Biden 'intends' to run for second term

Biden ‘intends’ to run for second term

US President Joe Biden, who turns 80 in November, said on Friday that he “intends” to run for re-election in 2024. He says he hasn’t made a formal decision yet.

Speaking on MSNBC, he explained that the Democratic Party is still waiting to make a decision, but once he announces his candidacy, “the whole set of rules will come into play” and he will have to “act as a candidate”.

“I haven’t made a formal decision yet, but my intention is to run again (…) and we have time to make that decision,” Biden said. When his wife, Jill, asked if he was in favor of running for re-election, he implied that he was. “My wife thinks we’re doing something important and I shouldn’t run away from it,” he said.
