Victor Davis Hanson, the conservative historian and scholar who has often defended Trump, thinks Biden is making another run possible for Trump in 2024.
Basically, Biden’s failures are so pronounced that the contrast between the two men and their policies has become impossible to ignore.
It’s an excellent point.
Hanson writes at Real Clear Politics:
Former President Donald Trump has signaled he will announce his presidential intentions after the November midterm elections. Yet his record of endorsements is quite mixed. By the sheer numbers of winning primary candidates his stamp of approval is impressive, but in a few of the most important races, not so much.
The disaster that is the Biden Administration has been a godsend for Trump. Had President Joe Biden simply plagiarized the successful Trump agenda, there would have followed no border disaster, no energy crisis, no hyperinflation, and no disastrous flight from Afghanistan.
Had Biden followed through on his “unity” rhetoric, he could have lorded over Trump’s successful record as his own, while contrasting his Uncle-Joe ecumenicalism with supposed Trump’s polarization.
Of course, serious people knew from the start that was utterly impossible. A cognitively challenged Biden was a captive of ideologues. Thus, he was bound to pursue an extremist agenda that could only end as it now has — in disaster and record low polls.
Still, how ironic that the Biden catastrophe revived a Trump candidacy. Biden likely will cause the Democrats to lose Congress. His pick of a dismal Kamala Harris as vice president has likely ensured, for now, fewer viable Democratic presidential candidates in 2024.
You may want to read the whole thing.
Anything can change between now and 2024.
Should Trump decide to run, he will likely be the 2024 nominee, but even if he doesn’t, he will be involved in the process.
You can take that to the bank.
