New York Mayor Eric Adams is keeping tabs on the White House, just in case President Biden decides to step down in 2024, according to a New York Post report.
“Eric has told me several times that he thinks he has a platform to run for president in 2024, nationally,” a source close to Adams told the New York Post. “He’s said it many times. He thinks New York is a national platform. He thinks the national party has gone too far to the left and he thinks he has a platform to win.”

Biden’s ability for a second term was the subject of intense discussion even before he entered the Oval Office. The 79-year-old has become increasingly prone to goofiness and seeming confusion while going about his daily responsibilities.
Adams has previously joked about the presidency when talking about his dyslexia, joking in front of an audience that if he had been diagnosed with the affliction earlier, he could be president instead of mayor.
Adams adviser Evan Thies told the Post that the rumors were unfounded, saying, “The mayor has had no conversations with anyone about running for president. He is focused on 100% on reducing crime and improving the economy in New York, and bringing this city back.”

A new poll released earlier this month shows that the majority of New York City voters disapprove of Mayor Eric Adams’ handling of the outbreak criminality during his tenure of just over four months.
Across political parties, races, genders, age groups and boroughs, crime is considered the most pressing issue facing the Big Apple, according to a Quinnipiac University survey of registered voters in New York City.
Overall, 49% of voters said crime was the most pressing issue, compared to 15% of respondents who said affordable housing and 12% who saw homelessness as the most pressing issue. Of the 10 questions voters could choose from, no other question exceeded double digits.
Fox News contacted Eric Adams’ campaign office but received no response.
