Former governor of South Carolina and presidential candidate Nikki Haley predicted that President Joe Biden is "likely to die" in the next five years and would be unable to finish his second term if he is reelected next year.
During an interview with Fox News, Haley stated, "He announced that he’s running again in 2024, and I think that we can all be very clear and say with a matter of fact that if you vote for Joe Biden, you really are counting on a President Harris, because the idea that he would make it until 86 years old is not something that I think is likely."
White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates responded to Haley's comment by saying, "As you know, we don’t directly respond to campaigns from here. But honestly, I forgot she was running."
While Haley may be a long-shot candidate to win the Republican presidential nomination, she raises a valid point.
President Biden is already the oldest president in American history, and it's obvious his health is failing despite all the work the White House has done to hide that inconvenient truth.
It seems unwise to elect someone who may not live through the entirety of his term. However, as far as Democrats are concerned, they could not care less how long Biden lives just as long as they retain control of the White House.
