The United States President, Joe Biden, has announced that he will be running for re-election as president of the US in 2024.
This is as he said the “battle for the soul of the nation isn’t yet complete” in his new 2024 Launch video Tuesday morning.
Biden made his re-election announcement four years after he announced his bid to run for the US presidency for the first term on April 25, 2019.
The US president, announcing the launch of his campaign for his re-election, wrote on his verified Twitter page: “Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours
That’s why I’m running for reelection as President of the United States. Join us. Let’s finish the job.”
He tagged his campaign: “Let’s finish the job.”
After a series of big legislative wins and momentous foreign policy struggles in his first two years in office, Biden has no real challenger from within the Democratic Party.
But in a campaign that may result in a rematch of the 2020 election against Donald Trump, he is expected to face constant and fierce scrutiny over his age.
The veteran Democrat would be 86 by the end of a second term. Even if a medical exam in February found him “fit” to execute the duties of the presidency, many including in his own voter base believe he is too old.
