(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NEWS NOW: According to Republican presidential candidate Nikki Halley, President Joe Biden, who is currently 80 years old, might not live beyond five years, making it necessary for his supporters to rely on Vice President Kamala Harris if he wins re-election in 2024.
“He announced that he’s running again in 2024, and I think we can all agree 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,” said Haley, 51, during an interview on Fox News.
Biden officially launched his re-election campaign on Tuesday with a video targeting “MAGA” Republicans, which refers to Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”
Haley is centering her presidential campaign on a “new generation” of leadership. In a speech initiating her campaign, she proposed that politicians older than 75 should be required to take a mental competency test—a suggestion that First Lady Jill Biden called “ridiculous.”
These comments come as Biden, the oldest president in U.S. history, tries to address concerns about his age as the 2024 election approaches. Republicans are considering how much to emphasize this issue in the campaign without pushing away older Americans, who typically are reliable voters.
White House staff have also tried to show that the president is active and healthy. The video announcing Biden’s re-election campaign features him jogging in his suit jacket. The White House has produced a spreadsheet illustrating Biden’s demanding travel schedule during the first four months of the year, which exceeds that of then-President Barack Obama during a similar period in the 2012 campaign.
Regarding his age, Biden said at a joint news conference with his South Korean counterpart, Yoon Suk Yeol, “I can’t even say how old I am; I can’t even say the number. It doesn’t register with me. I took a hard look at it before I decided to run. And I feel good.”
Biden has previously brushed off concerns about his age, replying, “Watch me” when questioned about his fitness for office.
