Sarah Palin Says ‘It’s Too Late’ To Reason With Biden; Open To Being Trump’s Running Mate

Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin is making a political comeback.

Palin, who is running for Alaska’s lone House seat following the death of long-serving Republican Rep. Don Young last month, said she would be open to being Donald Trump’s running mate in 2024.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Palin dismissed criticism that she is seeking to bolster her brand by running.

“I love to work, and anyone who is around me, they know,” she said. “What I’m doing is applying for a job, for Alaskans, saying: ‘Hey, you guys would be my boss. Do you want to hire me? Because if you do, I’ll do a good job for you, and I won’t back down.’”

“I mean, we’re going to just, you know, stick with the issues and stick with the plans that we have for Alaska,” she told supporters at the event. Jobs for Alaskans from the state’s rich natural resources would be her first priority if elected, she said, and called the state “the Fort Knox of our great Union.”

Palin said if Trump runs for president in 2024 and asks her to be his running mate, she’d be open to the idea.


She also slammed President Joe Biden, saying “it’s too late to get through” to him.

“He’s president now and it’s a little bit fun to know that we were right on so many things. But I think it’s too late to get through to him,” she said.

In a recent op-ed, Palin explained that during her 2008 vice presidential debate against Biden, “The price of gas was $3.65 a gallon and a barrel of oil was $97 dollars.”


“Biden had no solutions to the problem of high gas prices, and 13 years later, he remains as clueless,” Palin wrote.

Palin wrote: “Biden only reluctantly acknowledges that we have supply shortages. His baffling solution is to import oil from foreign countries. His response to high energy prices is to run and beg OPEC, the international cartel, for more oil. Biden’s decisions, such as killing the Keystone Pipeline and stopping responsible oil and gas development on federal land, were all deliberate and illegal actions made by an administration that does not understand whatsoever how we produce our energy. Consequences took a few months to kick in, but we’re feeling them now. Drilling has slowed. Exploration has slowed. Investment has been scared away. Devastating ramifications are around the corner.”

She added: “America now suffers because two million fewer barrels of oil are being produced every day compared to just one year ago. The diminished supply caused the huge spike in prices, which gets compounded across every other sector of the economy, including agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and job creation in general.”

During an interview in October on Fox News, the former Alaska governor argued that “we like to tell our children anyone can grow up to become president, but Democrats took that too far” with Joe Biden.


“Every time you show these clips I think this can’t be our country. These are episodes of “beef.” My team would text each other after the show saying that’s hilarious but it could never happen in real life. Now we are texting, beef had nothing compared to what Kamala and Joe are presenting to this country,” Palin said.

“We like to tell children anyone can grow up to be president. Well, I think the Democrats took that too far who they settled for and the country evidently accepted,” she added.
