Donald Trump continues to strongly hint that he is an all-but-certain 2024 candidate.
That means a rematch with Joe Biden.
And Donald Trump hit Joe Biden with an ultimatum that left his supporters grinning from ear to ear.
Donald Trump provided guest commentary on a boxing match between former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and seven-time Mixed Martial Arts champion Vitor Belfort.
During the pre-fight promotion Trump answered a question from a USA Today reporter about who Trump would fight if he ever got in the ring by answering Joe Biden, which drew laughter from the crowd in attendance after Trump said he would knock Biden out easily.
“Probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden,” Trump stated. “Because I think he’d go down very, very quickly. Very, very quickly.”
This is not the first time Trump and Biden threatened a fist fight.
During the 2020 campaign Biden once told a sparse crowd that he wished he could drag Trump behind a barn and beat him up.
“No, I wish we were in high school and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden stated.
Trump mocked Biden in response.
“He wants to bring me to the back of the barn? Oooooooooh,” Trump posted on social media. “Some things in life you could really love doing.”
Trump referenced Biden’s call-out in the press conference laughing at Biden challenging him to a fight by claiming he would knock Biden out right after the opening bell sounded.
“You know he once said, ‘oh I’d like to take him behind the barn.’ He’d be in big trouble if he ever did,” Trump stated. “Now, I think Biden would go down within the first few seconds and he won’t get up.”
The oddsmakers agree with one betting site listing Trump as a -5000 favorite – meaning you would have to bet $5,000 on Trump to win $100 – in a hypothetical boxing match against Joe Biden.
Trump also believes that because of Joe Biden’s failures on COVID, illegal immigration, inflation, creating jobs and withdrawing from Afghanistan, Trump would be a similar favorite in a 2024 presidential election rematch.
Donald Trump has reason to feel confident.
One poll showed one in five Democrats regretted their vote for Joe Biden.
While they are likely not to vote for Trump in a rematch they could stay home as Joe Biden’s enthusiasm problem – more voters strongly disapprove of his job performance than strongly approve – could show up in a re-election campaign.
An Emerson poll also found Trump leading Biden 47 to 46 percent in a potential 2024 rematch.
Donald Trump clearly believes there is an opening to challenge and defeat Joe Biden in 2024.
And Trump may have used his boxing match boast as a metaphor for a future campaign against Joe Biden.
