The chairman of Forbes Media, Steve Forbes, indicated on Friday that he does not believe that the current President, Joe Biden, will be the nominee of the Democratic Party in the contest for the presidency in 2024. Steve Forbes made this statement after pointing out the various failings of the Biden administration.
The chairman of the media conglomerate was a guest on the Fox program ‘America’s Newsroom,’ where he discussed the overwhelmingly bad reception that the economy has received under President Biden. The economy under President Biden has been described by Forbes as “the economic version of walking pneumonia.”
“I think there is economy fatigue, one thing after another. So, inflation has come down a little bit. Prices are still going up. Wages aren’t going up fast enough,” the chairman said. “There’s a feeling the country is adrift. These whole negotiations on the debt ceiling, my goodness! They can’t control spending even though it’s $2 trillion higher than it was a couple of years ago. People just throw up their hands and say these people are out of control.”
The host on Fox News then brought out a report saying that 48 percent of Americans think that the economic policies of the Biden administration are hurting them and stated that numbers like those would make it much more difficult for Biden to run for president in 2024.
The bombshell was then dropped when Forbes said, “I think that’s why next year, Joe Biden will not be the Democratic Party nominee.” The anchors were taken aback by this revelation, which prompted the co-host, Bill Hemmer, to point out that Forbes is making this statement on the record.
“On record. Because the economy — yeah, they can sweep the Hunter stuff away — but that has a stench out there,” the media chairman added. “So you have a poor economy, you have a president people feel is not up to the job anymore, certainly not for the next four years. So I don’t know what the scenario is going to be, but they cannot have him running in November of 2024.”
Forbes was asked by Jacqui Heinrich, the other co-host, who he believed could be the Democratic Party nominee in the event that Joe Biden did not win the nomination. Forbes pointed out that a variety of outcomes are still possible, recalling the election of 2020 as an example, in which Bernie Sanders made a determined effort to win the nomination but was ultimately defeated by Joe Biden. Forbes also said that both the governors of California and Michigan saw there was blood in the water and acted quickly to capitalize on the chance.
In comparison to the Democratic Party, the Republican Party is “developing ideas” and “has a lot of new faces,” according to the chairman, who also brought up the enormous amount of recent success that the Republican Party has been enjoying.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a noteworthy candidate who is not being considered for the nomination of the Democratic Party. In recent weeks, Kennedy Jr. has been gaining ground in the polls against Vice President Joe Biden, and he recently tied with the current president.
Forbes is one of the first to make the bold assertion that President Biden will not serve for another four years in the White House. However, Forbes is not the only one to feel this way. Biden’s reputation has been gradually eroding as voters become more aware of his deteriorating mental sharpness and the multiple controversies he has been involved in. Even if he were to remain in office until the end of 2024, it is difficult to picture his serving as president for another four years after that.
