Furthermore, UK-based New Yorker Mitch Feierstein, who also stood as a candidate for the Brexit Party in Reading East in the general election in 2019, rates the chances of the 78-year-old former Delaware senator completing his term at just three percent. Former Wall Street banker Mr Feierstein was speaking at a time when Mr Biden was coming under increasing pressure for his decision to withdraw US troops from the war-torn country on August 31.
There are deep concerns about Islamic militants the Taliban, which overthrew the Government of President Ashraf Ghani earlier this month, with Mr Ghani having fled the country.
Mr Feierstein said he put the chances of Mr Biden stepping down by the end of the 2021 at more than 50 percent.
He told Express.co.uk: “I think there’s a three percent chance he could finish four years, and a 97 percent chance he’ll be gone before that.
“I wrote in October that if Biden wins, Biden will likely resign within a year, and Harris, the person no one elected president, and Obama wanted, will become anointed as president then she gets to appoint her own vice president.
“This isn’t about Biden bashing – this is just an abject reality that people need to understand about what’s going on and what has been going on.
“This is about a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and it’s probably one of the biggest ones in our lifetime with what’s on there and the consequences and international blowback.
“The Biden administration’s mishandling of this crisis will linger on for decades.”
Mr Feierstein said: “I think the problem with what’s going on there, is you have a terrorist organisation and the Taliban, saying that they’re inclusive and giving some double-talk jargon.
“And the woke administrations around the world now are saying they will listen to it but you can’t negotiate with a terrorist and you can’t let a terrorist dictate policy to you.”
Asked whether Mr Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump also bore some responsibility, given his administration signed a deal with the Taliban last year, Mr Feierstein dismissed the suggestion as a “diversion”.
He added: “My understanding from my contacts about that agreement and what was published for that agreement is one of the caveats that Trump put into that agreement was if the Taliban harmed one hair on the heads of a US citizen or any of the collaborators or the partners that we had, our allies, he would go into the actual villages where these Taliban came from and decimate the villages.

“I think when you, when you, when you deal with a terrorist, you have to have a different type of mentality, you can’t appease them.
“You have to you have to go in with a hard line – and now we’ve got a situation where we don’t know is there a 10,000 hostages, is there 20,000.
“People have been trying to get out of that country and the Taliban is not letting them through.
“What’s the mechanism for getting them out? You don’t just know it’s something without a plan and this is what he’s done.”
With specific reference to Mr Biden’s figure prospects, Mr Feierstein said: “Before the end of his term, I think that that’s probably an 85 to 90 percent probability but I’m not so sure that it will be his choice
“There’s only a few ways that he can go – he’s got to resign, or he’s got to be impeached, or they’ve got to use section four of the 25th Amendment, which means they need a majority of the 15 cabinet members to vote that he’s not compos mentis mentors, which I think it’s unlikely that they’re going to get.
“But before the election, I did TV shows and I cautioned everybody – I said you’re not electing Joe Biden, you’re electing Kamala Harris, who was actually unelectable.”
He claimed: “She was unelectable because across the country I think she had less than, I don’t remember what it was but it was under five percent of the popular support of voters.
“So I mean she was unelectable and this was a way to insert her and anoint her as President.”
