GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California said on Friday that President Joe Biden doesn’t possess the “energy” of former President Donald Trump, after a recent meeting at the White House.
McCarthy, who is seeking to regain control of the House in next year’s midterm elections, met with Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday, alongside GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.
While being interviewed on Fox News by host Sean Hannity, McCarthy gave his assessment of the meeting after Hannity asked if Biden was “engaged” and had a “high level” of energy.
“He was with it and he was engaging and he was giving me numbers and talking,” he said. “But at no time, having known Joe Biden for quite some time, does he have the energy of Donald Trump. We both know it.”
