Politico revealed on Thursday that Biden’s aides prefer to use a fake White House stage in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is right next door to the White House, because it is decked out with an easy-to-read teleprompter.
The revelation was included as part of the Biden team’s larger concerns about his ability to run for office again in 2024.
“Still, some allies and Democrats privately worry that Biden may not be able to handle the rigors of another campaign,” Politico wrote.
“A bone he broke in his foot while playing with his dog in late November 2020 still occasionally bothers Biden, resulting in a slower and shorter gait,” the report continued.
“And the White House has largely abandoned using the Oval Office for press events in part because it can’t be permanently equipped with a teleprompter.”
Biden has publicly and privately said that he intends to run again, but Democrats are allegedly pushing him to make a final decision after the November midterm elections so that candidates can start preparing.
The only thing that could push Biden into the 2024 race for sure is former President Donald Trump deciding to run again too, Politico claimed.
Trump has hinted at another run for the White House, but has not made an official decision yet, according to people close to him.
The survey from Harvard CAPS-Harris revealed that 47% of voters would back Trump while only 41% would support Biden, if the 2024 presidential election were held this year.
Harris performs even worse in the hypothetical match-up. Nearly 50% of voters said they would choose Trump, while 38% said they would support Harris.
