Fetterman issued his comments when speaking about the political fallout surrounding the former president’s indictment.
“It doesn’t matter. I’m a senator, and I’m not sure how many times he’s been indicted. He’s been impeached twice. Has that changed anything? You’re still seeing Trump signs everywhere in Pennsylvania. You have to respect his strength in all of that,” he said.
Fetterman said that Trump could even be “competitive” in the state of Pennsylvania based on what he sees from voters, though he did feel that he has to break a difficult ceiling.
“Trump would be very competitive in Pennsylvania. But Trump has to perform above his ceiling. I think there’s a hard ceiling in Pennsylvania he can’t get past,” he said.
The senator, who himself got elected despite medical issues related to a stroke, dismissed concerns about President Biden’s age, calling him “sharp” and “aware.”
“I’m not concerned about his age. And even if I was, who cares? There’s nothing you can do about his age,” Fetterman said. “I’ve spent enough time around him. He’s sharp, he’s aware, he is absolutely up to the task. I’ll be doing whatever his campaign asks of me. I know Pennsylvania, I’ve won Pennsylvania. I’ll be helping with whatever he asks.”
A recent Quinnipiac University poll showed Donald Trump and Joe Biden in a tight race in Pennsylvania. “In a head-to-head rematch, Trump edges out Biden by a single percentage point in the Keystone State, garnering 47 percent to Biden’s 46 percent support,” reported Breitbart News.
