With reports of former President Trump possibly running for president in 2024, the Biden administration is not turning their noses up at their potential opposing candidate. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain talked to Mike Allen of Axios HBO on Sunday about how serious of a candidate the former president is.
“I wouldn’t want to estimate or underestimate Donald Trump as an opponent if he chooses to run,” Klain said.
Trump has said he is considering to run in 2024. No official announcements have been made yet.
President Biden is also up for a rematch. He told reporters in March that while he’s “never been able to plan” four years into the future, but that he expects to run for a second term.
“My experience, Mike, is that incumbent presidents are judged on their record,” Klain said in his interview. “President Trump had a bad record in 2020. Joe Biden is hopefully assembling a powerful record to run on if he runs for reelection in 2024.”

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
