizing concerns about Biden’s physical condition, referencing instances of falls, including one at the Air Force Academy on June 1. Trump also alluded to Biden’s stumble on the steps of Air Force One and changes in his boarding procedures to accommodate his age.

While discussing Biden’s beach activities, Trump asserted that the president struggled to lift a beach chair meant for children. Trump added concerns about Biden’s mental state, suggesting that he might be “possibly equally as bad and maybe worse” mentally.


This skepticism about Biden’s candidacy aligns with concerns voiced by David Axelrod, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, who highlighted poor polling numbers for Biden in a post on X on November 5. Recent polls have shown Biden trailing Trump, and Trump leading in swing states like Arizona and Michigan, which he lost in 2020.

In addition to potential challenges from Trump, Biden faces third-party competition from candidates such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West, running as independents, and Jill Stein, the 2016 Green Party presidential candidate, who announced her bid for the party’s nomination in 2024.
