WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden has been in office a little more than two months, but he said he’s already planning to run for a second term in 2024.
“Yes, my plan is to run for reelection,” he said during his first formal news conference as president Thursday. “That’s my expectation.”
Biden said he also “would fully expect” that Vice President Kamala Harris would remain on the ticket as his running mate for a second term.
“She’s a great partner,” he said.
Biden, 78, became the oldest president in history when he took office in January.
Biden was asked Thursday whether he would defeat former President Donald Trump in a rematch of the 2020 race.
“Oh I don’t even think about it,” he said. “I have no idea.”
