Newshub18 :Document scandal raises possibility of Trump-Biden run off.
Donald Trump has indicated that he will be a candidate again in the next presidential election of the United States. President Joe Biden’s chances of running for re-election will also greatly increase if Trump, who has sparked much drama, becomes the candidate. The names of Trump and Biden are being heard from the Republican and Democratic camps ahead of the 2024 election. Meanwhile, the discovery of secret documents from Trump’s residence has intensified this discussion.
According to a report of the news agency AFP, the name of former President Donald Trump is involved in the US top secret document scandal. The FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The organization claimed to get 11 sets of top secret documents from there. Republican Party leader Donald Trump wants to highlight the search as a measure to satisfy the political vendetta of the Democrats. Two years after losing the election to Joe Biden, the fact that Trump’s name comes in such a scandal is therefore seen as political heat around the next election.
If Trump is considering declaring himself a candidate for the 2024 presidential election, the FBI investigation is expected to make him more desperate. At least, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham thinks so. “I thought he would fight again,” he told Fox News. But now that idea has been confirmed.Analysts believe that if Trump fights in the election, Biden will also fight. Biden will embark on the historic mission as the oldest US presidential candidate, currently 79 years old. His mission will be to rid the US of Trump. This could lead to a repeat of the nightmare of post-election violence in 2020.
However, this time the fight will be between the 81-year-old (at the time of the election) Biden and the 78-year-old Trump. Trump has not backed down from his claim to win the 2020 election. The Biden-led administration is trying to gather evidence against him in connection with the post-election attacks on Capitol Hill. All in all, analysts fear that the Trump-Biden fight may take a very ugly form.American University history professor Alan Lichtman, who observes the US presidential election in this regard, said, “If you think Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns were horrible. But you didn’t see anything.’
Searching Trump’s residence is good for both sides?
In the eyes of political strategists, the FBI search of Trump’s residence could appear as a game-changing moment. Both parties can benefit from this. The argument for Biden, however, is clear. Not only the FBI investigation, but various allegations are being activated against Trump, the leader of the Republican party. These range from overturning election results to cases of fraud and rape. These are embarrassing for Republicans and encouraging for Biden’s Democratic Party. US midterm elections next November. There are many calculations going on about who will control the US Congress. In the pre-election forecast, there are indications that the Democratic Party and Biden may fall. They are trying to win out of this situation.
Jim Kessler, an analyst at Third Way, a Democratic Party think tank, told the US media outlet The Hill that Donald Trump makes Democrats stronger just as steroids make the body stronger.Meanwhile, the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, which supports the Republicans, says that the activities of Biden’s first two years, the Republicans should take the mid-term elections as a referendum.
Democrats would prefer to talk until November. They will continue to do so until the last time they really talk about Trump.Of course, Trump is also benefiting from this. Again he discussed. Coming to the center of American citizens’ thoughts. His supporters are presenting a new ‘conspiracy theory’ to the public.
Richard Lowry, editor of the conservative magazine National Review, wrote, “Donald Trump has more than 100 million dollars to run political battles. But more valuable to him is the FBI investigation against him. This again made him the middle man of all. Through this, he is getting an opportunity to present himself as a victim in front of everyone.
Trump’s choice, Biden’s strategy
Trump’s emergence in the Republican presidential primaries could upset other strong contenders. John Thomas, a political strategist for the Republican Party, told US media outlet Politico, “If Trump wants to (become a candidate) now, I don’t see any reason why he shouldn’t.”Biden may follow the same path if Trump becomes a challenger in the election. If Biden has even the slightest thought about not standing in the next election, put it aside. Lara Brown, director of George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management, said, ‘Trump will make the first move to determine whether there will be another fight between Biden and Trump. I think, Biden is waiting for whether Trump announces to fight the election or not. If Trump announces his election, Biden will follow him soon.
Voters want neither
The question is who do the voters of the United States want? A recent poll says that most Americans do not want either Biden or Trump as a candidate in the presidential election. NewsNation and Decision Desk HQ conducted a survey last July. It showed that 60 percent of Americans do not want Biden to run for president in 2024. And 57 percent of voters do not want to see Trump as a candidate.
“I’d be very lucky to have the same person running against me in the next election,” Biden said last March in his endorsement of running against Trump.
This year has been a tough one for Biden. His administration has shown significant success in reforming laws and policies in the past few months. However, the US president still remains at the bottom in terms of popularity. According to the survey, Biden managed to retain only 40 percent popularity.
Earlier, in a report of the Washington Post last month, it was said that most of the supporters of the party do not want the current president Joe Biden as the candidate of the Democratic Party in the next presidential election of the United States. This information came out in a New York Times-Siena College survey. This suggests that Biden’s popularity has declined even among those who supported him in the 2020 presidential election. According to the survey, the popularity of US President Biden has dropped to 33 percent. But Biden’s recent rise in popularity, despite the furor over the repeal of abortion rights, has made advisers hopeful again
