My plan is to run for reelection in 2024: Joe Biden

Traditionally, there is no question as to whether a first-term US president will run for reelection. Former president Donald Trump, for example, announced his plans to seek reelection on his first day in office.

President Joe Biden on March 25 said he would likely seek reelection in 2024, but the 78-year-old Democrat left open the possibility of stepping aside after one term.

“My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation,” Biden told reporters in a wide-ranging news conference, the first of his young presidency.

He later pushed back against a reporter's suggestion that his 2024 plans were definite.

“I said, ‘That is my expectation,’” Biden said. “I’m a great respecter of fate. I’ve never been able to plan four-and-a-half, three-and-a-half years ahead for certain."
