President Joe Biden discussed the prospect of running for reelection in 2024 on the first episode of the new season of 60 Minutes, which aired on Sunday. Some Democrats are avoiding the question of whether or not the current president ought to make another bid for the presidency because it has become an issue. Although Joe Biden has stated in the past that he anticipates running for office again, Jill Biden, who is the first lady of the Biden family, recently stated that her husband and she have not addressed the matter. Biden stated that a decision had not been made about it yet.
“Listen, I told you at the beginning that it was my intention to run again, but that’s all it is—an intention,” she remarked. But is it a done deal that I would run for office once more? “We’ll just have to wait and see,” Vice President Joe Biden said, adding later that “it’s just too soon to make that type of choice.” I have a lot of respect for the way things turn out, so what I’m doing right now is just doing my job, and we’re going to finish the work together. And within the time frame that makes sense, after this upcoming election season here, continuing into next year, make a judgement as to what to do.”
Even though he is already the oldest president who has ever held the office, Biden feels that his performance as commander in chief should be the focus rather than his age. As vice president, Biden has been responsible for a number of noteworthy achievements, including the passage of landmark legislation on climate change and healthcare for veterans, to name just a few of these accomplishments.
“I respect the notion that people would say, you know, ‘You’re old,'” Vice President Joe Biden remarked, “but I think it pertains to how much energy you have, and whether or not the job you’re doing is one commensurate with what any person of any age would be able to do.”
