On a prime-time interview at the White House with ABC News’ World News Tonight anchor David Muir, US president Joe Biden stated that he plans to run for re-election if in good health.
He also remarked that if former president Donald Trump were the opposite candidate for the 2024 election, it would “tempt” him even more to run for the next presidential election in 2024.
When the “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir asked the president if he was certain about him running for re-election, Biden replied, “If I’m in the health I’m in now – I’m in good health – then, in fact, I would run again,” he added “I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times.”
He was also asked about his former opponent Donald Trump. He replied by saying, “Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump for the nominee? That’ll increase the prospect of running.”
Although the president, 79, is willing to run for re-election in 2024, it is still uncertain whether or not he will be able to run due to health conditions. However, Biden is appears confident about a re-election campaign if his health remains stable.
