US President Joe Biden will run for office again in 2024, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has said. Biden and top administration officials have already repeatedly confirmed his intention to launch a re-election bid, she pointed out.
“The President, as you know, has been asked that question many times, and he has answered it. His answer has been pretty simple, which is: Yes, he’s running for re-election. I can’t say more than that,” Jean-Pierre said during a regular press briefing on Monday.
Biden has faced growing concerns about his age and health issues, with even fellow Democrats suggesting they might be obstacles on his path to re-election. The president, who’s 79, would be 86 by the end of a second term.
