The 2024 Presidential race isn’t exactly taking the most conventional of shapes thus far, as Americans continue to bear witness to monumental and dynamic shifts in the way our politicking looks and behaves.
This is truly a new era of American politics, and the strange current status of the 2024 contest is a testament to that. Donald Trump is up for reelection, with his former Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley challenging him in the primaries.
Over on the left, Marianne Williamson has announced her candidacy, but many within the media have written her campaign off as little more than a not-so-subtly disguised book tour.
The big question for Democrats isn’t whether or not Joe Biden is going to run, but rather: Should he run?
The octogenarian incumbent appears to be revealing his intent this week.
President Joe Biden told Al Roker on TODAY during a quick chat at the annual White House Easter egg roll that he plans on running for reelection in 2024.
“I plan on running Al, but we’re not prepared to announce it yet,” Biden said alongside first lady Jill Biden.
The President then made a rather strange prediction about how long he might stay in office.
Biden, 80, let the news slip early Monday after Al asked how many more White House Easter egg events he planned on participating in, nudging the president to say whether he had eyes on a second term.
“I plan on at least three or four more Easter egg rolls,” Biden said as the two chatted on the Truman Balcony. “Maybe five. Maybe six, what the hell.”
The news won’t be as welcomed as Biden may have thought, given that many within the Democratic Party are opposed to his nomination in 2024.
