Biden scoffs at the idea that Trump’s political movement is still ‘strong’

President Biden laughed at a press conference on Wednesday.

When a journalist Biden asked on how he can assure G-7 leaders that Trump will no longer be elected president, Biden laughed after the reporter commented on the strength of former President Trump’s influence.

“So how do you reassure them, if that is the reason for their questioning, that the former president will not return, that his political movement, which is still very strong, will once again take power in the United States?” asked the reporter.

“Oh, yeah?” Biden said, laughing at the reporter’s characterization.
