Khanna says he's looking forward to a 'new generation leading this country' after Biden is reelected

Ro Khanna SCOTUS

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) said he is looking forward to a “new generation” of leaders after President Biden is reelected to the White House.

Khanna was asked by Peter Alexander on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether he is interested in running for president in the future, noting that he has been on the campaign trail for President Biden in recent weeks. Khanna did not say whether he would make a future bid for the White House but reiterated the need for new leaders for the country after Biden is elected to a second term.

“I am so focused, as is everyone, in trying to get President Biden elected. But I will say this: This country is hungry after that for a new generation. And we’ve got tremendous talent in our party, and there are young people on the other side as well,” Khanna replied.

“And I’m looking forward after President Biden is reelected to a new generation leading this country,” he added.

He also conceded earlier in the interview that it would be difficult to get young people’s support back for Biden, citing concerns with Israel’s ongoing war in Gaza against militant group Hamas.

“Well, the biggest thing we’re running out of time is more people dying. And we have to remember the humanitarian stakes. But, yes, it’s a challenge for our party. Young people want a war to end. But what young people want is a vision, and the president started that with the cease-fire,” he said.

“I hope he can go further, and he should call for two states. He should say in his second term he’s going to convene a peace conference in the Middle East, recognize a Palestinian state without Hamas, work with Egypt, Saudi Arabia on it,” Khanna added.
