Governor Newsom is promising Californians everything under the sun if they vote for him. Most recently, Newsom stated that he would not run for president if elected before his next term would end in 2027. “Yeah, I mean, I have sub-zero interest. It’s not even on my radar,” he self-proclaimed. Newsom then slipped and said that he believes Kamala Harris will be America’s next president.
Harris has done absolutely nothing as vice president. A Trafalgar poll stated that only 28% of respondents approved of how Harris is handling her job. Harris has a notoriously high staff turnover rate as well, and there are reports of Biden and Harris often in disagreement behind the curtain. Harris could technically split from Biden and run for the candidacy in 2024. The list of qualifications to become a US president are less than what is required of an entry-level fast-food worker.
US presidential requirements:
- A presidential candidate must be a natural-born citizen of the United States
- They must be a resident for 14 years
- They must be 35-years-old or older
Only 15 vice presidents in US history, including Joe Biden, have won the presidency out of 46 who applied. President Biden confirmed in January that he would select Kamala Harris as his running mate if he runs for reelection in 2024. Before Biden’s announcement in January, Harris told every press outlet willing to listen that she was not sure if Biden would select her for reelection.
Biden will be 81 by the next election but has stated he plans to run despite his obvious mental health decline. The Democrats would be wise to choose a different candidate, but not Kamala who is even less popular and competent than Joe.
