Manchin describes Trump’s recent rhetoric as “vengeful”, but says he will support him if reelected

In an interview on ‘Your World’ with host Neil Cavuto from Fox News, Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia made it clear he’ll back the next U.S. president, no matter which party they come from. He promised to do all he can to help the next leader do well in the White House. This statement comes after the centrist Democrat, who has been a senator since 2010, said last November he wouldn’t seek reelection.

Manchin to help the president

“Whenever our president is elected, duly elected by the people which Joe Biden was done, which Donald Trump was done in 2016, I’m going to do everything I can to help my president be successful,” stated Senator Manchin during the interview on Friday, February 23.

Harsh comments on Trump

When asked about his thoughts on Donald Trump possibly serving another term, Manchin did say he was worried about Trump’s recent harsh words, calling them “vengeful.” Yet, he insisted he’d support Trump if he won again, emphasizing the need to put personal feelings aside for the country’s benefit.

Still, Manchin hoped for a kinder way of talking to each other in politics, calling for respect and kindness over spite. He was especially critical of Trump’s harsh comments about his political opponent, Nikki Haley of South Carolina.

“You’d hope that we could reason, sit down, and make sure he doesn’t use the vengeful, vindictive tone he’s been touting right now and use a common decency that we all have and have to have in this type, civil country that we have,” Manchin said.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says he won’t run for president despite claims

Senator Joe Manchin made it clear he’s not planning to run for president. Instead, he’s keen on pushing moderate ideas within his party, the Democrats.

“I will not support someone who’s told me what they’re going to do and how they’re going to govern,” he said. “But if they’re in that position, I’m going to try to work with them to bring them back to common sensibility.”

Manchin emphasized his current lack of support for any candidate, underlining the need for a shift towards moderation in politics. “There’s still a lot of time left,” he mentioned on Monday.

“I’m going to do everything I can to help move them back to the middle and show them where the strength of this country lies, where the voting bloc of the country lies.”

Manchin to remain moderate Democrat

Manchin’s dedication to a moderate approach highlights the deep divisions in U.S. politics, aiming for bipartisan collaboration.

“I’m just trying to do everything I can to make sure that we have a pathway forward where the center of this country is going to be represented,” Manchin replied. “And that’s the center-left and center-right.”

He expressed optimism that there are many Republicans and Democrats who prefer this balanced way of leading. With talks of a potential Biden-Trump rematch in the next election, Manchin remained careful, suggesting it’s too soon for any forecasts.

“Well, we’ll just have to see what happens. It’s a long time before that happens,” the senator argued. “Right now, there might be other people getting in. There are still independents.”

“You just might have still a third-party run from No Labels,” he added. “And we’ll just see what opportunities and what type of options you have.”
