(Washington) “This will increase my chances of running for office”: Joe Biden has said that if Donald Trump runs in the 2024 presidential election, he will be even more determined to run for a second term.
The 79-year-old Democrat leader spoke in an interview with the ABC channel that aired Wednesday night.
Asked if he would run for re-election on his own, Mr Biden said “yes”.
“But listen. I am someone who respects fate very much […]. If I have the health I have now, if I am healthy, I will reappear. ”
What if he has to face 75-year-old Donald Trump again?
“You’re trying to provoke me,” he replied with a smile.
“Of course, if Donald Trump is a candidate, why shouldn’t I run against him? This will increase my chances of emergence,” he said.
The 2020 presidential election against Joe Biden has been described as “fraudulent” and “stolen”. Trump continues to hammer unsubstantiated.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
The elderly Biden, who has sparked speculation about his intentions for 2024, has already announced that he plans to compete again.
Although its vice president, Kamala Harris, was initially seen as her natural successor, Washington is spreading rumors about her relationship with the president and her political future.
MMe Harris, 57, seems to be having a hard time finding his place in the White House, where he is responsible for particularly subtle tasks related to the suffrage of minorities or the origin of the migration crisis on Mexico’s southern border.
