The U.S. president gave a speech in support of current California Governor Gavin Newsom.
US President Joe Biden remembered his predecessor and 2020 election opponent Donald Trump at a speech to supporters in California and crossed himself. The Associated Press reported this on Tuesday, September 14.
Specifically, Biden was talking about the state's gubernatorial election, speaking in support of its current head, Gavin Newsom. He said his Republican opponent, Larry Elder, is a "Donald Trump clone" who should not be allowed into office.
"As you all know, I fought the election last year against the real Donald Trump," Biden said and crossed himself to the laughter of his supporters.
Joe Biden's current visit to California is part of a campaign to support Democratic politicians across the country to fight "Trumpism" that has persisted in the United States since Trump left.
In April 2021, Republicans managed to collect the necessary number of signatures to recall the governor of California. Most of the discontent of voters is due to the actions of state authorities to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. The vote is set for Sept. 14, and the ballots will ask two questions: "Do you want the governor recalled?" and "If so, who do you think should replace him?" If recall supporters win, his successor will lead the state until the next gubernatorial election.
It was previously reported that Donald Trump intends to run in the next presidential campaign in 2024. His interest in the election strengthened after Biden's ratings declined amid the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
