Biden confirmed that he intends to participate in the 2024 elections

President Joe Biden has confirmed that he plans to run for a second term.

During his first press conference, the President outlined plans for the coming months and years, including the 2024 elections.

A press representative asked Biden why he has not yet officially announced his intention to run in 2024, given that former President Donald Trump has already shared his plans for the upcoming elections.

«My predecessor needed it. Biden replied, » God, I miss him.»

«My answer is: yes. I plan to run for the second time, these are my expectations.»

When asked to clarify the details, the president reacted a little more evasively, emphasizing: «I said that these are my expectations.»

«I have great respect for the will of fate and could never plan for four and a half or three and a half years ahead for sure.»

However, he confirmed that he expects Kamala Harris to be his partner again in the upcoming race, noting that the vice is «doing great» and is a «great partner».

When asked if he believes that he will again oppose Trump in the elections, Biden said that he is «not even thinking» about this yet.

«I have no idea. I don’t even know if there will be a Republican Party [by that time].»

At the conference, Biden also spoke about issues that his administration plans to focus on: including the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and its economic consequences, arms control and relations with the DPRK.
