US President Joe Biden said that he did not know if he would seek reelection in 2024 if former President Donald Trump wasn't also running for a second term.

Speaking at a fundraiser in Massachusetts, Biden admitted, "If Trump wasn't running, I'm not sure I'd be running. But we cannot let him win." 

Amid growing concerns, Biden highlighted warnings from former Republican Liz Cheney about the risks of Donald Trump's second term with the presidency. 

Biden said that these concerns were reiterated by prominent media outlets like the Atlantic, Washington Post, and New York Times, echoing apprehensions about the implications of a return to power by Trump.

In a subsequent fundraiser in Boston, Biden slammed Trump's aggressive language on the campaign trail, drawing parallels to historical events in Germany during the 1930s. He underscored Trump's unabashed declarations, stating, "He's making no bones about it."

While positioning himself as the guardian of American democracy, Biden faces hurdles as Trump maintains a narrow lead in certain polls, despite legal challenges including one related to election subversion. 

Internal deliberations within the Democratic Party regarding Biden's age further complicate the upcoming election landscape. Trump's response on Truth Social branded Biden as the "real dictator."
