Speaking at his first presidential press conference, 78-year-old Joe Biden said he wanted to run again in the 2024 election.
Joe Biden announced his intention to run in the next US presidential election in November 2024, during the first press conference given from the White House.
“My answer is yes. I intend to contest the re-election. This is what I expect, ”the president said.
In January, Joe Biden, 78, became the oldest person to hold the presidency in the United States. His advanced age has sparked the hypothesis that he will only serve for a four-year term.
During the press conference, the President further hoped that Vice President Kamala Harris, 56, would be his Vice President again.
The media reports that the former lawyer and senator is one of the candidates who have already been approached for the presidential election. In 2019, he ran for the Democratic primary, but threw the piece before the first ballots in early 2020.
