US President Joe Biden says he will run for a second term in office.
The 78-year-old President said this on Thursday during his first formal media briefing since taking office in January.
In the next election in 2024, President Biden will be 82years old
“My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation,” he said in response to a question on if he will seek reelection.
“I’m a great respecter of fate. I’ve never been able to plan four-and-a-half or three-and-a-half years ahead for certain.
“I want to change the paradigm, where we start to reward work, and not just wealth.”
On if he will run with Vice-President Kamala Harris, Biden said: “I would fully expect that to be the case. She’s doing a great job; she’s a great partner.”
Biden, also took a slight dig at the former US President Donald Trump, saying “I miss my predecessor”.
