Trump claims there’s ‘something wrong’ with Biden: Tells Tucker Carlson ‘I don’t see how it’s possible’ president, 80, can make it through 2024 after discussing ‘eggs’ with Al Roker
Former President Donald Trump claimed that ‘there’s something wrong’ with President Joe Biden, expressing doubt that the 80-year-old would make it through the 2024 presidential race.
Trump sat down for an interview with Tucker Carlson, which will air Tuesday night, and was asked by the Fox News Channel host if he believed Biden would stay in the race.
‘Look, I watch him just like you do. And I think it’s almost inapproriate for me to say it – I don’t see how it’s possible – but there’s something wrong,’ the 76-year-old Trump replied.
The former president pointed to an interview Biden gave at Monday’s White House Easter Egg Roll with Today’s Al Roker.
‘I saw his answer today. On television. About whether or not he was going to run. To a very nice guy named Al Roker. You can’t get a softer question than that. That was a long answer, talking about the eggs and the this and that,’ Trump said. ‘Look, I don’t think he can.’

Roker talked to Biden and first lady Jill Biden on the Truman Balcony and asked the president if he planned to take part in Easter Egg Rolls after 2024.
‘I plan on – at least three or four more Easter Egg Rolls,’ Biden replied. ‘Maybe five,’ he continued, his childhood stutter slightly apparent. ‘Maybe six, what the hell?’
Roker asked if that meant Biden would be running for reelection.
‘I’ll either be the guy rolling the egg or the guy pushing them out,’ Biden answered.
He then clarified.
‘I plan on running, Al,’ he said, ‘but we’re not prepared to announce it yet.’
Trump announced his intentions to retake the White House in mid-November, directly after the midterm elections, elongating the already lengthy presidential campaign timeline.
Biden, however, has yet to officially announce a reelection campaign.
An Axios report last week quoted some Biden sources suggesting it could come as late as this fall, while others thought he’d announce sometime this summer.
Meanwhile, Trump is trying to make quick work of the Republican primary field – which has officially attracted Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Vivek Ramaswamy, but with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Tim Scott and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo all flirting with a bid.
