Biden tries out zinger on ‘cutting’ Trump from ‘24 race: ‘Got one really serious idea’

WASHINGTON — President Biden on Monday joked about attempting to “cut” former President Donald Trump from November’s election.

The 81-year-old Democratc president appeared to ad-lib his punchline at a White House Rose Garden celebration of Cinco de Mayo after saying his Republican foe “wants to cut Social Security and Medicare.

“He says there’s a lot we can do in terms of cutting,” Biden mentioned, referring to a current interview given by Trump, 77.

“I’ve got one really serious idea of how to cut,” Biden added, pausing and chuckling to himself earlier than including “a candidate.”

Biden made the joke despite the fact that Trump has been accusing him on an almost day by day foundation of orchestrating his 4 pending felony prosecutions, together with his ongoing hush cash trial in New York City for allegedly falsifying enterprise information in 2016.

“This is [Democratic Manhattan District Attorney] Alvin Bragg doing it for political reasons for Biden,” Trump advised journalists on the courthouse Monday morning. “This is a Biden trial. He’s a crooked president.”

Trump has pointed out that Matthew Colangelo, the prosecutor main the case towards him in New York, previously was the third-ranking official within the Biden Justice Department earlier than becoming a member of Bragg’s case towards him in December 2022.

A felony conviction wouldn’t bar Trump from searching for workplace, although some Democratic officers have tried to maintain him off ballots, arguing he led an rebellion in the course of the 2021 Capitol riot that disrupted certification of Biden’s victory. The US Supreme Court struck down these efforts in March.

Biden’s reference about Trump wanting to chop Social Security and Medicare was concerning a current CNBC interview through which the ex-president mentioned, “There is a lot you can do in terms of entitlements, in terms of cutting.”

Trump later advised Breitbart News, “There’s so much cutting and so much waste in so many other areas, but I’ll never do anything to hurt Social Security.”
