Trump denies Biden’s suggestion he is ‘intimidating’ the GOP: ‘The party loves me and I love the party’
- Joe Biden said on Wednesday that many Republicans were afraid to vote for his policies for fear that Donald Trump would attack them
- “Did you ever think that one man out of office could intimidate an entire party,” he asked, saying they “lived in fear of being defeated in a primary”
- Trump was asked by Fox News on Wednesday whether he wanted to intimidate members of his party and replied: ‘No’
- The 75-year-old said he “loves his party” and that his former colleagues felt the same way
- He also said he was pleased that Biden said on Wednesday that Kamala Harris would be his running mate for 2024, saying he was “lucky for them.”
- Trump has previously said he will make a decision on whether or not to re-election after this year’s midterm elections
Donald Trump denied on Wednesday that he was “intimidating” the Republican Party, insisting that the party “loves him” and that he loves them.
Joe Biden previously held a nearly two-hour press conference without naming his predecessor once.
Still, he said Trump remained a powerful force in politics, accusing the former president of working to downsize current lawmakers to follow suit and block Biden’s policies.
“Have you ever thought that a man who is not in office can intimidate an entire party if they are not willing to take votes contrary to what he thinks should be taken for fear of being defeated in a primary? ‘ Biden asked Wednesday.
“I’ve had five Republican senators talk to me, ‘bump into me’—quote, don’t quote—or sit with me, who have told me they agree with whatever I say they should do. “But Joe, if I do it, I’ll be defeated in a primary.”
‘We have to break that. That has to change.’
Joe Biden did not mention Trump on Wednesday, instead speaking of ‘one man who was out of office’ who ‘could intimidate an entire party’
The 75-year-old, who was seen at his January 15 rally in Arizona, insisted he didn’t want to intimidate Republicans.
Trump was asked by Fox News on Wednesday evening whether he was harassing Republicans and denied the claim.
“No,” Trump told Fox news. “The party loves me and I love the party.”
Biden said he would run with Kamala Harris again in 2024 — which Trump said made him “very happy.”
The 75-year-old is widely expected to run again in 2024, and he said he would be happy to take on the challenge of beating Biden and Harris one more time.
‘Oh, did he say that? Good,” Trump said. ‘Wow.’
Biden confirmed on Wednesday that he and Kamala Harris would be riding on a shared ticket in 2024
He added: ‘I am very happy about that. I’m very happy for them both.’
“Let me say, I’m very happy for both of them.”
Trump has said he plans to formally announce whether he will be re-elected after the midterms in 2024.
When asked about his plans on Wednesday, Trump said he thinks he will “make a lot of people happy” with his decision.
“I think you’ll see a lot of people are going to be really happy,” Trump told Fox.
