(FeaturedNews.com) – Hillary Clinton expressed her support for Joe Biden’s re-election come 2024, despite the concerns regarding his age.
On Saturday, during the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C., Clinton was asked about Biden’s recent stumbling during the G7 Summit in Japan. As Financial Times editor Edward Luce pointed out, the moment was “heart-stopping” as Biden almost fell over when trying to climb down the stairs at the summit. He proceeded to point out that whenever such an incident occurs, it is heart-stopping because of the consequences it might have. He then proceeded to ask Clinton about her opinion.
In response, Clinton stated that this is a “concern for anyone” and pointed out that there were younger people who had served as President who also fell, and yet people’s hearts were not “palpitating.” She added that Biden’s “age is an issue” that people have the right to consider.
Despite this, Clinton proceeded to state that Biden has decided to run, and with everything that he has managed to accomplish in the last three years, it makes sense to vote for him because of his record. As she noted, he does not get a lot of credit for all of the things that he has accomplished for the country in terms of jobs and growth, as well as what he has planned for the country moving forward.
Clinton proceeded to state that she was hoping Biden would be able to remain focused, as he can win his re-election campaign, and his victory is what “everyone should be hoping for.” These comments do not entirely align with what other Democrats have stated so far, as generally many have dismissed all concerns about Biden’s age.
