(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has predicted that President Joe Biden will probably die in the next five years, meaning that if re-elected in 2024, his vice president, Kamala Harris, will assume the presidency.
Haley’s forecast about 80-year-old Biden came after he started his 2024 presidential campaign earlier this week with a three-minute video. If re-elected, Biden would be 86 at the end of his second term.
“He announced that he’s running again in 2024, and I think that we can all be very clear and say with a matter of fact that if you vote for Joe Biden you really are counting on a President Harris, because the idea that he would make it until 86 years old is not something that I think is likely,” Haley told Fox News.
51-year-old former South Carolina Governor and former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has called for a “new generation” of leaders as part of her campaign for the 2024 GOP nomination.
She has stated that politicians over 75 should be subjected to a mental competency test. However, first Lady Jill Biden has described that suggestion as “ridiculous.”
The president’s reelection campaign video shows him attacking “MAGA” Republicans, thus directly targeting the supporters of his former and likely future rival, former President Donald Trump.
CNBC points out that Biden, America’s oldest president ever, is trying to “combat concerns about his age heading into 2024.”
At the same time, the Republican Party is “weighing how far to push the issue” in the 2024 presidential election to avoid “alienating older Americans” among its supporters.
It is noted that the White House has been seeking to present the president as “active and fit,” with his first 2024 campaign video showing him jogging.
The White House also made public a spreadsheet showing Biden had a busy travel schedule in the first four months of 2023, which was more intensive than that of his former boss Barack Obama during a comparable period for the 2012 presidential campaign.
“With regard to age, I can’t even say I guess how old I am, I can’t even say the number,” Biden declared on Wednesday in Washington during his joint news conference with his South Korean counterpart, Yoon Suk Yeol.
“It doesn’t register with me. I took a hard look at it before I decided to run. And I feel good,” the president said.
In the past, Biden has rejected public concerns about his advanced age and fitness for office. When asked about it in a TV interview last year, he responded, “Watch me!”
