“After it is done in November, then I will enter into a decision-making process” about 2024, he said in an interview with CNN, referring to the midterm legislative elections, in a month.
Asked about his age, the oldest president ever elected in the United States, who will celebrate his 80th birthday this year, defended himself.
« The question is: ‘Can you do the job?’ I believe I can do the job, » he said.
« Name me a president, in recent history, who did as much as I did the first two years, » he said.
Joe Biden, who had always said he wanted to run again, has in recent weeks somewhat tempered his remarks on this subject: he explained recently, in another interview, that he certainly intended to run for a second term, but without have made a final decision.
The Democrat has repeatedly stressed that he considers himself capable of winning the election again if he has to face former Republican President Donald Trump.
At a low in the polls before the summer, Joe Biden has enjoyed a slight resurgence in popularity in recent months.
