Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is polling as one of the top contenders to defeat Joe Biden and reclaim the White House for Republicans.
Democrats are game planning to potentially face DeSantis in the general election next year.
Now Joe Biden admitted one thing about Ron DeSantis that no one expected.
Biden is still playing coy about re-election.
It is clear that Biden would like to run for re-election, but that polls show the vast majority of Democrats want a different candidate next year out of fears that Americans see Joe Biden as senile and therefore unelectable.
During an interview with Telemundo’s Julio Vaqueiro Biden addressed his re-election campaign by revealing he considers Florida Governor Ron DeSantis a clone of Donald Trump.
At first Biden tried to duck the questions of which Florida Republican Biden would rather face in 2024.
“We’re in Florida, which, as you know, is the home of two probable contenders for the presidency. Would there be a difference running against Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis?” Vaqueiro wondered.
“I have no idea,” Biden responded.
Vaqueiro tried a follow-up before Biden cut him off.
“I’m serious. I have no idea,” Biden interjected.
But Vaqueiro finally got an answer by asking Biden about Biden’s phony claim of wanting to unite the country.
“But I guess my question is, because you talk a lot about how divided the country is and how you want to unite it, which is which is true. But I do wonder if you think there would be a difference between running against one or the other candidate in terms of polarization?” Vaqueiro asked.
That’s when Biden spilled the beans that he really did not consider Donald Trump some existential threat to democracy by admitting that if Ron DeSantis wins the GOP nomination Biden will say DeSantis is nothing more than an imitation of Trump.
“No, I don’t think so, because I think that they have a similar modus operandi, a similar way in which they work. But I really don’t know. I’ve never decided to run or not run based on who the opponent will be,” Biden declared.
When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016 Republicans tuned out Democrats and the media’s hysterical claims that Trump was a racist, misogynistic Nazi that would usher in a theocratic dictatorship in America because the left made the same claims against Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.
Now after seven years of hysteria about Donald Trump’s rallying a fascist movement to overthrow American democracy Biden admitted on camera it was just a campaign tactic he will apply to Ron DeSantis if Biden faces the Florida governor in the 2024 general election.
