Biden says he intends to run in 2024 but makes no commitment

President Joe Biden told reporters on Thursday his “expectation” is to make a reelection bid in 2024, but he did not set any election plans in stone.

“The answer is yes, my plan is to run for reelection,” he said during his first formal press conference as commander-in-chief. “That’s my expectation.”

By this time in office for former President Donald Trump, he had already set up a reelection committee. Biden laughed off this comparison a reporter made between the two.

“My predecessor needed to. […] Oh God, I miss him,” he joked.

Although, Biden fended off follow-up questions about whether his remarks represented a formal pledge to run in 2024.

“Look, I don’t know where you guys come from, man. […] I’m a great respecter of fate,” he said. “I’ve never been able to plan three and a half, four years ahead, for certain.”

At 78 years old, Biden is not only the oldest person to be sworn in as commander-in-chief, but he is also the oldest occupant of the Oval Office—ever. The previous record-holder for oldest president was Ronald Reagan, who—when he departed the White House in 1989—was 78 days younger than Biden was on Inauguration Day 2021.

If he runs for reelection and wins, Biden would be 82 years old at his second inauguration.

Moreover, assuming Biden does indeed run again, 2024 could very well see a rematch between him and Trump. The former president has left the door open for bid to retake the White House.

Polls have regularly indicated that if Trump were to enter the race, a majority of GOP voters would support him in the 2024 Republican presidential primaries, with him trouncing the nearest runner-ups by a longshot.

If Trump were to win reelection, he would be 78 when sworn in a second time.

Although, if Biden does not run for reelection, many have suggested that Vice President Kamala Harris should be his heir apparent.

At Thursday’s press conference, Biden said he would expect Harris to be on his ticket if he ran again. However, he deflected questions about whether he would square up against his predecessor in the next election.

“I have no idea if there will be a Republican Party,” he said. “Do you?”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’



Screen Shot 2022 09 19 at 2.41.05 PM

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
