On Thursday (March 9), while President Joe Biden was discussing his recently unveiled budget blueprint, he described former President Donald Trump as the “maybe future president” as he recalled a “big fight” the two had during his 2020 presidential campaign.
Speaking at the Finishing Trades Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Biden relayed that at the time of the incident, he was running for President and had a “big fight with the former president and maybe future president.”
As he mentioned the possibility of Trump being the future President, a reference to Trump’s presidential campaign, Biden made the sign of the cross and said, “Bless be Father.”
As Biden mentioned Trump, the crowd erupted in boos, forcing the President to forge ahead with the retelling of the “big fight.”
Biden recalled that the fight erupted because Trump had “decided to fire all the inspector generals.”
Biden explained that he told Trump, “You shouldn’t do that,” and has now been vindicated as his administration learns “billions of [COVID-19 relief] dollars were stolen.”
Biden mentioning Trump might be the future President comes as the White House has confirmed Biden, despite being the oldest President in U.S. history, intends to seek reelection in 2024.
Trump, however, launched his 2024 Presidential campaign on November 15, 2022, after spending over a year teasing his intention to run for President.
This year, his been joined by several other Republican candidates, including former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.
The only Democratic to announce a Presidential bid is self-help author Marianne Williamson, who had a failed Presidential bid in 2020 after failing to gain traction with primary voters.
