Biden to announce re-election bid ‘relatively soon’

Dublin, Apr 14 (EFE).- United States president Joe Biden said Friday that he will run for re-election in 2024, and will officially announce his plans “relatively soon.”

“I’ve already made that calculus. We’ll announce it relatively soon. But the trip here just reinforced my sense of optimism about what can be done,” the president told reporters as he wrapped up a four-day tour of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

“I told you my plan is to run again,” he added.

Biden has been saying for months that he intends to run for a second term, although there is still no date set for the official announcement of his candidacy.

On Monday, an NBC journalist asked Biden if he was thinking of running for office again and, as he has done on other occasions, the president reiterated his intention to do so.

“I plan on running (…) but we’re not prepared to announce it yet,” Biden said.

The Ireland trip was aimed at celebrating the 25th anniversary of the historic Good Friday Agreement and also took Biden back to his roots with visits to parts of Ireland where his ancestors were from. EFE
