White House says Joe Biden will run for 2024 re-election

President Joe Biden is not giving in and will run for re-election in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Monday evening.

“That is his intention,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One, pointing to various reports that the 79-year-old had told advisers and staff that he would be back.

Biden, 79, was already the oldest presidential candidate to be elected Commander-in-Chief when he claimed the November 2020 election. He will have 15 days left until his 82nd birthday on November 5, 2024, the next time voters Americans will go to the polls to choose their leader.

Voters are already expressing their displeasure at the prospect of his return, as polls show.

“The President remains a healthy and vigorous man, 78 years old, who is fit to successfully carry out the functions of the Presidency, including those of Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander-in-Chief,” Kevin O ‘Connor, the White House Physician, wrote.

As recently as last week, former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), a longtime friend of the president, sparked speculation when he suggested to the New York Times Biden cannot run for re-election.

“I hope the president will stand for re-election,” Dodd said. “But for some reason that might not be the case, it’s hard to believe there would be a shortlist without Kamala’s name. She is Vice President of the United States.
