President Donald Trump was caught on a video that immediately went viral, disparaging President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Trump, who was seated in a golf cart, appeared to be talking to a couple of people when his remarks were captured on video. It does not seem like Trump knows the video is being recorded.

“How’d I do with the debate the other night?” Trump asked a small group of reporters and onlookers before referring to his rival as an “old, broken down pile of crap.”

“He’s a bad guy. He just quit, you know, he’s quitting. He’s quitting the race,” Trump continued. “Yup, I got him out of the race. And that means we have Kamala.”

Trump then added, “I think she’s gonna be better. She’s so bad. She’s so pathetic. She’s so fu***ng bad.” Switching back to Biden, Trump noted further: “Could you imagine that guy dealing with Putin and the president of China, who’s a fierce person. He’s a fierce man.”

A survey by Suffolk University/USA Today revealed that almost one-third of voters are more likely to support Trump after the first presidential debate. Additionally, most respondents believe that Democrats should consider replacing Biden as their nominee.

While 51% of voters believe Trump should be replaced as the Republican nominee, dissatisfaction with Biden is more apparent, especially among Democrats. Over 40% of Democrats think Biden should be replaced after his debate performance.

Trump’s support base is stronger in comparison. Only 14% of Republicans and 12% of Trump supporters think the GOP should consider a different candidate. In addition, the debate appeared to bolster Trump’s position, as 31% of respondents said his performance made them more likely to support him, the survey found.

On the contrary, only 10% of all voters reported that Biden’s debate performance raised their likelihood of voting for him, while 9% stated that the debate made them more likely to support a third-party candidate. Biden’s critics emphasized worries about his mental acuity, with opponents using words such as “confused” and “incoherent” to characterize his performance.

At the same time, those supporting Trump used descriptors such as “coherent” and “articulate” in praise of him.

“The findings, taken in the three days after the [June 27] debate, underscore the significant challenge for the Biden campaign as it tries to recover and put this debate behind them amid calls for the president to withdraw,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.

The survey also found that by a 5-to-1 margin, voters from both parties say Trump won the debate.

Former South Carolina governor and 2024 GOP presidential contender Nikki Haley, meanwhile, is warning her party to prepare for Biden to be replaced with a “younger” and more “vibrant” candidate.

“They are going to be smart about it. They’re going to bring somebody younger. They’re going to bring somebody vibrant. They’re going to bring somebody tested,” Haley told The Wall Street Journal following Biden’s horrific debate performance against former President Donald Trump on Thursday.

“This is a time for Republicans to prepare and get ready for what’s to come because there is no way that there will be a surviving Democratic Party if they allow Joe Biden to continue to be the candidate,” she added.

In a direct reference to Biden’s performance, Haley noted further: “Our enemies just saw that they have between now and Jan. 20 to do whatever it is they want to do.”

Haley and Trump had a contentious and sometimes bitter rivalry during the primary season, but she told the WSJ that she had recently reached out to the former president, whom she served as UN ambassador, and that the two of them had “a good conversation.”
