On Thursday, President Biden held his very first press conference after nearly 70 days in office. Biden stumbled through this press conference with one gaffe after the other; some of the most notable blunders arrived when the president claimed to “miss” his predecessor and alleged to have arrived in the Senate 120 years prior.
Many Americans took to social media yesterday, stating that the current White House occupant simply is not well. Conservatives alleged that Biden is suffering from either dementia or other forms of cognitive regression.
However, Biden’s mental state and the issues surrounding his presidency did not stop him from announcing plans to run for re-election in 2024, according to Breitbart News.
Biden on Seeking a Second Presidential Term
Right now, with less than 100 days in office, Biden is barely getting through a fraction of his first term. After yesterday’s presser, Americans speculated that it’s only a matter of time before Biden is removed from office via the 25th Amendment and Vice President Kamala Harris steps in as president.
According to Biden, however, he doesn’t believe this will happen. When asked by a reporter, the president confirmed that seeking a second White House term during the 2024 presidential election is his “plan” and “expectation.”

Biden additionally stated that he fully plans to run for office again with Harris by his side as the vice presidential candidate. During this subject matter, the president also questioned whether or not the Republican Party will still exist in the 2024 presidential race.
Who Will Challenge Biden in 2024?
Assuming that the current president makes it to the 2024 election, Republicans will have the chance to stop Biden from getting a second term in office. Right now, there is no set candidate for the Republican Party in 2024; however, this is a matter that Republicans are working on.
There is always the possibilty of former President Trump running for office again; this is something that Trump himself hinted at while speaking at CPAC last month. Additionally, many conservatives are supportive of Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis running for the White House in 2024.
