Joe Biden continues to amaze his closest supporters and enemies. The 79-year-old US president has announced that he is going to run for a second term in 2024.

As TASS reported with reference to The Washington Post, today many in America believe that by the time of the new elections Biden will be 81 years old and should not be engaged in such a difficult matter. But in recent weeks, the president's rating has been declining, and therefore voters, in the opinion of the Democrats, must certainly support the head of the White House.

True, even in the Democratic camp, writes WP, many are skeptical about such statements by the president and his aides. These people believe that, regardless of their true plans, it is beneficial for them to talk about re-election in order to prevent the weakening of Biden's positions now. Others point out that another election campaign could mean a much more busy schedule than the relatively calm 2020 campaign, most of the events in which were held in a virtual format due to the pandemic.

At the same time, according to the publication, if Joe Biden decides to participate in the presidential race, the officials of the Democratic Party at the stage of the internal party struggle for the nomination of the Democratic candidate in the elections intend to support the incumbent head of state, and not other candidates.

No one in Washington even hinted at the poor health of the President of the United States.

It is expected that Biden will officially announce his decision regarding participation in the struggle for the presidency after the midterm elections to Congress. They will take place in November 2022.
