Joe Biden aspires to a second term

US President Joe Biden has quelled Democrats’ speculation about his succession by saying he will run for a second term in 2024.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced Monday that US President Joe Biden intends to run for re-election in the 2024 presidential election.

When a reporter asked during the daily press conference if Biden would be a candidate to succeed himself in 2024, Psaki replied, “That’s really his intention.” The spokeswoman did not give further details.

Kamala Harris

The 2024 campaign is already casting a shadow over Democrats. That’s because Biden will be 82 by then. If he does not run for a second term, Vice President Kamala Harris appears to be the logical candidate for president.

However, many Democrats fear that they will lose with Harris the presidential election in 2024. In the Polls 51 percent of voters think it is unfavorable, compared to 41 percent who have favorable opinions.

Against this backdrop, some Democrats who entered the presidential race in 2020 — such as Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren — would have likely aspired to do so again in 2024.


In any case, questions will remain about Biden’s physical readiness. Last Friday, the 79-year-old president underwent a bowel examination, but doctors declared him “fit for service”.
