Biden says he will officially announce that he is running for re-election “very soon”

Washington (BLAZETRENDS).- The president of the United States, Joe Biden, said this Monday that “very soon” he will formally announce that he is running for re-election in the 2024 elections, just when the media has anticipated that he will do so this Tuesday.

“I have already told you that I am planning to introduce myself. I will let you know very soon, ”he said Monday when answering questions from the press at the White House.

Speculation about Biden’s aspiration

Biden is expected to officially announce his candidacy for re-election this Tuesday, according to local media, citing sources with knowledge of his plans.

The format chosen to make the announcement will be a video and its release date, April 25, will be the same as Biden chose four years ago to announce that he would compete for the Democratic Party’s nomination for the 2020 presidential election.

Asked by BLAZETRENDS, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the party’s executive body, has refused to confirm whether Biden will launch his candidacy on Tuesday.

The president, who at 80 is the oldest president in the history of the United States, has been saying for months that he intends to run for re-election.

When he was visiting Ireland on April 14, he already said the announcement would come “relatively soon” when asked by journalists.

And a few days earlier, on April 10, Biden targeted an NBC reporter who planned to run in the election but was not yet ready to officially announce it.

Biden could fight in 2024 with former US President Donald Trump (2017-2021), whom he already defeated in 2020.

A range of Republican candidates, including Trump

Trump has announced his intention to compete for the Republican nomination in that party’s primary process despite the fact that he is involved in several legal problems and has already been formally charged in a criminal case in New York.

In addition to Trump, there are five other candidates on the Republican side: former US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, former Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, conservative radio host Larry Elder and businessman Perry Johnson. .

Other conservative politicians have also hinted that they are interested in running, such as the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, or the former vice president with Trump, Mike Pence, although so far none have taken the step.

On the Democratic side, Biden seems to have a clear field, since the great personalities of the party have ruled out running and only has competition from marginal figures.

Specifically, only two figures have declared their intention to compete for the Democratic nomination: the environmental lawyer and anti-vaxxer activist Robert F. Kennedy, nephew of President John F. Kennedy (1961-1963), and the author of self-help books Marianne Williamson .

The Democratic National Committee fully endorses Biden and has already said it does not plan to host primary debates.
