“I am willing to serve my country. There is no doubt about that,” the 59-year-old Democrat said, asserting that anyone who sees her in action “would conclude [qu’elle est] Fully capable of driving. »
The interview is determined Wall Street JournalThis came two days before the publication of devastating comments from the US Attorney General, last Thursday, regarding the memory of Joe Biden, 81 years old.
Robert Hoare, the special prosecutor charged with investigating the case of secret documents in the possession of the US President, abandoned his trial, arguing, among other things, that the jury would hesitate to sentence an “old man with faulty memory.” .
These statements shook the election campaign, nine months before the presidential elections in November, which will likely pit Joe Biden against former Republican President Donald Trump (77 years old).
