Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Michael Whatley emphatically stated that “it doesn’t matter” which Democratic candidate former President Trump faces in the 2024 general elections, as any Democrat would embrace the same policies as this administration, NewsNation reports. During an interview on “The Hill Sunday with Chris Stirewalt,” Whatley expressed skepticism about the possibility of Democrats replacing President Biden as their presumptive 2024 nominee. He noted that Biden would have to make the decision himself, which seems unlikely.

“There is no process that would allow for them to have an insurgency and remove him from their convention unless he’s going to step down. And we certainly don’t see any indication of that coming out of his conversations over the last couple days,” Whatley said. “Secondly, not a single one of those Democrats is going to put a different proposal on the stage than what Joe Biden has proposed. None of them are going to have different policy positions. All of them are going to double down on all of the same policies that Joe Biden has unleashed on America,” Whatley added.

When asked whether he would rather Trump face Biden or Vice President Harris, Whatley again said that doesn’t matter. “You know, for us, it doesn’t matter. We are going to run our race. As we saw in the debate, President Trump is going to hit his marks. He’s going to talk about what he’s going to do to make America great again, and that really starts with restoring the southern border, restoring our economy, and restoring our place in the world,” he continued.

Trump has responded to a growing chorus of calls on the Democrat left for President Joe Biden to drop out of the race following his weak, dismal debate performance on Thursday. Trump said he believes President Biden “will be the nominee” for the Democratic Party, despite the increasingly panicked calls from Democrats and left-wing media, Fox News reported.

“It was a great honor to be on stage representing the people of our country,” Trump told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview Friday morning. The Trump campaign declared that its candidate won shortly after the showdown ended, saying the former president and presumptive Republican nominee had “delivered the greatest debate performance and victory in history to the largest voter audience in history, making clear exactly how he will improve the lives of every American.”

“Joe Biden on the other hand showed exactly why he deserves to be fired,” Trump campaign co-chairs Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles said in a statement Thursday night. “Despite taking a week-long vacation at Camp David to prepare for the debate, Biden was unable to defend his disastrous record on the economy and the border.” They added: “President Trump is spot-on when he says that if Joe Biden is too incompetent to stand trial, then Biden is too incompetent to be President.”

During parts of Thursday night’s debate, Biden struggled, delivering rambling answers with a raspy voice. He also lost his train of thought multiple times, raising concerns among his closest political allies and those in the media. Sources told Fox News that some Democrats were even considering the possibility of replacing Biden as the nominee at the Democratic nominating convention in August.

During his interview with Fox, Trump was asked specifically if he thought Biden would become his party’s nominee. “Yes, I think he will be the nominee,” Trump said. When pressed further on concerns among Democrats about Biden’s lackluster showing and talk that he could be replaced, Trump told Fox News Digital that he does not think Biden will be removed. “No, I don’t think so,” Trump said, touting his own debate performance. “They wouldn’t have done any better. No one else would have been better.”
