In January 2021, Joe Biden victoriously took the place of Donald Trump to become the 46th President. Although when he is up for re-election in 2024 there would be no uncertainty about the thread of people gazing to take a seat in the Oval office. One of those could be WWE Hall Of Famer and former AWA World Tag Team Champion, Jesse Ventura.
Jesse Ventura plans to run with a new party
The 71-year-old recently appeared on the Talk is Jericho podcast and showed signs to mock he is talking about a run for president in 2024. The actor and politician disclosed he wants to run a new with a new political party as he doesn’t believe in Republicans or Democrats.
“Now it’s more serious than ever. I mean, I dabbled with the Green Party two years ago ’til I found out they were split and were completely dysfunctional.But I’ve been communicating and working very close now with Andrew Yang, and Andrew Yang is the real deal and Andrew Yang is forming what’s going to be called the Forward Party,” Ventura said on the podcast.
“And we’re calling it that because we want to look forward into the future — we don’t want the past, we don’t want nothing to do with the [Democrats] and [Republicans]. They’re the past, this is going to be the Forward Party, and we’re hoping to get ballot access and candidates on the slate and have a presidential candidate and a convention by the 2024 election. And I’ll tell you why, Chris, right now, 60% of the country doesn’t want [Joe] Biden or [Donald] Trump,” he added. [H/T Thirsty for News]
