President Joe Biden has spoken out about how he intends to run for another term as president with Kamala Harris… even though he’ll be eighty-two-years-old when that time comes!
Here’s the full story…
Now, President Biden has thrown himself into his new role with gusto.
Months after his move to the White House, the newly-elected president has been keeping himself very busy by dismantling a whole array of controversial Trump-era regulations.
Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change – an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.
Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.
And as for the country’s ongoing racial division?
Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.
He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.
Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to “advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.”
He then reversed Trump’s infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.
Biden’s proclamation reversed Trump’s policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.
But, despite all his hard work…
Biden – just like many past presidents – has made a few mistakes along the way.
He recently laid into Vladimir Putin, escalating the already tense relationship between the countries.
Biden was asked if he believed the Russian president was a killer, to which he responded “I do.”
Following the comment, Russia recalled its ambassador from the U.S…
And demanded an apology.
Oh, and not to mention Biden’s little slip-up recently!
Earlier this month, the president was seen falling up the stairs as he boarded Air Force One which resulted in him being a laughing stock online.
Which isn’t something the president of the United States wants to be!
But it seems as if Biden has been keeping his spirits high despite his little stumble as he’s recently come forward with some very ambitious plans for the future.
But people aren’t feeling quite as ambitious over Biden’s plans…
Yesterday, the president gave his first news conference and laid out his plans for the coming months and years.
As per LadBible, Biden was asked by a member of the press why he was yet to formally announce his plans to run in 2024 as former president Donald Trump had shared his re-election plans by this point in his presidency.
The president told the media while chuckling, “My predecessor needed to. My predecessor, oh God, I miss him.”
When pressed for further details, he was a little more cagey, adding: “I said that is my expectation.”
“Look, I don’t know where you guys come from, man. I’ve never been able to travel, I’m a great respecter of fate – I’ve never been able to plan 4-and-a-half, 3-and-a-half years ahead for certain.”
But he did confirm that he expects Kamala Harris to stand as his running mate again.
“I would fully expect that to be the case,” he said, “She is doing a good job. She is a great partner.”
And when asked if he reckons if he could be facing Donald Trump in the 2024 election, he replied:
“Oh, come on. I don’t even think about – I have no idea. I have no idea if there’ll be a Republican Party – do you?”
Only time will tell to see how Biden’s presidency will run its course!
