What is Joe Biden thinking while shaving? The American president, who will be 80 years old on November 20, said on Friday that he “intended” to run for a new term in 2024, but that he had not yet taken the formal decision.
Asked about this on the MSNBC channel, the Democrat said that if he did not decide immediately, it was because as soon as the announcement was made, “a whole series of rules were set in motion” and ” I should behave like a candidate”. “I haven’t formally made the decision yet, but that’s my intention. My intention (is) to run again and we have time to make that decision,” he said.
Jill Biden’s support
Asked if his wife, Jill Biden, was in favor of him getting back into the race, he implied that she was. “My wife thinks we’re doing something very important and I shouldn’t walk away from it,” he said after pausing.
Joe Biden had already announced his “intention” to run again in September, while remaining evasive. The oldest president ever elected in the United States, he would be 82 at the start of a possible second term, and 86 at the end. His age also regularly fuels speculation about the reality of a new candidacy.
