“We can’t let him win” confrontation at campaign fund raising event

According to CNN, etc., President Biden said this at a campaign fund raising event held on the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts.

“If Trump hadn’t run (in the 2024 presidential election), I’m not sure I would have run,” he told donors, adding, “We can’t let him win.”

President Biden then added, “Trump is no longer hiding his credit,” and “He is clearly telling us what he will do next.”

Citing a source familiar with the matter, CNN reported that senior Biden campaign officials also expressed surprise at his remarks.

A campaign official said that President Biden always portrayed former President Trump as the only threat to the United States, and that he made similar comments when he ran for the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Senator Chris Coons (Democrat, Delaware), who is President Biden’s closest confidant and co-chair of his re-election campaign, told CNN, “President Biden said he was running for president in 2020 to restore the soul of our nation. “He perceived former President (Trump) as the only threat to democracy.”

Senator Coons emphasized, “President Biden defeated Trump before and will achieve it again next time.”

Former President Trump said he would abolish Obamacare if he is elected next year and would push for a new law to replace it.

At a recent campaign rally, he used harsh language against those opposing him, including calling them “vermin” and “thugs.” Former President Trump caused controversy by saying that they pose a greater threat than Russia, China, or North Korea.

In a speech given in Claremont, New Hampshire on Veterans Day on the 11th of last month, former President Trump said, “I condemn the communists, Marxists, fascists, and radical leftist thugs who live like pests in our country, lying, stealing, and cheating in our elections.” “I promise you that I will eradicate it,” he said.

Meanwhile, former President Biden has begun raising campaign funds in earnest ahead of next year’s presidential election.

He held three fundraising events outside Boston on the 5th and will hold a total of seven events, including this event, until the 11th of next week. Additional events are scheduled until the end of the month, CNN reported.
