US President, Joe Biden has refused to confirm if he intends to run for re-election in 2024.
“Sir, are you committed to running again, or are there certain conditions that have to be right?” CBS 60 minutes host Pelley asked in an interview published Sunday September 18.
“Look, if I were to say to you, I’m running again, all of a sudden, a whole range of things come into play that I have– requirements I have to change and move and do,” Mr. Biden said.
“In terms of election laws. and it’s much too early to make that kind of decision. I’m a great respecter of fate. And so, what I’m doing is I’m doing my job. I’m gonna do that job. And within the timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year, make a judgment on what to do.”
“You say that it’s much too early to make that decision,” Pelley said. “I take it the decision has not been made in your own head?”
“Look, my intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again,” the president said. “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
President Biden said he hopes to retain control of the House and the Senate in the midterm election in November. But less than half the country approves of the job he’s done according to polls.
